"We're happy to have overcome the first hurdle"

All the reaction from Julian Nagelsmann, Lukas Klostermann and Willi Orban after the 3-2 win against VfL Osnabrück.

Julian nagelsmann:

  • "We showed a great attitude throughout the whole game. But ultimately we were lacking a bit of freshness. We need to work on maintaining that over the 90 minutes. We had a tough pre-season and worked on a lot of new things, and you could see on the pitch today that the lads became tired in the second half. We didn't have enoug control throughout, we were a bit wasteful in possession at times. We had much more control in the first half and overall showed a good attitude, which is always important. In that respect, I'm happy."

Lukas Klostermann:

  • "It was obvious that in our first competitive match one there may be one or two areas where we lack fluidity. We played against a tough team today, but we held them off well. We didn't take our chances to make it 4-1 and then they pulled one back to make it 3-2. We showed the right attitude and won the game."

Willi orban:

  • "We implemented a lot of new things well and showed many positives. Ultimately, we achieved our goal, which is what counts. We gave the ball away too often and made life difficult for ourselves. For now we are happy to have overcome the first hurdle. After the equaliser we reacted brilliantly, created chances and then re-took the lead."
