"An almost perfect game!"

Julian Nagelsmann, Péter Gulácsi, Marcel Halstenberg and Chrisopher Nkunku share their thoughts on the record-breaking 8-0 win against Mainz


Julian Nagelsmann:

  • "We had a bit of trouble at the start of the game but made the right decisions at the back this time. We really got into the game after that and played at a great tempo going forward with the ball. I was especially pleased with the ten minutes after the break. We didn't let up. We relaxed a little after the seventh goal but then continued to play with focus and purpose. Today's game was very nearly perfect."

Péter Gulácsi:

  • "It was a simply fantastic evening - both for us and for the fans. We have set a benchmark in the league and shown everyone what we can do. Now we just want to build on it. What's important for me is that we also kept a clean sheet. We were consistent throughout the match, defended really well and deserved the big win. I'm incredibly proud to be voted 'Goalkeeper of the Season' for 2018/19. There is no greater individual honour than other players choosing you as the best. Thank you very much!"

Marcel Halstenberg:

  •  "A great day, an awesome game with eight glorious goals and I even managed to get one of them. I've not experienced many matches like this. It's an historic result for us as a club! Everyone played their part, whether on the pitch or from the bench. We did exactly what we had planned to do. We've got back what we've been missing - we were clinical in front of goal!" 

Christopher Nkunku:

  • "It was so much fun. Our link up play went really well and we took our chances when they came. We want to take this form into our Champions League match on Tuesday."
