Disruption: Marco Kostmann can not stop the negative run of the Arminia at least before. In his debut as an interim coach, Bielefeld had to give up 1: 3 in Cologne.
Nevertheless, the former goalkeeper coach, who was temporarily promoted to the chief coach on Wednesday, drew a positive conclusion: “I was satisfied with the attitude and commitment. We thrown in what we did during the week.” Ultimately, however, it still “hurt because it is only about the points shortly before the end of the season.”
Stefan Ortega Moreno summarized the third defeat in a row and seventh of the last eight games: “We have lost. Ultimately, it’s all about.” It was “balanced game”, Bielefeld had shown a “reasonable performance”. “But in the moments when everything is about, just naive.”
One of these moments offered the only 18-year-old Burak Ince, who had been substituted in the 77th minute to his second Bundesliga mission. Eight minutes later, the youngster had the chance to equalize at the meantime of 1: 2, but Cologne’s Marvin Schwäbe parried. In return, Jan Thielmann decided the game for the 3-1 final score (86th).
“Burak was the second game, we cannot blame it. He is not the guilty for it now,” said Ortega Moreno in front of his teammate. Rather, the result is a reflection of the past few weeks: “We have been doing the shit that we did for a long time,” the German-Spaniard stated. “I could just throw up.”
I’m just not fine. I’m not feeling well for a while.

The visibly emotional goalkeeper also gave an honest insight into the emotional world of the relegation battle. “I’m just not feeling well. I’m not doing well for a long time. It is a strenuous situation. I think it is so every1. “That’s why I try to collect myself. To come down.”
After that, the view is looking back on the coming matchday. At the moment, the penultimate Bielefeld is separating more three points from 16 and Stuttgart in a game. VfB could expand the distance tomorrow (5:30 p.m.) at Hertha. The Arminia also welcomes the Berliner next Saturday (3:30 p.m.).
