Jürgen on our biggest issue: you do well to read the entire quote.
"The way we play, and it's ball-orientated defending, I think that's no secret. That means whoever has the ball on the pitch he should face one in an ideal world, two in a perfect world, three players... one has to challenge, win it or lose, but if you lose then the next one is there, picks the ball up and we go from there. So, I've explained it in a very simple way, but that's how it is.
If you don't win the ball there, if you put that much legs on that side where the ball is, and you don't win the ball, players can get out. Yes, then the pitch looks incredibly big and that was obviously the situation we had too often in the last game. We were there, everything was right, three players, and still the Wolves player could get out. So, in one-v-one situations we lost challenges too easy, or didn't tackle, I don't know exactly how to explain it but you know what I mean. You cannot win a football game without winning challenges, it's absolutely not possible, and we drew a football game with not winning a lot. That shows already if we would win more that would be very helpful, and that's what we have to do. My job is to help the boys to bring them in the right spaces where they will have the challenges. But I cannot win challenges for them, that's now not possible. I cannot do that. That's obviously what we're clearly talking about and it's something we have to do, and that will change a lot. Especially now against Brighton, it's really important.
But again, we will not change now the way we play just to knock them constantly down and get yellow or red cards. We never had that. We just want ask ourselves to make this last step into a challenge, block the ball or then the ball is out, fine, there's a throw-in or whatever. But then we are really there more present – that's the idea. If we can do that, against a team who is really playing football, who has ball-playing build-up from the goal-kick, in open play, in all these kind of things, super drilled, two sixes, two 10s, no real striker – there's a striker, of course, but it's not really that he's always in the last line – they're all everywhere and that's where we have to be really aware. There are ways to defend it – other teams did it as well, we found our way as well, we just have to execute it now. It's a basic thing to win challenges and that's why we were talking a little bit about it."
