“We maintained our composure”

The thoughts of the coaches following VfL Wolfsburg's 2-2 draw with Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Bruno Labbadia’s VfL side fell behind twice during their stalemate with Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday, but were able to hit back each time. The Green-Whites could even have won it in the closing stages but just could not find the final touch, leaving the Wolves' head coach frustrated once again with two more points dropped.

"Showed great character"

Bruno Labbadia: “It was a very intensive game where we constantly had to watch out for Gladbach on the counter, which we failed to do for their two goals. But those two moments also showed their quality. They can create counter-attacks relatively easily but then they were very clinical in the finish. In the latter stages we were closer to getting the winner. The team had to cope with two setbacks and they did that brilliantly. They always maintained their composure and control of the game. Overall I feel we’ve not got the points we deserved from the last two games, but nevertheless we showed great character against a very strong side.”

Dieter Hecking: “All things considered I think a draw was a fair result. It was an intensive game, as expected, and we knew that Wolfsburg are much better than last season. I have to admit that when we were 2-1 up I thought we had the match in our grasp. It’s frustrating that we then made a mistake in our build-up play and gave Wolfsburg the chance to show their qualities again. We didn’t venture forward as much after that so I can live with the point.”
