The coaches give their assessment following VfL’s defeat to Frankfurt.
The Wolves dominated for large periods of the game, created considerably more chances and yet ended up losing 2-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt. It was clearly not the result VfL boss Oliver Glasner wanted given the course of the match. Here’s what both coaches had to say:
Oliver Glasner: “I’d file today’s defeat in the needless category. We played very well in the first half and had numerous chances, which sadly we didn’t take. One lapse in concentration at the back from a throw-in and suddenly you’re 1-0 down. Nevertheless, we fought back in the second half from a set piece. We pushed after that, but you could see in both teams that the energy levels dropped a bit. We let ourselves be put off our stride a bit during that period and spent too much time complaining about tight refereeing decisions, which all went against us. And then we switched off once at the back, so today’s defeat was needless and tough to take for us.”
Adi Hütter: “Today we managed to give ourselves a real release. I think winning here in Wolfsburg is a strong sign of life, which will certainly do us good. It was absolutely imperative today that we showed a good tactical performance, togetherness and good tackling. We’re delighted with this win and three very important points at this stage.”
