“The pressure we’re feeling is very positive” - Niko Kovac’s key quotes ahead of Dortmund trip
Niko Kovac insists his players are handling the pressure well ahead of Sunday’s tough trip to fellow European hopefuls Borussia Dortmund.
Head coach Niko Kovac on…
… personnel: “We have 25 players available for the game. Apart from Omar Mascarell, who is still carrying an injury, everyone else is fit. Prince Boateng has recovered from a cold and has been training the entire week.”
… Eintracht’s upcoming opponents: “The mood in the Dortmund camp can’t be that great after the defeat to Salzburg, but that game’s in the past. Only the next game is important. I’m sure we’ll face a different BVB to the one that lost on Thursday. They want to qualify for the Champions League, after all.”
… the Eagles’ approach against Dortmund: “We need to be proactive and take the game to BVB. We’ll only be in with a chance of getting a good result if we give it our all from the first minute to the last.
… pressure on the team: “We’re always under pressure, but the pressure we’re feeling at the moment is very positive. We have a chance to achieve something we weren’t expecting at the beginning of the season.”
