"

Also Julian Nagelsmann found again words of praise for the attitude of his team: "We have carried the greed from the game against Zenit." The 32-year-old was not impressed by the fact that the Red Bulls against Berlin – four goals back and forth – were far from being as dominant and light-footed as they were against Wolfsburg, Mainz and St. Peterburg He was very greasy, the opponent was active with many legs in front of goal, so I do not care if we win with a fine or a coarse blade.
