Leipzig – Glasgow: German is annoyed with this statement before the Europa League

Is Leipzig coach Domenico Tedesco (36) really serious?

At the press conference ahead of tonight’s return semi-final at the Glasgow Rangers, the RB manager shook their heads at the reporters in attendance. On Stammplatz, BILD’s daily football podcast, Leipzig journalist Yvonne Gabriel talks about the situation. “Tedesco said his team had nothing to lose. Even if he were to lose all his games now, it was a super super good season.”

No title from probably two finals + no Champions League qualification = one super-super-good season?

Very few RB fans should understand this German account! The coach justifies his assertion with the difficult initial situation. “We have nothing to lose considering where we were in December.” What sounds like a bad joke should ease the team’s extreme pressure. Why: Leipzig’s form curve showed after defeats to Union and Gladbach and tough performance in the 1-0 first leg win against Rangers.

RB journalist Yvonne Gabriel also doesn’t believe Leipzig would be satisfied despite losing streak. “I’m not going with you. Even after the weak first part of the season, the managers have repeatedly stressed that the goal is to qualify for the Champions League. If it doesn’t work, it can’t have been a super-super-good season.”

In the podcast, Gabriel also reveals how RB wants to make it to the finals tonight.
