Poulsen: "It was an incredible team performance"

We hear from Ralph Hasenhüttl, Yussuf Poulsen and Marcel Sabitzer & Co. after the Europa League win away to SSC Napoli.

Ralph Hasenhüttl

"It was a great away performance. Napoli are a quality side with the ball, but we were very disciplined and intelligent in our defensive play. I think we deserved to win, and by two goals too. We ought to have opened the scoring really. We wasted a number of decent chances, but we hit back clinically."

Marcel Sabitzer

"It was a great performance and we continued to push forward even after going behind. We were determined to score an away goal, and we ended up with three! It puts us in a very good position for the return leg."

Yussuf Poulsen

"It was an incredible team performance, though we ought to have been ahead at half time. We weren't effective enough in the final third, but we improved after going behind and got the win."

Peter Gulácsi

"We've only done half the job. We still have a very tricky second leg to come. The next league game against Eintracht Frankfurt is what matters now though. We haven't achieved anything yet, so it's no time for celebrations, but it's obviously nice to have won our last two away games with some great team performances."

Willi Orban

"We're very happy with the result and in particular with the way we played. However, there were one or two situations were we should have done better. Still, it's a great feeling to take a 3-1 win back home and we're looking forward to the second leg."

Konrad Laimer

"Despite the result, we can't afford to rest on our laurels. Napoli are a quality side and we need to go into the return leg with the same level of concentration. We're in a good position, but there are still 90 minutes to go."
