A haggard looking Niko Kovac could only reiterate his old talking points – and register a refereeing complaint –
following another disappointing result for Germany’s green company team yesterday.
VfL Wolfsburg trainer Niko Kovac found himself in familiar territory during his post-match Saturday press conference.
Despite the fact that his German Wolves dominated their opponents in statistical categories such as shots-on-goal,
possession, and direct duels, three points could not be obtained. A particularly stinging loss away at 1. FC Union Berlin leaves the Wolves on the wrong side of an early February relegation six-pointer.READ MORE
“We were the better team and had the better chances,” Kovac said at his presser, “The team played sensationally well even if we didn’t get the points. Those are the arguments for us [himself and staff] that speak for us continuing to be able to coach the team.”
“It may have been unlucky, but it was a foul [on Schäfer],” Kovac noted, “I blame the VAR team for not intervening. He [Jenz] has a broken nose and looks like he was hit by a truck. I don’t think it was from the ball. The fact that a corner was awarded is inconceivable.”
