Bundesliga “News” Wagner sees “flimsy taste” – TOP STORIES

by: Adam Smith


FC Bayern Munich have a miserable end to the year against VfL Wolfsburg. RB Leipzig turned the match against FC Augsburg, FC Schalke 04 has to settle for a draw. And Borussia Dortmund were unhurt after Friday’s bust. The voices.

1. FC Koln – Werder Bremen 1-0

Markus Gisdol (Trainer 1. FC Koln): ‘We’re aware that might be the most extraordinary game of the English week. It reads something when you’re over the line and playing against an opponent who seemed far away. Then there is something to lose from the Pletzlich. We made it 1-0 out of our few opportunities, after that we also had the necessary quntchen Gluck. We will not be in Koln when the Ttrame starts again. I can only say: stay calm!”

Florian Kohfeldt (Coach Werder Bremen): “We have everything jams to turn the game around. It was a really bad round for a variety of reasons, both for us and for things that were predictably not. But I can tell them that we’re going to fight and that’s not going to go down.’

RB Leipzig v FC Augsburg 3-1

Julian Nagelsmann (coach RB Leipzig): “We deserved and made a good game. We will maintain greed, even if we are not in the chasing role now. I’m glad the boys played well and we played a good role in all three competitions.”

Martin Schmidt (coach FC Augsburg): “We got full Bundesliga power in front of our noses. We defended well for 70 minutes, with dogs, arms and legs. At some point there was a ball in it, that was a sticking point. At some point, it was undefendable. It was a deserved victory.”

Schalke 04 – SC Freiburg 2:2

David Wagner (Schalke coach 04): “It was a really good football game, that wasn’t necessarily to be expected in the last game. It has a bland taste for us, we have given relatively little to the two penalty situations, had more and more chances to score, which is a bit of a feat. The way the guys are was great. It’s not Walt Disney that you always get, you deserved. We’ll take the point with us, now we’ll take a sniff.”

Christian Streich (Trainer SC Freiburg): “Schalke is with go power, go R. Energy. I’m just glad that we’ve put everything in against very strong and very structured Schalkers. Schalke can win, we can make it 3-1 – it was a big game.”

FSV Mainz 05 – Bayer Leverkusen 0:1

Achim Beierlorzer (coach FSV Mainz 05): “I saw a great performance from our team. We played with Leverkusen on eye-catching. We have a lot of really good scoring chances. We deserve the win. Instead, after an indecent ball loss in the aftermath of a counter-attack, we scored the opposite goal.”

Peter Bosz (coach Bayer Leverkusen): “It was a game. There was a lot in it. For example, a bad Bayer Leverkusen in the first H-lfte. We were much better in the second half. The team played very courageously despite the refereeing.”

Bayern Munich vs. VfL Wolfsburg 2-0

Hansi Flick (coach Bayern Munich): “Wolfsburg did very well, it wasn’t our best game. But I’m just proud that the team has grown together to the end of the victory hat and that this team has grown together as a team. The short break is good for everyone. I hope we will have another board on 4 January. On Sunday we will find the time to sit down together – and then we will see how it goes.”

Oliver Glasner (coach VfL Wolfsburg): “It was bitter because the gates fell so sprot. We made it difficult for FC Bayern, defended well and also kept leading forward. In the end, the legs became heavy and the pressure was always. We are taking a lot of positives with us and will be looking at it with full vigour in the new year.

TSG Hoffenheim vs Borussia Dortmund 2-1

Alfred Schreuder (coach TSG Hoffenheim): “I’m very proud of my team. We weren’t brave enough in the first half. Today we have a great chance, Dortmund was mede.”

Lucien Favre (coach Borussia Dortmund): ‘We don’t make our clear scoring chances. We had big and opportunities easy on the 2-0 or 3-0. We shoot when we are to flank and fit, if we are to shoot. It’s stupid sometimes. We are slowly very, very mede. If I didn’t like it, it’s that we play too complicated. We do that too often instead of just playing and just holding the ball.”
