Bundesliga news: International break was not a momentum killer admits Schalke 04 winger Tobias Mohr

FC Schalke 04 star Tobias Mohr has assured that the international break did not break the club's momentum as they aim to beat Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

The Royal Blues have endured a difficult start to their Bundesliga campaign, having secured one win from seven games. That run has left the newly promoted side 14th in the table and one point clear of the bottom three. 

Mohr remains confident despite their precarious position and has emphasised how motivated Schalke are to keep themselves in the German top flight.

"A break like this is never an inconvenience. You can work individually during the week and train more intensively," said Mohr, as quoted by the club's official website.

"Of course, we want to pick up more points so we can achieve our goal of staying in the division."

The 27-year-old also spoke highly of Schalke's team cohesion and spirit, adding: "Those who don't play that often are still highly motivated and they offer the other members of the team important advice. We're a tight-knit group."

Schalke's next opponents, Augsburg, will be flying high after their win over Bayern Munich before the international break, but Mohr made it clear that 04 will be eyeing three points.

"Of course they will arrive full of confidence, but we back our own ability, too," he said.

"Apart from the game against Union, we've put in good performances at home and we want to pick up all three points on Sunday."
