Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder is disappointed with his side’s performance against Manchester City.

Gladbach

were defeated in their Wednesday Champions League match against

Manchester City

with a 2-0 result.

Marco Rose

’s team spent the majority of the game in their own half and Manchester City scored the opener with a

Bernardo Silva

header in the 29th minute. Gladbach’s lack of composure on the ball continued in the second half and

Gabriel Jesus

managed to double the Citizens’ lead in the 65th minute. In a post-match interview,

Florian Neuhaus

criticized his team’s performance and the lack of aggression in their game.

“We wanted to be courageous with our limited chances and I felt we did that well at times,"

Neuhaus told DAZN.

"City played with a very high line and if we’d been better with the final ball in behind, there might have been more in it for us. We have to be braver in the second leg.

“Manchester City were really good in possession, which meant we did a lot of running tonight. We had the odd chance in transition here and there but didn’t execute them cleanly.”
