Tedesco: 'We have to get this game out of our heads'
Schalke must get Tuesday's defeat against Manchester City out of their heads as soon as possible, says head coach Domenico Tedesco.

Tuesday's result means Schalke crash out of the Champions League round of 16 after losing 2-10 on aggregate.
"We are naturally disappointed with the result. We actually did well for the first 30-35 minutes. Then they got a penalty, which didn't have to be given. After that we just collapsed," Tedesco said, as quoted by the club, and added:
"To go in 3-0 behind wasn't easy. I then experienced the biggest capitulation during my time as a coach. We wanted to perform a lot better, but were simply outplayed by Mancester City."
"We now have to get this game out of our heads and turn our attentions to Leipzig. One thing is for sure: We will not give up. If we don't believe in ourselves, then who will?," the Schalke coach said.
