Ralf Rangnick on ...
...The Europa League Draw
• "It’s a difficult Europa League group but also a very interesting one – this is the reason why we wanted to qualify! The draw could have hardly been better for us. We’re really looking forward to our games. However, right now, it’s important that we are successful in the two upcoming games at the Red Bull Arena.”
…The Match against Düsseldorf
• "We not only want to win on Sunday, we have to after the opening-day defeat in Dortmund. We must therefore set up well, both tactically and physically. It is also a necessity that we organize the defense better – I don’t want to concede.”
... The Team’s Development
• "It’s important to play offensively. We have to put pressure on, get enough players into the opposition’s box and create chances. We need a sense of flow when going forward and we know that we are not yet at full throttle.”
