Thoughts after the game

Drexler: “We struck at the right times”

After the 4:0 home win against SC Freiburg, NetCologne FC-TV with head coach, Markus Gisdol, Dominick Drexler and Mark Uth.

Markus Gisdol: “It was very difficult. The entire week has cost us a lot of energy. A thank you to the coaching staff for trying out one or two things when the back-three and the three players up front could have caused us real problems. We did that well and everything worked out. We were stable, apart from that one moment before the break. But we had good chances and I’m happy that we were able to come through such a tough task so well.”

Dominick Drexler: “We wanted to play aggressive, and that was the case. Stay compact, counter quickly. At the moment, we obviously have Jhon up front and someone who can give us a way out on his own. Just like in the second-half, when we were dug in a little. I believe we have that we struck at the right times and were always dangerous. We defended with passion and came away with a deserved win in the end. Although you can always concede a goal when things go differently. It was great, that we came away with a clean sheet and that we scored late on.”

Mark Uth: “We defended very, very well. We barely let anything through. A long ball, which we didn’t defend very well. Otherwise, it was super and a big compliment to the boys at the back, who didn’t have it easy last week in Dortmund. BVB is a different class, they are simply too good. We must win our games here, we did that perfectly and we worked our goals well and scored at the right times. We can keep that going, as far as I’m concerned!”
