Speaking ahead of Saturday’s Revierderby against Borussia Dortmund, Schalke head coach David Wagner discusses the importance of the fixture and the preparation that goes into it.
“I am extremely excited for it. We can’t wait for the derby to start,” said Wagner. “The derby is independent of everything that has happened in the days and weeks prior to it. Schalke are a difficult opponent for Dortmund, so it’ll be unpleasant for them to come here and play us.”
