Schubert relishing Man City clash

Borussia MG caretaker coach Andre Schubert says he is looking forward to his team's clash with Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Schubert has guided Gladbach to two consecutive victories since taking over the coaching duties from Lucien Favre, who resigned after the German club started their season with five straight defeats.

The 44 year-old Schubert, who was a youth team coach at the club before being put in temporary charge of the first team, knows a positive result against the English club would go a long way to convincing the club's board to give him the job permanently.

"We're looking forward to the match, it will be a great challenge. We want to try and get something on Wednesday and I am unbeaten against Manchester City," he joked in his pre-match press conference.

"We drew 1-1 against their youth side with our U-23s in the Premier League International Cup most recently. I have taken over the team in the middle of a season and am dependent on the coaching staff and my colleagues.

"You can only be successful in football if everyone pulls together. I am enjoying it a lot at the moment. We have picked ourselves up and kept playing our football. The boys have done excellently so far."
