Borussia Monchengladbach manager Marco Rose has shared his excitement with the draw that his team have been handed in Thursday’s Champions League group stage draw.
The German club were in pot four for the draw and were drawn into group B alongside 13 time Champions League winners Real Madrid, three time winners Inter and Ukrainian powerhouses Shakhtar Donetsk.
“I think it’s a real Champions League group. Inter and Real Madrid are two glorious clubs with which we measured ourselves up against in the past, they remind us of our glories of the past,” he explained following the draw, as quoted by Italian news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb.
“We can’t wait to face them and compete against teams of this level but now we have to concentrate on the next league matches.”
Borussia Monchengladbach, who Rose has been in charge of since the Summer of 2019, have not made the start they would have hoped for in the league this season. They have failed to win either of their opening two Bundesliga matches and have picked up just a single point from a possible six.
Die Fohlen finished in fourth place last season in Germany’s top flight and are one time Champions League finalists. They reached the Champions League final back in thr 1976/77 final but lost out to Liverpool.
