"It feels amazing to qualify for Europe again!"

Ralph Hasenhüttl, Timo Werner, Diego Demme and Kevin Kampl react to the 6-2 win in Berlin and the resulting Europa League qualification.

ralph hasenhüttl:

  • "We secured European football for ourselves last year in Berlin as well, so it seems we like it here. The team really proved what they're capable of today. No-one doubted that we would win the game once it got underway.

    We wanted to take things into our own hands today and that's exactly the way that we went about things. We played the sort of attacking football that we always strive to. 

    It's always a great feeling to celebrate together with the fans. These are the moments that all our work throughout the year is for. The fact we managed to do it in Berlin is even better. The positive feeling today is no less than last year. We know exactly the sort of effort that is required to be able to play European football and how much you need to invest."

  • It was open game today - and that suits us just fine. It was great to watch. If you blinked at the beginning then you probably would have misssed something big. It was a lot of fun today and I also think that the win was deserved. We played the sort of football today that we've been wanting to show again for a long while now. We're glad that we managed to put into action what we set out to do. It's a great feeling!"

diego demme:

  • "It was a whole club performance and the fans especially supported us amazingly once more. The fact that we were able to repay them with six goals makes it even better! We're obviously very happy to have secured sixth place in the standings.

    Everything clicked today and we capitalised on our chances with ice-cold efficiency. We've had a long season with highs and lows and can be proud of what we've been able to achieve. It's been a brilliant season!"

kevin kampl:

  • "It was a crazy game! We created chance after chance and then utilised them. We've fared very well for our first year taking part in European football. And to qualify for it again in only our second Bundesliga season is unbelievable. Our fans know that. It's great how they celebrated us finishing in sixth."
