Coach Felix Magath believes that winning the Champions League is now out of Bayern Munich’s reach, but admitted he was satisified with winning two German league and cup doubles in his first two seasons in charge.
“Winning the Champions League is unrealistic,” Magath told Bild.
“Next season, we’ll have to wait and see how all our international players recover from the World Cup,” Magath added. “The tournament can hurt us.”
Magath received criticism from Bayern baord members following the club’s Champions League round of 16 defeat to Milan, but Magath said his players had much to be proud of.
“The German double is a great achievement,” he said.
“We defended both titles. I was disappointed, too, at getting knocked out of the Champions League, but I can’t figure out what the difference is between going out in the round of 16 or the semi-final when it’s against a good team like AC Milan.”
