Gung-ho Wendt ready to tackle Frankfurt head on

Cologne - Borussia Mönchengladbach left-back Oscar Wendt has called on his team to continue their fine run of form when they take on Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday evening.

'We don’t need to hide'

The Foals were bottom of the Bundesliga until recently, but now appear to be on the mend thanks to a stirring three-match winning run.

'Focus on our games'

The benchmark set following a trio of expressive and gallant wins over FC Augsburg, VfB Stuttgart and VfL Wolfsburg, it is hardly surprising that five-time Bundesliga winners Gladbach are breathing such confident air. The Foals have been unrecognisable from the side that suffered a succession of limp defeats earlier in the campaign, and Wendt, for one, cannot wait to get back on the horse now the international break is over.

"I think international breaks are more important for the head than the body," he opined, himself having been overlooked for Sweden's final UEFA EURO 2016 qualifiers. "Obviously it’s a strain to play every three days, but it's no problem for me. I think every footballer would rather play than train. That's why we're going to make the most of playing in all three competitions in the coming weeks […] There's no point complaining about injuries. We just have to focus on preparing for our games."
