Bayern have ‘big plans’ – Rodriguez


James Rodriguez is hoping the recent win over Paris Saint-Germain will spur Bayern Munich on for the rest of the season.

Bayern gained some form of revenge for the 3-0 defeat to PSG early on in the Champions League group stage with a 3-1 victory at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night, although the result was not enough to clinch top spot ahead of their French opponents.

The Bavarians are already six points clear at the top of the Bundesliga and the appointment of Jupp Heynckes for a third time on October 6 has coincided with a big upturn in form.

Colombia international Rodriguez has been given more opportunities since the change in management and he is confident his side can use the victory over Les Parisiens as another forward move.

“It’s done a lot of good. The win gave us a great deal of self-confidence for our upcoming games,” he was quoted as saying by “Hopefully, we still have a lot to play, because we’ve got big plans for the rest of the season.

“We’ve shown that we needn’t fear a great team like PSG. It was a fair result.”
