Of course, Young Boys can still qualify for the Europa League, and they already beat us [in Bern]. So it’s a big game for them, particularly, on Wednesday night?
“Yes, they are under pressure, more than we are. Result-wise, we are not under pressure, but our ethos is to win games, and we want to play in a way that we still dominate the game. In the end, it’s about winning. It’s not about just playing nice football or intensive football. It’s about winning. So again, the players who will play, they will want to win the game, and maybe then, in a way, also make up for the defeat in the first round [of games].”
And David Wagner is somebody you know, I guess…
“Yes, of course. We know each other well. We worked together in Hoffenheim in 2009/10, I think, when he was the Under-23s coach at Hoffenheim. I brought him to the club when I was the head coach. So, since then, we have always been in contact. We played a friendly game in pre-season some three or four years ago in Austria, when he was head coach at Huddersfield, and, of course, I’ve followed the development at Young Boys, when he became the new head coach at Young Boys. I know they are struggling with regard to their results. They are fourth in the league, with the worst average points in nine years. So I think he’s a little bit under pressure, I can presume, in the league. But on the other hand, it is Champions League and it’s a different competition.”
