The English coach felt the result was appropriate...

Wolfsburg coach Steve McClaren feels that his side's 2010 slide was partially arrested despite the fact that they could not beat Bayern Munich at home.

Only a late equaliser from Sascha Riether gave the Wolves a share of the spoils, but the Englishman was far from unhappy at this outcome.

"For the first 20 minutes we didn't play well, but then the team showed character and never stopped fighting," said the former Twente boss to reporters after the game.

"I am generally satisfied with the performance. After the training camp break we wanted to show a reaction, and we succeeded."

Arne Friedrich added, "The fans today gave their support to a good team performance that brought rewards.

"There was a strong fighting spirit and a difficult opening thirty minutes. 1-1 was appropriate, and the team played as a unit."

Marcel Schaefer concluded, "The draw was deserved. We let in a silly goal at the start but fought back nicely.

"The team has struggled to put in good performances and the fans have been great. Right now things aren't perfect but we showed that morale is high and we got a late equaliser."
