Bayern Munich bounced back from dropping their first points in 11 games a fortnight ago by returning to winning ways with a 4-0 triumph against Hertha Berlin.

Mario Gomez started and finished the scoring, with further goals from Franck Ribery and Bastian Schweinsteiger making it 3-0 to the hosts inside the first 13 minutes. Ribery was then fouled inside the penalty area by Roman Hubnik and Gomez stepped up to score from the spot to seal another comprehensive win for the Bundesliga leaders.

Speaking to his club's official website after the game, the Bayern boss lauded his side, saying: "The team has come out of the international break and immediately hit the ground running with total focus on the Bundesliga.

"We were outstanding, especially in the first half. We let the ball do the work, our passing was brilliant and we scored three early goals. It was a superb start to the match. We showed all our authority in the second half, retained possession and still created a few chances.

"We'd have been able to shift up a gear if necessary. The team took it totally seriously. Yet again, we didn't allow our opponents a chance, with the exception of one opening in the 88th minute. That's very important to me personally.

"We had plenty of chances of our own and we could have won by more. It was a terrific display from the whole team. The way my team is playing football at the moment isn't something you see every day."

Heynckes also lauded Ribery, Boateng, Schweinstiger and Kroos' for their contribution to the cause.

"Ribery had a tremendous game, but Boateng on the right, Schweinsteiger and Kroos pleased me as well. However, after such a good team performance, it wouldn't be right to single out individuals", he concluded.
