Coach Edin Terzic highlighted the special qualities of the winning goal scorer against VfB Stuttgart Ansgar Knauff. “He has the courage to show it all,” said Terzic, praising the 19-year-old striker, emphasizing that “he can fly past one-on-one and seek completion. That is what we missed last week.”
Knauff came on against Stuttgart in the 67th minute for the ailing captain Marco Reus and thus came on for his fifth professional appearance. Then he met in the 80th on preparatory work from Erling Haaland to the 3-2 victory. For him it was the end of an “unbelievable week” after Terzic started him on Tuesday in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League at Manchester City (1: 2).
“He’s a great coach, I feel good, he gives me good instructions,” said Knauff. “I get along well with it, I understand him well. That also helps me because he always tells me that I should be courageous and use my strengths, go one-on-one.”

Erling Haaland set a new season record in terms of speed in the 3-2 win in Stuttgart. The striker was measured at 36.04 km / h and exceeded the previous record of Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram (35.97 km / h).
However, the 20-year-old Norwegian did not contribute to the victory. This means that he remains at 21 goals this season and is still third on the list of goalscorers behind Robert Lewandowski from FC Bayern Munich (35) and Andre Silva from Eintracht Frankfurt (23).
Borussia Dortmund can rely on Marco Reus and Mats Hummels for the quarter-final second leg of the Champions League against Manchester City on Wednesday (9 p.m.), both of whom had to be replaced in the 3-2 win at VfB Stuttgart.
“Marco has played a lot in the last few weeks, played very intensely, you mustn’t forget that. Then he also took a blow. But I’m confident that tomorrow will look better,” said coach Edin Terzic about Reus, who against Stuttgart had been substituted for the winning goal scorer Knauff.
