- "Overall, I liked our performance. There were a lot of times in the first half where we won possession and we could have been more effective. During the break we decided to be more compact. And after half time, we defended really well. There was only one bit of danger and Pete saved it brilliantly.
- "It was a very important victory for us. After the frustrating loss in Mainz, we wanted to get back to winning ways, and that’s exactly what we did. When you look at the chances, it was a deserved victory. It was really important to pick up the three points against a direct rival.
I didn’t have too much to do. At the end it was very important to keep them scoreless. We defended really well as a team and allowed very few chances against a strong side. Of course, I’m pleased to have played my part."
- "It was a great game from us as a team. We defended passionately and didn't allow Leverkusen much room to create chances.
It was important to show a reaction after the loss in Mainz - we did that today and deserved the win!
- "There are no easy games in the Bundesliga, not least against strong teams such as Leverkusen. After the defeat against Mainz, the coach underlined the importance of today's game.
Leverkusen are a very strong team physically, and threw themselves into every duel today. Therefore I’m really pleased with the win. Above all because it’s against a direct rival for positions in the table. We were all on the same page and communicated with each other, and scored an unbelievable goal. Pete’s save was unbelievable. We count on him for moments like that."
