Bayern keep cool after Supercup loss
Bayern Munich are remaining calm after their 4-2 Supercup defeat by Borussia Dortmund, with coach Pep Guardiola saying there was time to correct "minor mistakes" before the Bundesliga season begins.
It was the first time Bayern had conceded more than three goals in a competitive game since their 5-2 defeat to the same opponents in the 2012 DFB-Pokal final.
"We now have ten days until the Bundelsiga kicks off. We'll correct our minor mistakes," Guardiola said. "Overall, I am satisfied with our performance. We played well and took up good positions."
Guardiola, who mixed up his starting formation and played Croatian attacker Mario Mandzukic on the left wing in the first half, added: "Even though we lost, I don't have the feeling Dortmund were superior."
Netherlands international Arjen Robben, who scored both Bayern goals, told kicker the treble-winners "threw it away".
“We should not panic,” he said. "We made mistakes. We need to learn from that, but I don't want to exaggerate it.
"You always play to win. Every title is one more, and that's why we want to win all titles. It did not work out in the Supercup, but there are still a lot of titles left to win."
Bayern skipper Philipp Lahm said: "We still have to keep on working, but we knew that. We still need a little time before everything works the way we want it to work."
Winger Thomas Muller echoed his words and said: "Any team can be beaten if they don't perform at their best - ourselves included.
"That applies even more when you're playing Dortmund, who are a great team as well. So we didn't lose the Supercup to any old team. Although, that said, we'd still rather have won it."
