Besides something in this video that is so obvious to notice, if anyone out there is still wondering about what he actually said, here is a rough translation -
Q: Winning eight competitive matches, top of the table - but it was definitely not enjoyable to play against an opponent which focused so much on defending, right? [‘vergnügungssteuerpflichtig’ is the actual word for ‘enjoyable’, which literally means that something is so enjoyable that you have to pay entertainment tax for it..
.I am so done with German tbh; t/n]
A: It was hard work to win. Many of us have imagined that this could be what we would face after our two games of 4:0 - the opponents stayed compact and in the first 10 minutes there were not so many great chances for us. This is just a part of football. We were prepared for this and we knew we could have done better…but today we won anyway. Nine points after three matches, I think you couldn’t wish for much more.
Q: Making 1:0 was really important considering the opponent was so defensive, and it was done through a set-piece. We noticed that now we take lots of short corners. What could be the reason/purpose?
A: It’s good that we made a difference from a short corner. When Shinji delivered that brilliant cross there was a good chance to make a shot on goal. We try to implement two variances: long corner and short corner and other options, if any, for a corner kick…and we are simply very happy that the tactics work so well.
Q: Your goal was important to us but equally important, if not more important, was your tackle against Haraguchi in the first quarter of the hour…
A: That was clear for us defenders or anyone who frequently needs to think as a defender in such situations to prevent dangerous chances for goals - a fast player like Haraguchi can get you caught on the break. I am glad we can deal with it…last time similarly Schmelle did it against Gladbach, when it was still 0:0. It is irrelevant which individual player in our team actually took the defensive action.
Q: Considering what is coming up after the international break, what could we draw from these wins?
A: This season we have plenty to reach for. In the previous matches we managed to bring out our qualities as a team and we built a good basis. Therefore we have confidence for the coming weeks. I hope it helps in the match against Hannover.
I like when he mentioned Schmelle.
