"We slowed things down too much in the first half. The players tested my patience a little too much, but at the end of the day, it was enough to beat a strong Bremen side," the coach told Bayern Munich's official website.
"I had to use some strong language at half-time.”
Luiz Gustavo and summer signing Mario Mandzukic found the net to give Bayern all three points. The Brazilian was pleased to get on the score sheet, but more encouraged by the win, stating that, "the opening goal helped us a lot, because we were in control again after that.”
Bayern Munich next play BATE in the Champions League group stages on Tuesday afternoon.
