Markus Krösche, Oliver Glasner, Randal Kolo Muani and Mario Götze praised Eintracht’s team work and the support of the fans.

Board member for sport Markus Krösche: “We played with a back four for the third time and you could tell that the understanding and sense of where other people are is improving all the time. That progress, which is clear to see with each passing week, is the result of the work the coaching staff and players have put in.”

Head coach Oliver Glasner: “Wow! Congratulations to the team. That was a very focused performance and a fully deserved victory. And I’m not talking about the result but the energy and spirit we showed out on the pitch. We were wide awake right from the off. It was an extraordinary defensive display.”

Mario Götze: “We played very well both with and without the ball, and that was decisive today. We also scored our goals at the right time, including towards the end. That was one of the keys to our game. It was also very important that we kept a clean sheet.”

Randal Kolo Muani: “The best moment was when the final whistle blew and we knew we’d won 4-0. The fans celebrated with us. It was a wonderful feeling and a perfect evening for us. The fans give us so much strength and a second wind. That helps us out on the pitch.”
