"Just what I want to see from my team!"

Julian Nagelsmann, Yussuf Poulsen, Timo Werner and Markus Krösche give us their thoughts after a thumping 5-0 away win against 1. FSV Mainz 05.

Julian Nagelsmann:

  • "We got into it relatively quickly. It was a very dominant performance against Mainz. Not just the result, but they way we played pleased me. For example, Klostermann's defending in the 90th minute to keep a clean sheet. That's just the sort of fighting spirit that I want to see from my team. A very good away day."

Yussuf Poulsen:

  • "We were all at it today. From back to front. we played like we did last week, we just took our chances today. We're back to winning ways. We took the next step today, and need to keep on picking up points in order to stay in the top 4.

    The fact that I've played 250 games for Leipzig is a great achievement, one that I'm really proud of. But I'm also just as proud to wear the captain's armband."

Timo Werner:

  • "We played really well from the first minute, and put them under pressure all game. We converted the chances we created and that was the deciding factor for us winning the game.

    The others clubs had moved above us, so we really wanted to win in Mainz. We wanted these important points in order to secure qualification for next season's Champions League."

Markus Krösche:

  • "We played well, created tonnes of chances and scored great goals. We can be pleased with that great performance. It was a great game. We were much more clinical than we were in the Freiburg game and deserved to win."
