Edin Terzic was satisfied with the result and delighted with Ansgar Knauff’s goal and performance, as was Thomas Delaney. Here are the match reactions.
Edin Terzic: “It was definitely the correct result. We set out to win this game at all costs. You could feel that desire until the end – despite the setbacks. In the second half, we were much braver in possession and managed to finish off our attacks. We scored beautiful goals. The team got their reward for today in the form of Ansgar’s goal at the end. Ansgar is with us because of his qualities, because of his confidence. He has the courage to show everyone his ability to win the one-on-ones and look for shooting opportunities. We lacked that against Frankfurt, when we were in similar positions. Ansgar did brilliantly today.”
Thomas Delaney: “It’s a great day for Ansgar today. He has settled in well and already performed well in Manchester. He scored the goal and made the difference; great game from him. He’s really fast and can cause problems for any team. He also showed his danger in front of goal today. We have high expectations of ourselves at the moment. If something doesn’t work out immediately, we become slightly impatient. We need to control more phases throughout the 90 minutes. Generally speaking, we’ll be heading back to Dortmund with a good feeling.”
