Borussia Monchengladbach was humiliated on Saturday 5-1 by Bayern Munich and a few days later defender Matthias Ginter is ready to speak.

Javi Martinez started things quickly as he scored for Bayern Munich in the second minute of play. Then it was just goal behind the goal, thanks to Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski, and Serge Gnabry.

And that’s how the Bavarians humiliated Borussia Monchengladbach 5-1.

A few days later after this defeat, Gladbach’s defender Matthias Ginter is ready to speak and try to explain what happened.

“Yeah, unfortunately, we allowed two chances and Yann Sommer was able to save. From the resulting corner, we went 1-0 down,” he explained to the team’s official website.

“We weren’t really in the game from the start and we made some mistakes that Bayern were ice-cold in punishing. Unfortunately, we didn’t really make it difficult for them.”

“We made too many mistakes and made it too easy for Bayern. They created a lot of chances after they went 3-1 up and deserved to win in the end,” he explained.

“The fact that we’ve conceded 11 goals in the last three home games is particularly annoying for us.”

Weston McKennie talks about his accelerated development at Schalke

USA international Weston McKennie talks about his Schalke career and the progress he's made over the past two years.

“We know that that’s too many and that we need to work on it. The season isn’t over yet, and we’ve got games ahead of us and a lot of chances to achieve our goal,” he added.

“It’s now about keeping our heads up and looking forward. We can’t give up now, we have to continue working hard.”

Monchengladbach has been amazing almost all season, reaching the second position for a while, but after the weekend’s result, the team is in the fourth position with 43 points, thanks to 13 victories, four draws, and seven defeats.

“We’ve conceded too many goals in the last few games, which is why it’s even more important to get our defensive stability back, that’s what’s made us so strong in the league up to now,” he continued.

“There’s always pressure from other teams. I think we should take it game by game and not look at other teams or the table too much. That’s what we’ll continue to do. We need to put in better performances and pick up points. I’m convinced that we have the quality to put in better performances.”
