“We dominated the second half”

Read the thoughts of both coaches after the away defeat to Schalke

Schwarz speaks to the press after the disappointing defeat at Schalke

Sandro Schwarz: Congratulations to David! We played two very different halves. Schalke started on top but after about 20-25 minutes we started to play a bit better. We just weren’t precise enough on the counter. We then completely dominated the second half. We found space and then found the equaliser. It’s annoying that we didn’t defend better against Harit’s outstanding solo performance and now we have to drive home empty handed.”

David Wagner (Schalke head coach): “I think we started relatively well. The first half wasn’t brilliant but it was okay. The opening goal was also decent. Were good at getting to the second balls first. The second half was poor. We were erratic and didn’t keep hold of the ball. Mainz deserved their equaliser. The stadium came alive in the last five minutes and luckily a moment of magic from Harit won us the game. I wish Mainz all the best for their next game!”
