Augsburg boss hails Jentzsch
Augsburg coach Jos Luhukay praised goalkeeper Simon Jentzsch for playing through the pain barrier and securing his side a point against Werder Bremen last night. The former 1860 Munich and Wolfsburg keeper, who broke his finger in the 1-0 win at Mainz last weekend, played with his hand tightly bandaged, and his saves towards the end of the game helped the Bundesliga new boys hold on for a 1-1 draw.
"We are so glad that we have him," said Luhukay. "Bremen took control of the game and had many chances, but Simon Jentzsch saved us this point. We have got to be happy that we did not lose this game."
Bremen coach Thomas Schaaf was left to rue a host of missed chances. "We really should have won this game given the number of clear chances that we created," he said. "We have got to work on that."
Claudio Pizarro escaped Schaaf's criticism, though, as the Peruvian equalised with his seventh goal of the campaign. "Everybody in the league knows about Claudio Pizarro's quality," he said. "And I am glad that he plays for us."
