Post-match reaction

After the 2-0 win over 1. FSV Mainz 05, the VfB players spoke of a fiercely contested match which they deservedly emerged victorious from.

Sasa Kalajdzic: “I’m so happy with the win and also with my goal. Borna sent over an incredible cross. I talk to him before every training session and at the start of every match, and tell him ‘today’s the day!’ And tonight, it finally was. That’s such a good feeling. Mainz fought right to the end, even when they went 2-0 down, but we didn’t let up for a moment. We showed today that we can also battle it out with teams. We have good spirit and we can play – and when you combine those two elements, you make life tough for your opponents. I’m pleased that we took our chances, and at the end of the day, we deserved our three points.”

Marc Oliver Kempf: “Mainz took it out of us today. They came out full of confidence and played an extremely high press which made it tough for us. We stood up to them well from beginning to end, though, and our footballing quality got us a deserved win.”
