"A really good reaction!"

Head coach Julian Nagelsmann, captain Marcel Sabitzer and Yussi Poulsen react to the 3-0 away win against Hertha Berlin

Julian Nagelsmann:

  • "Firstly, we have to acknowledge that we had a good opponent today. The pitch was tough to play on, which made it a tiring game for both sides.

    We really wanted the win and you could see that. In the end, I think the score was a bit too high, especially as we allowed a few chances at our end. It's not always easy to go again after an exhausting game in midweek, so we're even more pleased today.

    After Sabi and Nordi's bad luck in midweek, it was a really good reaction from them both today. They didn't let their heads drop, but rather bounced back!

    Of course, we're pleased to have moved back to within two points of FC Bayern. Some teams behind us also picked up points, which makes the victory today even more important."

Marcel Sabitzer:

  •  "We didn't have it easy in the first half, so it was important that we got the goal before the break. In the second half, we controlled the game and deserved the win in the end.
    I have full confidence in my right foot! I struck the ball ideally and it landed perfectly in the back of the net; it was a really nice goal.“

Yussuf Poulsen:

  • "Regardless of the league situation or how we played in midweek, we always have the same level of motivation to win!
    We had good control over the game and were the better team. It was a deserved win.

    We like accepting the challenge of the fight in the Bundesliga and are pleased to be in a close fight with the other four teams at the tip of the league."
