Guido Burgstaller: A very hard evening
Guido Burgstaller gave his thoughts shortly after Schalke’s defeat to Manchester City on Tuesday night: “A drubbing like that is hard. It really hurts. We can only apologise to the fans that made the trip. It was a very hard evening for them.”
The striker explained that Schalke wanted to start the game well. “That went well up until the penalty. After that there were just huge holes. Manchester City were a lot better than us. They tore us apart and deserved to win by such a big margin,” said Burgstaller.
Schalke now need to get the defeat out of their heads as quickly as possible. “We carry on on Saturday. We have to get some points against Leipzig. We’re not in a good period at the moment, but we have to roll up our sleeves and carry on fighting!” he added.
