"I don't want to throw out any clichés now," Selke told the Sky microphones after Saturday's 0-6 shellacking, "We were always one step too late. That just wasn't good enough from A to Z. A shitty day for us today."
"We have to apologize to the fans who came along today," he added, "Such a performance just doesn't cut it. I'll take everything they throw at me."
Asked how he planned to deal with the aftermath of the slaughter, Selke then said he would "lock his smartphone in the drawer" and take two days to recover. When it came to accepting his fair share of the responsibility, the Schondorf native was unequivocal.
"Don't get me started on the coaching discussion," Selke noted, keeping with his promise of being glib, "We will work through this calmly and need the experience of Pal and his coaching staff. We stand by the coaching team. Today, we fumbled it away on the pitch."
