RB Leipzig: Coach discussion: Tedesco distracts himself with work

RB Leipzig coach Domenico Tedesco does not want to get involved in the discussion about his job. "That's part of the game. I try to distract myself with work to prepare for the game. I'm looking forward to the English weeks. I have a hard time influencing everything else," said the 36-year-old.

Leipzig will meet the Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on September 6 (9 p.m. / DAZN) and want to rehabilitate themselves there for the 0: 4 at Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga.

After the desolate performance in the Bundesliga on Saturday evening, Tedesco had denied his team's mentality. Two days later he defended her. "We don't need to train mentality, we don't need to train willingness to run. That's all there," assured the coach. His statements were only related to the game at Eintracht.

"Of course there are people who are dissatisfied"

The coach can partially understand the questions about his future. "After a game like this, it's clear that there are people who are dissatisfied. And I'm the first," said Tedesco. The game was worked up and discussed with the team council. For Tedesco it will be the first game in the Champions League since the 0: 7 with Schalke 04 in March 2019 at Manchester City: "We really deserved a big hit."

For RB captain Peter Gulacsi, the performance in Frankfurt was a slip. The team will "show a different face" against Donetsk. "Frankfurt is not our goal, we will show that," said the 32-year-old goalkeeper. Don't worry, you just have to do things differently.

The expected lineups:

RB Leipzig: Gulacsi - Simakan, Orban, Gvardiol - Laimer, Schlager, Kampl, Halstenberg - Forsberg - Nkunku, Werner

Schachtjor Donetsk: Trubin - Mychajlytschenko, Krywzow, Matwijenko, Taylor - Sudakow, Stepanenko - Mudryk, Bondarenko, Petryak - Sikan

Referee: Joao Pinheiro (Portugal)
