Annoyed Dost says Frankfurt "deserved the win more"

By Peter Vice

An aggravated Bas Dost faced the SkySports cameras following his side's disappointing 1-1 draw with SV Werder Bremen.

"The result didn't match the game," an annoyed Bas Dost told journalists moments after his Adler had to settle for a single point against Florian Kohfeldt's Hanseaten, "In the end, we deserved the win more."


Luck simply wasn't on the side of Adi Hütter's men in a round six encounter they held high hopes of attaining three points from. Seventy-two percent possession and a three-fold higher xG proved insufficient for a squad desperately needing to bounce back following a 0-5 defeat to German giants FC Bayern München in the previous round.

A brilliant 34th-minute goal by Daichi Kamada, coming after an excellent effort from André Silva, was disallowed after a VAR ruling found the SGE a offside by a fraction. Six minutes after the restart, a Bremen tally "came out of nowhere" in the words of the Eintracht striker.

While Dost initially complained that Josh Sargent's opener unfairly came courtesy of a foul perpetrated on him by Bremen's Marco Friedl. After reviewing the tape together with a television reporter, however, the Dutchman conceded that Friedl's actions didn't merit a free-kick. "Yeah, you're right," Dost told the contrarian interviewer after the game.

The 31-year-old striker remained adamant that Frankfurt were worthy of the result. He referenced how hard the team fought, his own hit of the post in the 69th, and the near-own goal from Niklas Moisander on Amin Younes' cross deep into injury time.

"We gave everything we had," Dost concluded, "I feel completely dead now."
