Edin Terzic (coach Borussia Dortmund): “I’ve been in almost every corner of this stadium. I watched the award ceremonies from behind and to be on the podium today is just amazing. It’s an indescribable feeling because we’ve been on an extremely good path in the past few months. That just makes us proud. “
… to the game: “I was extremely happy to sacrifice my vote. We all deserved this evening. It’s a day-to-day business. We keep getting in the face when things don’t go well. Now let’s have this one evening. Today I only hold the trophy of the hand. ”
Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund) on …
… the past few weeks: “The moral we have shown in the past few weeks, how we fought our way back this season, that makes us incredibly proud. Whenever we feel that we have to, we are a little under pressure and show our quality. And We have to continuously show that against the supposedly little ones over the next few years. “
… a possible EM nomination: “EM? Yes of course, why not? I can only influence it on the pitch, the rest will come, no stress.”
Hans-Joachim Watzke (Managing Director Borussia Dortmund) on …
… the game: “To be fair, you have to say: the result is clear, but it wasn’t the game. You play partly openly, that suits us. It wasn’t that clear, but we are of course happy.”
… Edin Terzic: “Edin Terzic did a great job. He took over the team in December, it was half dead, and he brought it to life. That is a huge achievement at his first coaching station, great.”
Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund): “When I look back on this game, I’ll be annoyed that it didn’t turn out to be a hat trick. Next time I pass the keeper, I’ll put him in. I regret that I didn’t shoot. Sorry, BVB fans , I am sorry.”
Lukasz Piszczek (Borussia Dortmund): “I’ve always said that I want to end my career here with a trophy. Today we did it and I’m very proud. I can’t find any words. Those were pure emotions, that was the high point today, I could do that in mine I can’t imagine my best dreams. Like all championships, this cup victory is very, very nice, but today I’ll take it with me for life. “
Oliver Mintzlaff (Managing Director RB Leipzig): “Congratulations to Dortmund. It’s bitter, we have big plans, I think we also learned the lessons from the game over the weekend. The team started the game well and are falling behind due to an individual mistake in midfield. I can Don’t blame the team, they weighed everything in, but it wasn’t enough. We came here because we wanted to win this thing. Now we’re getting the second time in three years. That hurts, of course. “
Yussuf Poulsen (RB Leipzig): “We were superior in the first half, but we couldn’t prevent the counterattack. You felt you made three goals out of three chances, as did in the second half. We didn’t defend crucial situations well. You have to acknowledge that the opponents are good players But if you’re 3-0 down after the first half, you don’t deserve to leave the field as a winner. “
Marcel Sabitzer (RB Leipzig): “We conceded an early goal, let ourselves be countered four times. And when we let them come into switching situations, we had a hard time defending them on seventy meters. We did that badly. But I’m honest, after the connection I really thought nor can we make it close. We weren’t compelling enough in the first half, but we’ll learn from it. We have to straighten our heads and move on. “
