Bielefeld (dpa) – After the fifth consecutive defeat was an oath of revelation, Captain Fabian Klos outraged and demanded a ruthless reappraisal of Arminia Bielefeld.
“It doesn’t work like that. We have to cut, that’s the only option, ”said the 32-year-old Klos after the 5-0 defeat at 1. FC Union Berlin:“ It was a disaster from the first to the last second. We got really pissed off, it will hurt longer. Maybe it will help. ‘
The previous four defeats could be explained by East Westphalia. Away twice with one goal difference, plus at home against FC Bayern (1: 4) and Borussia Dortmund (0: 2). However, Saturday showed how difficult the struggle to stay in class will be. Even though Arminia is still in 15th place despite four points from seven games, that would eventually save the day.
It was clear to coach Uwe Neuhaus that the defeat at his old workplace – with seven years in office he is a Union record coach – was not one after which one can return to daily life. “You can lose, but the road has to be good. That wasn’t the case from the first second,” said the 60-year-old. “That was definitely the worst performance since I’ve been here. If it had been possible, it would be. I’ve changed them all. ”Neuhaus was“ at a loss ”about the reasons.
It is positive that Arminia now has 14 days to analyze as they are awaiting an international break. In addition, almost all players are present, as the club has not released five players for trips to risk areas and only the two U21 national players Amos Pieper and Arne Maier are on the way. “We have to use this time to get things done very clearly”, demanded Klos. The top scorer in the 2nd division is still waiting for his first Bundesliga goal.
