- "Congratulations to Dortmund on the deserved victory. I can't make any criticism of the team. We conceded three goals in the first half from three individual mistakes, but still came back well and dominated the game in the second half but lacked the necessary luck. I can't blame the team, but in the end we're 4-1 losers, and that's tough to take.
- "First of all, congratulations to Dortmund for the win. It never feels good when you lose a final. However, I'm proud of the team, because overall we performed well, even though the result doesn't look good. To come out and play such a good second half after being 3-0 down at halftime, and show so much heart, is fantastic. I don't think we were the worse team today, but when you're 3-0 down at the break, it's a big task. Dortmund sat very deep after their lead and looked to counterattack. Being behind didn't make it any easier for us in a final like that.
- "Dortmund scored three goals from what felt like two chances in the first half, but that's just how it was. We simply didn't defend well enough in the decisive moments, but you also have to acknowledge that Dortmund have some very good players.
- "Of course, it feels really bad so soon after the game, but I don't know if we were really three goals worse. If you allow the opponent to counter so often, it will get difficult at some point. We had more possession, but we weren't decisive enough in the final third and that's how you lose a game like that. Dortmund let us have that possession, but they have 3 or 4 players who transition quickly and they took advantage of that. We gave them too much space and we have to blame ourselves for that. I'm full of disappointment right now and if I had the chance, I'd play the whole 90 minutes again, that's certain."
