The coaches give their thoughts on VfL’s 2-1 win over Eintracht.
A fierce spell of pressure in the closing stages helped the Green-and-Whites come from behind to hand Frankfurt their first defeat in five games. While Eintracht head coach Adi Hütter regretted his side’s lack of aggression in decisive situations, his VfL counterpart Oliver Glasner was “very happy” with his charges and praised their “fantastic response” after conceding the opening goal.
Oliver Glasner: “I’m very happy with the win over Frankfurt and with our performance. There was so much going on in that game and it was a really, really good display from us in the first half. We didn’t score and then we were unfortunate to go 1-0 down from a penalty. The team’s response was fantastic. We increased the intensity, attacked and forced an equaliser with a great move down the right. Then we got another goal thanks to another good move. The pass from Xaver [Schlager] and the run and shot from Wout [Weghorst] were brilliant. I know how hard it is to beat Frankfurt, so my team deserve credit for their performance today.”
Adi Hütter: “We’re all very frustrated and disappointed that we weren’t able to win. The lead did us a lot of good and was by no means undeserved after Filip Kostic’s golden opportunity beforehand. We need to try and defend with greater conviction. It wouldn’t have been undeserved if we’d have taken all three points today.”
