"We have a good connection up front!"

Alexander Sörloth, Yussuf Poulsen, Péter Gulácsi and Julian Nagelsmann react to the 2-0 win over Wolfsburg in the DFB-Pokal quarterfinals

Julian Nagelsmann:

  • "The boys played well yet again today; they were motivated and fought right until the end, which is something I try to also do on the sidelines. 

    Alexander Sørloth did very well today again and had a massive impact on the result, just like he did against Gladbach recently. It feels as if he's finally arrived. He created several chances against a very strong defensive side. I'm also very happy for Hee-chan Hwang, that he was able to score." 

Alexander Sørloth:

  •  "I've been able to help out the team in the last couple of matches, which I want to continue doing. I get along extremely well with Yussuf Poulsen. It feels good to have such a good connection on the pitch with your fellow striker. We're able to pick each other out. Yussi definitely deserved the Man of the Match award. He's a great player and a great striker. As a team, we're taking it game by game in order to be fully focused on what's next for us." 


Yussuf Poulsen:

  • "The counterattack was played out brilliantly and of course I’m happy with the goal. Alex Sørloth is showing his best side at the moment – he had a crucial involvement in our comeback against Gladbach too. He has proven that you can fight back after a tough spell and bring your game back onto the pitch.

    Of course, we dream of lifting the trophy and we will do everything to do so - as you saw on the pitch today. We're really fired up for the cup, but we still have to win two games and we know that. However, we’ll do everything we can to get back to Berlin again."

Péter Gulácsi:

  • "There was a good goalkeeper at each end today. Fortunately, we scored two goals and got through to the next round of the cup. I’m pleased for Koen Casteels and that he’s doing well, because he’s a fantastic person and a really good goalkeeper.
    If you look at the three competitions, the DFB-Pokal trophy is the closest one. We were very focused and now want to take the next step and reach the final in Berlin. We want to win a title at some point and at the moment we’re just two games away from a trophy in this competition."
