Bressanone, 21 July 2021 – Here is what Coach Enzo Maresca had to say after our friendly game against Bochum.

“The feelings are good even though it was just a friendly and the result is only relative to right now: what is important is to judge the performance, which was a good one. In the first half we controlled the game, we had some big chances, the team is growing and things are starting to improve.”

“Right now, the objective is to give all the boys some game time. In my view, the performance was very good, we are starting to see the stuff we have been working on come through, so I am happy in that respect. The chances today? I don’t think we’re lacking that hunger for goals, what is crucial is creating goal-scoring situations, of which we had some decent ones without conceding much at all the other way.”

“We pressed really well until the end, which is also the consequence of the work we’ve done recently on the intensity of our press, so the response to that has been excellent. Today, Sohm was brilliant; I think he is the type of profile that can really do that sort of work.”
