The two head coaches deliver their verdict on VfL’s 4-2 victory over ten-man SC Paderborn on Sunday.
After back-to-back defeats at the beginning of the year, VfL Wolfsburg registered their first points of 2020 with a 4-2 win at struggling Paderborn. Wolves head coach Oliver Glasner was thrilled that his side managed to emerge victorious from a tricky encounter with the recently promoted outfit, despite making a slow start to proceedings at the Benteler-Arena.
Oliver Glasner: “We’re really pleased to be taking three points back to Wolfsburg. We were already 1-0 down after their first corner - we could hardly have made things more difficult for ourselves. I’m incredibly pleased that the team kept their chins up, that we fought back immediately and that we then managed to take the lead. We knew that Paderborn, regardless of the scoreline, always give their all and play on the front foot. That’s what they did and I’m happy that we were able to score four goals and go home with three points, which we were desperate to get.”
Steffen Baumgart: “There were two or three situations in the first half that turned the game in a certain direction. The main thing, however, is that we made mistakes. We can’t deny that. In key phases of the game, we weren’t able to do things the way we wanted to. We played well but made mistakes we can’t afford to make - particularly against such a quality team. Wolfsburg were able to capitalise on them.”
