Davie Selke: “Relegation battles aren’t nice and our current situation is extremely annoying. We need to try to get out of it as quickly as possible. But we don’t need to talk about the coach every week. It lies on us, not him. He’s a really good coach; he sets us up well and motivates us. We need to focus on playing as a team and beating the teams around us in the table. It’s really important to stay positive.”
Niklas Moisander: “It’s a really disappointing situation to be in. We now have an extremely important few weeks ahead of us. Time is running out. Frankfurt have also had lots of ups and downs this season. We need to pick up points against them. No one believes in us, but we will do it!
Ömer Toprak: “We’re in a terrible situation and we need to pick up points, no matter how. We have to start winning against the teams around us in the table. It’s not about creating lots of chances, but taking the ones we have and winning in any way we can.”
Florian Kohfeldt: “We now have eleven games left and we’re three points away from safety. Despite the defeat, what I’ve seen in training this week makes me really proud. We have a long week of training ahead of us now. I can’t influence what happens elsewhere. We have to win.”
Frank Baumann: “We’re now alone in 17th place and the gap has increased even further today. There are also fewer games remaining. Of course the situation has become even more serious. But, as we’ve always said, there are going to be setbacks, and there will be right up until the end of the season. We’re doing a lot, working really hard and by no means will we lie down. We’re not talking about the coach, but rather how we can help him to get us out of this situation.”
