"Everyone was at their best, and the reward was a win"

Ralf Rangnick, Marcel Halstenberg, Willi Orban und Yussuf Poulsen gave their thoughts after the 2-0 win against VfB Stuttgart.

RAlf Rangnick:

  • "There's no doubt that that was our best performance of the season. I'm particularly pleased that we got our first clean sheet, which we especially owe to our great work off the ball. It's clear that several of our players are nearing top form. For example, Marcel Sabitzer and Dayot Upamecano gave their best performances of the season today.

    I'm really pleased that Marcel Halstenberg played the full 90 minutes. Everyone game him a standing ovation when he walked in the dressing room after the game. Bravo, Halste!"

Marcel Halstenberg:

  • "It's incredible to be back starting on the pitch with the lads. The boss put his faith in me and I was able to repay him. We had a difficult start but after that it went well for us. We can definitely be satisfied with this result."


willi orban:

  • "We had to stay focussed for the full 90 minutes. We were solid at the back and barely let anything through, while creating a lot of chances up front. It was a well-deserved win."

Yussuf poulsen:

  • "I think that was our best display of the season so far. We played well both up front and at the back, and all played at our best. That's what we can do and we'll get results playing like that."
