Davy Klaassen helped Werder Bremen salvage a 1-1 draw against Stuttgart in the Bundesliga on Friday but he felt they should have won the game.
Bremen extended their unbeaten run across all competitions to nine matches thanks to their draw with struggling Stuttgart at the Weserstadion, although they had to do it the hard way, with Dutch international Klaassen canceling out Steven Zuber’s early opener.
Despite grabbing his third goal of the season during the contest, Klaassen, who joined Bremen from Everton during the summer, was left frustrated after the match, revealing that the draw felt like a defeat.
“We played a team that only wanted to defend,” Klaassen told the Bremen website. “The early goal meant that that was possible. We didn’t use our chances effectively enough. 1-1 feels like a defeat.”
Klaassen’s views were shared by Bremen coach Florian Kohfeldt, who conceded the early goal played entirely into Stuttgart’s hands.
“The goal played into Stuttgart’s hands,” Kohfeldt admitted. “They stood very deep and we weren’t able to find the means to deal with it.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
