The 1: 2 in Berlin was a low blow for the Gladbachers, who say goodbye to the international break with just one point from three games. Gladbach’s coach Adi Hütter emphasized that you shouldn’t be satisfied – and in part it was.
Wasn’t dissatisfied with everything: Adi Hütter.
“First and foremost, it was a very unfortunate defeat,” said Hütter at “DAZN”, looking back on the 2-1 defeat in Berlin. The Austrian emphasized that they “played well”. “We then fell behind due to two individual mistakes.” With regard to the playfulness, the 51-year-old did not want to blame his protégés “anything”, but he complained about the decision-making of his team – both at the last pass and immediately before the 0: 2. “We have to make a tactical foul.”
Jonas Hofmann also criticized the defensive behavior. “We’re four-on-two and we can’t defend it, just watch it,” said the midfielder, noting that the defense was “too naive”. The 29-year-old praised the “strong” opponent, but also attributed the defeat to a lack of ideas at the front. “We combined well, but had insufficiently deep runs. Sometimes a simple solution is required, which we did not find.”
For Herrmann not “everything was bad”
Patrick Herrmann had also seen positive things. “It wasn’t all bad,” said the substitute attacker. The two goals you conceded were “not happy”, but before that you weren’t “not bad at the game”: “We had a lot of possession and were also good in the duels.” But Herrmann also stated that “in the end there was simply not enough. We have to grab our own nose.”
Now it is important to collect yourself during the international break and then to score points in Augsburg. Because one thing is clear, as Hütter said: “If it goes according to the points, we can’t be satisfied. We had a difficult opening program, but despite everything we have to find each other so that we don’t run after the band.”
