Red sinner Rieder: "Would have accused me of something for a long time"

Austria Klagenfurt lost 2:4 at Austria Lustenau (match report >>>) and can still celebrate. The entry into the master group was successful, despite a wild initial phase.

In the fourth minute of the game, the Klagenfurt team saw a red card from Florian Rieder. Previously, Thorsten Mahrer received a yellow card within the first minute of the game.

Klagenfurt midfielder Rieder, who has been in good form lately, put his team outnumbered early on by attacking Tiefenbach too hard and had to vacate the field.

In an interview with “Sky”, Rieder said: “I am very grateful that Sturm Graz was able to win against WSG Tirol (2-0). I played for Tirol myself, which is why I feel a bit sorry for them, but I I’m still very happy that we did it.”

Rieder: “I’m really glad that everything went well”

“I have mixed feelings about the red card. I would have blamed myself for a long time if we hadn’t gotten it today. I would rack my brains, so I’m really happy that everything went well,” said Rieder .

The culprit explained the foul as follows: “Of course I hit him, but it didn’t feel wild for me in the game. I think it was my first red card. I’m the last one who wants to hurt a player. Me after four Giving the red card minutes, which turns the whole game upside down, is a very tough decision.”

However, the joy of the ticket for the championship group outweighs the Klagenfurter: “Moving into the championship group is the most important thing. It’s something unbelievable for the club. I think we’re in the bottom third as far as the budget is concerned, which is why this is a huge success . We deserve it.”

Pacult petrified after yellow-red

The head coach of the Klagenfurt also delivered a curious moment in the game. Peter Pacult argued with the referee several times and was cautioned in the 28th minute when the score was 0:1 by the Carinthians. In the 36th minute, Pacult moved out of his coaching zone and eventually saw the red card.

However, instead of making his way to the stands, the Viennese stood petrified and made no move to leave the coaching zone for a long time.

Pacult analyzed the game: “Of course we had imagined it differently. If you get a yellow card after 20 seconds and a red card after two minutes, then you already know how the game will continue. Nevertheless: Compliments to the team, even if we lost 4:2. We put ourselves in a good position before the game and it’s all the better that we’re in the top six now. It was sensational that we managed to do that last year.”

Pacult appeals to Klagenfurt fans

“I hope that this success will now also be noticeable in the number of spectators, because now the big teams like Red Bull Salzburg, Rapid Vienna, Sturm Graz, Austria Vienna and LASK are coming. I hope that what the team has achieved here , which is now also reflected in the number of viewers.”

The Klagenfurt coach describes the conversation after the game with referee Sebastian Gieshamer as “very nice”. “He calmly explained everything. There were sentences that made me happy because certain things weren’t what they really looked like.”

Targeting international places

Pacult has already declared the fight for the international tickets to be on: “I don’t even know the results of the other teams, but it must also be the goal to play for international places. We cannot be satisfied with being sixth and secured for the 23/34 season are. The sporting ambition must be such that we want to attack and perform accordingly.”
