''Freiburg deserved the win with the way they fought as a team,'' said Marco Rose to Sky, adding: ''We had to work extremely hard to create chances and score a goal.''

''After going down 1-0, we had a big chance to equalise. After going down 2-0, we managed to get back in the game and had chances to draw level at 2-2,'' said the head coach. ''It's always tough playing in Freiburg. If you're not able to score an easy goal, it gets tough, and that's why we lost 2-1.'' He had the following words to say about the tactical side of things: ''Our idea was one which worked really well against SC Freiburg's formation. We just have to perfect a few routines and get to grips with a few fundamentals. In some phases our passing tempo was too slow, we took too many touches and tried to force the issue too often. These are concrete issues which we'll have to find solutions to.'' (tl)
