The best sayings from the SC Freiburg coach

Christian Streich has been the coach of SC Freiburg since December 2011.

On the occasion of the round of 16 first leg at Juventus Turin in the Europa League, SPOX shows the best sayings of the Breisgau institution.

Freiburg had qualified directly for the round of 16 as group winners. The sports club thus survived the group stage for the first time in its history, in which it failed when it made its debut on the European stage in the 2013/14 season.
