"The win was more than deserved!"

Head coach Julian Nagelsmann, Konrad Laimer, Patrik Schick and Stefan Ilsanker share their thoughts on the 4-1 win against 1. FC Köln..


  • "I was really pleased with our first half performance. We created a lot of chances, were powerful going forward and didn't give the opposition anything. We coped well up top without Yussuf Poulsen.

    We dealt with the opposition well and continued to control the game even after conceding. Our fourth goal put the game to bed and we deserved the win.

    We need to put in a similar performance on Wednesday and secure our place in the Champions League last 16."

Konrad Laimer:

  • "When the ball came to me I just controlled it and hit it perfectly. Of course, I am always delighted to score and help the team.

    We were in control of the game for the full 90 minutes and used our pace on the counter to great effect. We deserved our 4-1 victory."
