… training this week
- “We won the game at the weekend, but we didn’t perform the way we wanted to on the pitch. We have to work on that, especially before Leverkusen, who are a strong opponent at the moment.
Today there was a good sharpness in training, which we also need at the weekend. It gives me a positive feeling.”
