Wendt: It’s sad Mönchengladbach supporters cannot watch Man City match

Borussia Mönchengladbach defender Oscar Wendt admits it is a crying shame his side will have little representation at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Champions League clash with Manchester City was postponed from Tuesday to Wednesday because of torrential rain and subsequently a badly waterlogged pitch, meaning a high number of Gladbach fans will be absent for the rescheduled encounter.

"It's hard for us because we prepared for this match, but it's harder for our supporters because they had a long journey here and bought their tickets," said the Swedish left-back.

"Ninety per cent of our supporters have to leave tomorrow so they can't see the game.

"It's not our decision, we don't have any influence, so we have to take it.

"We are sad that our supporters probably can't see the game, now we have to go back to the hotel and focus on the match tomorrow."
