Sowislo: “We Need To Start Winning Games We Dominate”12 February 2018
- Skipper calls for team mates to end poor run of form
- FCM now only won one of last five games
- Says forwards need to start finishing chances
Club captain Marius Sowislo today gave his thoughts on FCM’s current poor run of form as the fall out from Saturday’s defeat to Paderborn continues. FCM are currently in a vein of form that means that the 3. Liga leaders have only won one of their last five games stretching back to before the winter break, and Sowislo says that the team now need to do everything they can to rediscover their winning form and set themselves back on track for the 3. Liga title and a place in next season’s 2. Bundesliga. The 35 year old club captain also gave his thoughts on the rumours that he was about to be offered a new two year deal by FCM with his contract having less than 18 months to run.
The 35 year old played the full 90 minutes on Saturday as FCM slipped to a 1-0 defeat at the MDCC Arena against Paderborn thanks to Koen van der Biezen. It was a defeat that meant FCM’s last win at the MDCC Arena was against Bremen II back at the beginning of December, and Sowislo went on to say that it simply wasn’t good enough from the team at the minute.
10.02.18, 18:00, Marius Sowislo: “I’m not exempting myself from this criticism because I haven’t performed as well as I can do, but we have to accept that we’ve not been good enough for a while, especially at home where we’ve slipped up a couple of times recently. We are frustrated at the minute and of course we need to channel that frustration and put it into a performance where we go on to win games of football again. The frustrating thing is that we have dominated games and created an awful lot of chances that on another day the forwards would take but we now need to win the games we are dominating especially as Unterhaching are breathing down our necks now. It’s not just down to the forwards because we all share the burden of scoring goals but when you create a lot of chances you would hope that the forwards with the quality we have here would take those chances.
The skipper would then go on to talk about the rumours that he was about to be offered a new contract that would last until June 2020 and further extend his stay at the MDCC Arena.
10.02.18, 18:10, Marius Sowislo: “It is great to hear things like this about yourself because it means that the work you are doing is valued. I have been here quite a long time now and to still be playing regular football shows that the hard work I’m putting in is paying off. It would be brilliant to be able to captain this club into a 2. Bundesliga campaign and who knows what else if it is another two years and hopefully the rumours are true and that deal really is incoming.”
