Baku: "It's really disappointing"
The full post-match quotes from Mainz' 1-1 draw with Union Berlin.
Mainz went into this match wanting to make amends for their crushing defeat at the hands of RB Leipzig last week, but their endeavour was only partially successful, claiming a 1-1 draw at Union Berlin. Despite a good opening phase in which the Zerofivers scored, Union equalised, and despite having the man advantage for the second half, Mainz were not able to find a winner. The full quotes from the match are below:
Post-Match Quotes from Berlin
Alexander Hack: “It feels like we dropped two points. I think that we did too little with our extra man, and we were too slow on the ball. When you have the extra man, you need to move the ball faster in possession, and we didn’t manage to do that. We had too many bad passes, and Union was better prepared for that. So of course it’s difficult.”
Kunde Malong: "We're disappointed because we were ahead and had a man advantage. We had a lot of possession, but not enough shots. We don't have much time to analyse things as our next game is in two days. We need to play with the right mentality and improve."
Flo Müller: "You need to a win a game when the other team has ten men for 50 minutes. We wanted to give our all and get another goal, so we're frustrated. You could see how important how the game was today by the fight shown. We want to play well on Saturday in our next home game against Hoffenheim."
Ridle Baku: "We're really frustrated. We had an extra man in the second half and couldn't find a goal. We were desperate to win this game against our direct rivals in the table. Our final pass hasn't been there in the past few weeks. It's disappointing, but we have to look ahead now and improve against Hoffenheim. We want all three points against them."
