Wolfsburg head coach Dieter Hecking says the Germans were “unlucky” in defeat to Manchester United, and described the winning goal as “sh*t”.
Manchester United came from a goal down to beat Wolfsburg at Old Trafford on Wednesday, securing their first win back in the Champions League group stages.
The German were more than worthy opponents however, and head coach Hecking bemoaned a lack of luck after watching his side fall to a “sh*t goal” from United defender Chris Smalling.
“I think it was a penalty but that we were unlucky there,” Hecking said. “And I thought the second goal was unlucky – as we say in Germany, a ‘sh*t goal’ – but then we were on top again and really could and perhaps should have scored again.
“In the 84th minute there was a foul on Julian Draxler that really should have been another yellow card (for Morgan Schneiderlin), so once again we just lacked that bit of luck at the end. But I’m optimistic we can build on this strong performance.”
