    Goretzka: Bayern ´just love playing football´

    Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka says the side “just love playing football” after hammering Bochum 7-0 in the German Bundesliga on Saturday.

    The German champions turned on the style with a stunning display, with Joshua Kimmich netting a double, while four others scored along with a Vasilios Lampropoulos own goal.

    Bayern raced to a 4-0 half-time lead with first-half strikes from Leroy Sane, Kimmich and Serge Gnabry before the Lampropoulos own goal.

    Robert Lewandowski added a fifth on the hour, before Kimmich and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting rounded out a comprehensive performance as Bayern dominated with 24-5 shots including 15 on target to Bochum’s none.

    “We just love playing football,” said Goretzka who got the assist for Kimmich’s second goal.

    “We want to develop more, from game to game, and absorb our new coach’s philosophy more and more.

    “Today was a lot of fun for us, but not so much for Bochum. Of course, I’m always a bit sorry about that from a personal standpoint.

    “We didn’t give Bochum any breathing space. The first 10 minutes were a bit hectic. That’s when they got into playing the game they wanted to play – long balls, a lot of fighting for the second ball.

    “But then we gradually found our structure and defended very well. That’s just how we dominated.”

    Bayern have enjoyed an excellent start to life under new head coach Julian Nagelsmann, who replaced Hansi Flick in the off-season.

    The Bavarians are top of the Bundesliga with 13 points from five games, while they have won their past seven games in all competitions.

    Nagelsmann said he was happy with the way his side played and offered praise to Sane, who opened the scoring with a fine free-kick.

    “I see [Sane] developing very positively,” Nagelsmann said. “He was highly committed but he was also a full throttle in the games before the international break.

    “He is fully committed in situations which don’t have anything to do with talent. He rewards himself by getting in these situations.

    “I remember a situation in which he kept on defending for 30 metres and won the ball before his own box. He showed the same with the national team and scored today. Offensively he is always in a good position.

    “Everyone tries to limit him to the wing but he has now played for the fourth time as a bit of an attacking midfielder. He finds spaces where he can use his qualities.”

    Former Manchester City attacker Sane has scored two goals and provided two assists from five Bundesliga games this term.
