Bayern Munich manager, Hansi Flick has insisted that his team will stick with their attacking principles despite the threat posed by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final.
With Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Angel Di Maria have the ability to unlock the German champions having reunited to devastating effect in the semi-final win over Leipzig, but Flick is not fazed by facing such a talented triumvirate.
“In our games over the last 10 months we’ve always tried to impose our style on the opposition and always played with a high line,” Flick said.
“Ultimately we’ve got results doing that, so we won’t change too much on that score.
“What we’ve noticed firstly is the fact we’ve had this high line, we don’t necessarily want to give too much space to the opposition, but of course there’s quite a lot of space in behind our defensive line.
“What is important is we can press the opposition when we are in possession, we have to make sure we can cover all that ground when it goes behind.
“It’s important to cut out those passing lines and not give our opponent space to pass the ball into. They have pace and are a top team with incredible players.”
