"It was a very important win for us"
Head coach Marco Rose, goalkeeper Janis Blaswich and goal scorer Timo Werner on the victory over Borussia Mönchengladbach
- "It was a deserved win based on how the game went. In the context of our season, the victory is important for us. Now we'll prepare for the Man City game.
Janis saving the penalty was important for us. I feel like the team sprung into life after that and then we ended up going ahead through Timo's goal. If we had gone behind, the game could obviously have played out differently."

- "The penalty was an important moment in the game, but I’m giving the compliments to the team. We defended well, were always blocking balls and scored three goals. I’m pleased that I could help the team.
It was definitely emotional to play against my former team. It was a special game for me and I’m just pleased that we’re coming out of it with three points."
- "The first half was quite close. Gladbach defended really well. We made things difficult for ourselves with simple mistakes in our passing, but in the second half we developed that cutting edge required to win the game.
We’re third in the league now; in a part of the table where we deserve to be and want to be when you look at the quality in our team. We are the ones to blame for losing our grip on first place, but if we continue to work like we are now, perhaps we can start looking upwards."
