Schwarz: “At the risk of repeating myself…”
All the post-match reaction from both coaches following the defeat against Borussia Mönchengladbach
Mainz 1 Borussia Mönchengladbach 3
Sandro Schwarz: “The first half was very tight. There were a lot of battles in the centre of the park and it was evenly matched. We could have made it 2-1 through Karim just before half time. We played well after the break until we conceded. We had periods of pressure but need to do better with counter attacks. We weren’t consistent enough there. The free kick was basically Gladbach’s first chance in the second half and just like last weekend we lost the game in a matter of minutes. At the risk of repeating myself: for the most part, it was a decent game for us but we need to play like that for the full 92, 93 minutes.”
Marco Rose: “First of all, I want to thank everyone for the wonderful reception I got here in Mainz. It was very friendly overall and I like being here because I spent ten great years with Mainz 05. But today it was about getting a result for Mönchengladbach in a Bundesliga match. I think we won because we scored the second goal at the right time. Mainz played with a high tempo and were dynamic like us. The substitution of Breel Embolo was incredibly important for us. It was a difficult game between two teams who fought hard for 90 minutes. We are very happy with the win”.
