VfL Wolfsburg winger Julian Draxler has admitted the Bundesliga outfit is struggling from a lack of confidence after suffering yet another defeat on Saturday.
The Wolves slumped to a 3-0 loss at the hands of Draxler's former employers, Schalke 04, following goals from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Johannes Geis and Alessandro Schopf.
It was most certainly a disappointing return to his former stomping ground, compounded by the fact that he was on the receiving end of jeers and taunts from the Schalke fans.
Reflecting on his side's performance and the result, Draxler told DFB.de: "We are unsettled obviously. You don't have a lot of confidence after a run of seven games without a victory.
"It always sounds like such a cliché, but what else can you do? This game is behind us already and we have to focus on the week of training ahead of us."
When asked about the taunts aimed at him by the Schalke fans, he added: "It's not possible to completely block that out, but you still try to make the best out of it.
"It's not a nice feeling to be jeered at when you're returning to your 'home'. You try to be professional about it and just play the game as if it was any other.
"But at the end of the day us football professionals are also just human beings. There is no doubt about the fact that it does get to you a bit."
