Daniel Caligiuri: The red card was the turning point

All four interviewees agreed that the red card was the key moment in the match, although some felt that the situation was slightly controversial. Both head coaches agreed that Gladbach still deserved the victory though. Daniel Caligiuri and Mark Uth also gave their opinions to schalke04.de.

Domenico Tedesco:

Both teams cancelled each other out in the first half. We tried a lot, but didn’t create enough chances. We have to start doing that.

Mark Uth had a great chance at the start of the second half. The red card decided the game for me – we found it very hard after that. Gladbach deserved the win after Alex’s dismissal. It’s tiresome to talk about refereeing mistakes and it’d also be disrespectful to Gladbach. We didn’t lose the game because of that one moment. For me there have been a lot of moments like this during the season, which isn’t great for us.

Dieter Hecking:

Well done to my team. We played very well in the first half and allowed them no chances. We then had a good phase, in which we could have scored. After that came a period of the game which frustrated me. We let Schalke play on the counter and picked up several silly bookings. The game could have gone their way at that point. The second half was better and we took our chances once they had a man sent off. Our second goal was simply brilliant. I’m happy with my team’s performance.

Daniel Caligiuri:

The red card was unfortunately the turning point in the match. The Gladbach free-kick had been brought forward by around ten meters. We then suffered from the unfortunate situation where you can easily be given a red card. You have already seen so far this season that Gladbach are technically strong. We proved today that we have a lot of mental strength and we have made progress since the Hinrunde, even if you suffer defeats such as today. We are all willing that our progress continues. It was a great honour to wear the captain’s armband. Nevertheless, I would’ve liked to have capped this with all three points.

Mark Uth:

We played well in the opening half hour and placed a lot of focus on attack. We should’ve played better in the build-up to the red card. We tried to keep the scoreline goalless after going down to ten men. Gladbach have a lot of quality going forward and we couldn’t contain them for the full 90 minutes. We were not able to make our lives easier in attack as Gladbach enjoyed more possession. Then Christoph Kramer’s shot was deflected in and this was disappointing. However, we have to accept the result.
