Mönchengladbach - UEFA Champions League participants Borussia Mönchengladbach staged their Bundesliga media day on Friday.

The event, used to present new signings, take official photographs and produce media content for use throughout the season, took place at the Foals' home ground, the Borussia Park.bundesliga.com rounds up the highlights...

Gladbach media day: Best bits

1) A new corner king?

New signing Andreas Christensen caught the eye on his first day - check out his #BLCornerKings challenge below! "New signing Christensen is already impressing," reads the tweet below.

If you want to find out more, don't forget to tune in to the official Bundesliga YouTube channel on 4 August when the results will be released.

2) Herrmann tries his luck

Gladbach's flying winger, Patrick Herrmann, however, struggled with the Corner Kings challenge. The German international, who has only recently returned from holiday, netted once from five attempts. It was though, a different story from distance, as the 24-year-old warmed up for the new season by sending one effort unstoppably into the top corner.

3) Up for the challenge

Of course, Gladbach's return to Europe's top table for the first time since 1977/78 was a major talking point at the club's media day. Head coach Lucien Favre, for one, is looking forward to testing his tactical mettle in the UEFA Champions League in 2015/16...

Translation: "We know all about the extra workload from 2012, but we're looking forward to playing in the Champions League. It's a massive achievement for Borussia."

4) Favre calls for patience

While all four of the club's summer signings, Lars Stindl (r.), Nico Elvedi, Andreas Christensen and Josip Drmic took part in the club's media day, Favre cautioned Gladbach fans not too expect too much, too soon. "We need patience," he explained. "Drmic, for example, didn't pay much at all last season at Bayer 04 Leverkusen." Favre also intimated that Stindl will be used in a more defensive role than at previous club Hannover 96.

5) Clowning around

While Yann Sommer was cutting as classy a figure in front of the camera as he usually does between the posts, he had to contend with a rather unwelcome distraction. As the Swiss star posed for his photo, team-mate Tony Jantschke repeatedly jumped up behind the camera, imitating a clown. "You're a really bad clown," was all Sommer had to say to Jantschke on the matter.
