Nassim Boujellab: I knew straight away it was going top corner

The Knappen won their last official preseason friendly on Saturday with a convincing performance against neighbours VfL Bochum. One day later, the team beat the U23s 4-1 in an internal friendly. Nassim Boujelab scored the first goal of the 3-0 win against Bochum – a delightful strike from the edge of the area.


David Wagner: I liked our intensity

David Wagner is pleased about how the training camp in Herzlake is going, including the team’s performance in the first friendly of the season against VfL Osnabrück. “During this first week we have managed to put into practice everything that we discussed beforehand,” said the head coach. As the camp comes to an end, the players have had to continue to push themselves as far as possible. “The final session with Werner Leuthard was once again very tough,” said the 48 year old.

David Wagner: We need to dust ourselves down and improve quickly

Both head coaches gave their thoughts after the 96th Revierderby – albeit not in the normal fashion. Instead of the traditional post-match press conference, they both spoke to journalists online. Daniel Caligiuri and Weston McKennie were also interviewed after the derby defeat.


David Wagner: You need to do everything right against them, not just a few things

David Wagner: It makes the players even hungrier

04 days after the 120 intense minutes in the round of 16 of the DFB-Pokal against Hertha BSC, FC Schalke 04 will be challenged again on Saturday. In the second home game of the week, SC Paderborn will pay a visit to the VELTINS-Arena from 3.30 p.m. Despite the wear and tear after playing two games so close together, the Royal Blues want to draw one thing from the 3-2 success after extra time against Hertha: self-confidence for the upcoming games.
