fcbayern.de: Toni, we can see Arjen Robben and Mario Gomez from here, working towards comebacks. But the squad is well stocked at the moment, and you seem to be covering superbly for these two world-class players.
Toni Kroos: Yes, we’re coping well. But I’m looking forward to having both of them back. It’ll give us even more quality and even more options. One thing’s for certain: we definitely won’t be worse off (laughs).
Apart from the depth in the squad, what are the hallmarks of the current team?
Obviously, each one of us is even hungrier after two seasons without silverware. Just look at our performances in the league, where we’ve hardly ever eased off up to now.
On Saturday evening, Jupp Heynckes praised what he considered the best performance of the season so far.
We’ve turned in a number of good displays in recent weeks. But even in those matches, there were always periods where we weren’t quite as dominant. In Düsseldorf, we were wide awake for the full 90 minutes, so all in all, it was our best game so far.
You’ve set a new Bundesliga record with eight wins from eight games. What does that mean to you?
It really is just a sideshow, but we’re obviously delighted with the 24 points. Our target was to stride clear at the top and not have to play catch up. It’s gone very well so far and it’s a perfect start.
