Keller happy with Schalke

It was certainly not the best game Jens Keller will have seen this season at Borussia M?nchengladbach this past weekend. But it ended in victory ? and that is what counts in the battle for fourth place.

At the post-match press conference the Schalke coach agreed that the Royal Blues were fortunate to win after 90 hard-fought minutes with chances for both sides.

“We were fortunate to win, but we’ve played better this season and lost,”  said Keller.

?We’re therefore very happy to win the game thanks to Julian Draxler’s late goal. My players made a number of technical errors, but they battled hard, kept things tight and limited Gladbach to just a few counterattacks.

?We knew they had to come at us towards the end to keep their chance of a European place alive and that would open up the spaces for us. Fortunately, we were able to exploit that.”
