After the sixth defeat in a row at Werder Bremen, the specter of relegation is around. After the 0: 1 against Mainz, the Bremen quarrel with the VAR, which prevented the 1: 1 equalization and coach Florian Kohfeldt explains a dispute with Adam Szalai in a strange way. In the BVB win against Union, a questionable penalty dominates the discussions.
SPOX got the most important voices and reactions from press conferences and from Sky-Interviews for the Wednesday games of the 30th match day summarized.
Florian Kohfeldt (coach Werder Bremen) on …
… the game: “One point would definitely have been possible. It was a game with divided chances. I thought we had better playground equipment. The performance, the effort was good, but it wasn’t good enough to force it to. We have to keep playing with the same amount of effort and then we’ll score again. I am still optimistic even if it will be difficult. We have it in our own hands. Now we will probably have four finals. “
… on the controversial VAR use and the alleged foul on hundredweight: “The ball is free, his hand is not on it. Even when looking at the video images, I don’t see a foul. The VAR should intervene as little as possible. I’m not opening a barrel now. What I would ask you to do: Find it the goal of Cologne against us when Pavlenka was attacked. That was a crystal clear foul. There is no reason to call the video room at the scene today. But I don’t scold anyone. Let the referees be bosses on the field as far as possible, because unfortunately they are not that often at the moment. “
Werder Bremen – Mainz 05: 0: 1
Frank Baumann (Sports Director Werder Bremen) on …
… his mood after the sixth bankruptcy in a row: “It’s pretty shitty. We know it’s going to be very, very difficult, we didn’t score a few games and are now at the bottom. But I am convinced that we will stay in the league.”
… the VAR use in the alleged 1: 1 by Josh Sargent, who, according to the referee Mainz-Keeper, touched Zentner’s hand: “That is not a clear wrong decision. Then I did not understand the point of the video referee and absolutely cannot understand it.”
Robin Zentner (goalkeeper Mainz 05) on the alleged foul on him before Bremen’s 1: 1 was withdrawn: “I think what you don’t see in the picture is that he kicks my right hand before he hits the ball. That’s how I felt it in the game and told the referee directly. Then he looked at it again.”
Bo Svensson (Trainer Mainz 05): “It was an intense game in which we honestly weren’t good in the first half. Nevertheless, we always radiated danger. Bremen were the stronger team in terms of play, but we had more chances to score. Overall, of course, I’m very happy with the win. “
Urs Fischer (trainer Union Berlin): “BVB’s victory is deserved, they had more opportunities. But we also had our moments. If we had been a little more efficient at that, I would have been curious to see how things continue.”
TSG 1899 Hoffenheim – Borussia Mönchengladbach 3-2
Marco Rose (coach Borussia Mönchengladbach): “We wanted to win today and build on our streak of success, but we deservedly lost today. The boys were at their limit in the English week. Unfortunately we couldn’t make up any ground in the table today. We have to work on our performance so that we can do better in the next few games score. “
Pellegrino Matarazzo (coach VfB Stuttgart): “We played a decent first half. Unfortunately we didn’t defend so cleanly at the back. They used their chances, we didn’t. We couldn’t win the game because of the efficiency.”
Oliver Glasner (coach VfL Wolfsburg): “I’m really happy about the win after the two defeats. Our game forward can be seen very well at the moment. We had an outstanding goalkeeper in our ranks today, so I’m very happy with the result today. At this stage of the season it’s not about winning a beauty award, it’s about getting points. “
