- "Freiburg made life extremely difficult for us. It was a tough afternoon and an intense game for both sides. In the 1st half, we still had Tuesday's game in our legs, but we improved in the 2nd half."
It was important for us to make everything certain today. We've secured Champions League football, reached third in the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal final. The lads can be very proud of themselves. It's a fantastic result!"
- It just feels great knowing we'll play in the Champions League next season. We wanted to share this moment with the fans at home today.
We always change penalty takers - it makes it harder for the goalkeeper to guess the direction the ball will go in. I was certain I would score. What a fantastic evening!"
- We played brilliantly. Freiburg's goal threw us off course, but we showed our mental strength and came back to win.
We've secured Champions League football with 3 matchdays to spare. That's amazing. We're unbelievably proud, and there's nothing nicer than celebrating it in front of our fans!"
- "Freiburg played well and made themselves tough opponents, but we managed to overcome them. Their goal was interesting - the referee blew very early and I didn't hear the whistle. I didn't know what was going on and then the ball flew in.
Nonetheless, it doesn't matter now. We're back in the Champions League. We're a hungry team, a hungry club, and we've deserved this based on our performances. What a brilliant day for Leipzig! I'm proud to be a part of it."
