Manprit Sarkaria summed it up after the 0-1 defeat against Rakow in the Europa League. “It’s a defeat that makes me really excited,” says the 27-year-old, probably speaking for everyone who is well disposed towards SK Sturm. The defeat was deserved, the Poles were simply better that evening. There’s nothing to sugarcoat there. You don’t want that with black and white people either. “We will analyze this game just like any other. And we will – as we always do – do a large, detailed analysis at the end of the year,” says sports director Andreas Schicker and continues: “Just so that it is clear: we will continue on our path. We didn’t play a good game and we’re all really disappointed. But that doesn’t mean we’re going to knock everything down or talk bad things.”
