Domenico Tedesco:

“In the first 20 minutes, we played with courage and with determination. We stuck to our plan initially but lost a bit of momentum towards half-time. In the first 20 minutes, we played with courage and with determination. We stuck to our plan initially but lost a bit of momentum towards half-time. We made some adjustments in the second half and we regained our momentum. We were excellent for the rest of the match. I don’t think it’s possible to play much better against Freiburg than we did. Our substitutes gave us a boost.”

Christian Streich:

First of all, congratulations to Schalke. We worked hard and were solid defensively but couldn’t cause Schalke problems. Then, the referee made the decisions he made and we lost. I don’t have anything to say about the red card. I think everyone in the stadium knew what happened. Nils Petersen had no idea he was on a yellow card.
