“We feel the support”

VfB head coach Pellegrino Matarazzo gives his thoughts on Sunday’s home match against 1. FC Union Berlin (17:30 CEST).

Pellegrino Matarazzo on …

…team news:

“Orel Mangala and Erik Thommy are in contention for Sunday, but Waldemar Anton, Roberto Massimo and Florian Müller aren’t ready yet. Omar Marmoush and Tanguy Coulibaly have knocks, so we’ll have to see if they’re fit enough.”

…having fans in the stadium:

“I’m pleased about everyone who can come to the stadium. Every fan brings energy and drives us on. We feel the support – the more there are the better!”

…opponents Union Berlin:

"Union are awkward opponents for everyone in the league, including us. They’ve only lost one game this season. We’ll do everything we can to focus on our strengths and carry over the energy from the last two games. We’re going to go full pelt.”

…team spirit:

“We’ve fostered a unity and a team spirit. You have principles, talk a lot and body language is also important. We encourage and demand communication within the team. I place a lot of importance on that and we’re progressing well.”
