Robert Gumny was interviewed on Viaplay after his Augsburg unexpected victory over Bayern Munich. The Pole admitted in it that he is not a football fan.
The former footballer of Lech Poznań played the full 90 minutes and effectively made the life of the titled rival’s winger difficult, sometimes also helping in the offensive. This helped Augsburg to reach for three points that no one at the club had expected before the game. It was already the Pole’s twelfth full-time match this league season.
However, it is not always played against such big clubs. Gumny, although he appreciates who his team managed to win, did not judge the attitude of the Bavarians very well.
– At the pre-match briefing, the coach wished the defenders good luck, because it is known what class our today’s opponents are in. Bayern players were able to create situations for themselves, but not as good as we are used to. I must admit that I was a bit surprised by their attitude. They played on a walker, they did not give one hundred percent of the possibilities. We chastised them for this. But winning against Bayern is always a great art, not only for us. It doesn’t happen every day. This is something phenomenal for us and for our position in the table.
This one is still not the best. Augsburg escaped from the play-off spot thanks to their victory, but Stuttgart is yet to play their game.
– We needed points and we need them further. In this match I was supposed to go to the high positioned side defender and disturb him in constructing the action. After Alphonso Davis walked in, we switched to play in the top five, which is less to my liking. I prefer playing in four, then I can “run” “on the offensive”. Today I had two crosses – Gumny summed up his performance.
The two-time Polish representative was also asked why he did not exchange the jersey with any Bayern player.
– I don’t collect T-shirts. I’m not a big football fan, neither is Bayern. I’d rather give my boys away from here, ‘he replied.
