"It doesn't feel good"
Head coach Marco Rose and players Benjamin Henrichs and Emil Forsberg react to the defeat against Manchester City
RB Leipzig suffered a 7-0 defeat in the Champions League against English champions Manchester City.
Marco Rose, Emil Forsberg and Benjamin Henrichs shared their thoughts after full time.
- "Man City were too good for us today and they more than deserved their win. Of course we don’t want to accept that going forward. We want to continue developing. There were two reasons behind our defeat today. One was our aggression in duels at set pieces and the other was that we didn’t find any solutions against their press when we had possession. In that regard, I also take responsibility because maybe I didn’t give the team enough instructions. We never got into the game in any way. The result is very tough to take."
- "I’ve never been on the end of a 7-0 result in my career before. It’s a tough evening for us. I spoke to the referee again and he told me that he didn’t see a handball, but that the VAR had alerted him, so he went and checked the replay and awarded the penalty. For me it wasn’t a penalty, but when you lose 7-0 it doesn’t need to be spoken about too much."
- "It doesn’t feel good. I don’t want to make any excuses. Manchester City did well on the ball. We just weren’t in it and didn’t have any chance, to be honest. It hurts and we’re sorry to the fans who have travelled with us. We have to put all our focus on the Bundesliga now and deliver there."
