Guardiola: Bayern will be even better in 2015

The manager feels that the Bundesliga leaders can step their game up another level after the winter break despite opening up an 11-point lead at the top of the table

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola wants his team to continue to develop and improve in the second half of the season.

The Bavarian giants opened up an 11-point lead at the Bundesliga summit as Wolfsburg were held to a draw at Borussia Dortmund following Tuesday’s 2-0 victory over Freiburg.

Despite that advantage, and qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League having won their group, the Spanish coach still feels there are things that his side can work on in the new year.

“My wish for the new year is that we play better,” Guardiola said game. “It’s how it is at a big club. You always have to improve.

“For us it is the gameplay and minor details. They make, especially in the Champions League, the difference in the end.”

Bayern, who remain unbeaten in the Bundesliga, travel to face Mainz on Friday in their final game of the year before a six-week break from league action.
