Hoeneß slams shot-less Sinsheimer performance: "I'm pissed off."

By Peter Vice   @ViceytheSS

Despite a great deal of tactical tinkering, hosting TSG 1899 Hoffenheim were unable to record a single shot on target against visitors Mainz in their 0-2 loss on Saturday. 

Head-coach Sebastian Hoeneß made clear afterwards that the performance was not acceptable.

Kraichgauer trainer Sebastian Hoeneß made three changes to his XI prior to kickoff against FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday. When the right side of 4-2-3-1 proved ineffective at the half, he made employed a double substitution at the half.


Nothing worked. Jacob Bruun Larsen hit the side netting at one point in the match. That would be the closest any Sinsheimer would come at goal. Mainz keeper Robin Zentner didn't have to deal with a single shot all afternoon. 

A visibly angry Hoeneß had to answer questions not only about his side's lack of goal-bound efforts after the loss, but also the sloppy passing that played a role in both Nullfünfter goals. 

The TSG trainer didn't mince words. 

"There's not much to analyze," Hoeneß told his interviewer, "We deserved to lose the game. One can lose against Mainz, but not like that. I'm not disappointed, but rather pissed off."
