what a good evening let's see Lisbon a warm welcome to the BK post game with our head coach Oliver Glasner Oliver congratulations on this great 220 at
Sporting and equivalent to entering the Champions League round of 16 hello to you and Oliver please then statement thank you very much Bartos for the congratulations that I pass them on one by one and the team has an incredible time what they continue to do in the games that if how they deal with setbacks over and over again today we find ourselves with a bad first half played He had little presence and and yes, so 01 completely back well deserved and then at half-time they lowered their heads and then I told them guys to play with conviction in everything we do or completely or nothing if we attack then completely or not at all but not so halfway and on the ball he has the same and now we're going to show that we can do better and hold our heads up yeah and the Jungs comes out and implements that so it's amazing to me how they pick each other up again sebastian was a big factor with the substitution who then stepped up as captain and dragged the others down and yeah then we played. a lot in the middle and if you then show this will, this belief, this passion, then you can also play luck with the penalty and then we were there again and then we bumped it up to 2-1 and we passed the rounds and I'm now in the round of 16 I can't believe it but we scored 10 points in the group stage in our first season, that's just outstanding and what gives me the most joy and makes me incredibly proud is that it's always been us. we have done our thing no matter what stadium at home or away no matter which opponent it doesn't matter if we were behind or ahead and today we were in the second half we ourselves are at a high level again and that's why I think we deserve to be in the round of 16 and congratulations to the players to the team congratulations to all the supervisor died because I know how much everyone here invests every day and yes.
Now we are happy with this great step to the round of 16. Thank you, Oliver Schmidt from Wiesbadener Kurier. Axel Hellmann just said that he doesn't know what they did at half time, but they probably had a very steady hand, so he wanted to express. that they were very analytical Was it like that after yes after the disappointing first half namely I sat for a bit and the analysts showed some footage and said we don't have to show the guys anything it's not a matter of tactics ? a small thing that I will say right away, but it is a matter of conviction, yes, I think we attacked halfway, and then you have the qua quality they always knew how to play their half spaces they were able to play towards the center from the outside we ran a lot after having possession of the ball and that was the only analytical clue we decided to play the ball for a half space if the opponent with the turn over the six and to create a majority there and in the first half we were not present in these quarters at all and that is why we could not implement the idea and we did much better in the second half as I said but in general it was easy there will be a better spirit there will be better energy more passion yes after 11 then we started with more intensity up front yes and then in the counter pressure we were present and then we got what we wanted, that is, we were able to consolidate ourselves in the opponent's field over long distances and that was with our positional game but above all with our way of playing. ar how we were then just on the field that was responsible for that and that they also realized that or you can see that I am interested in the last five minutes before the break, so I would have liked to have a timeout but there is not and it is That's why I also jump sometimes when I'm like Rumpelstiltskin on the bench because I can already see it but I can't intervene the worst thing for the coach and but again what I see doesn't help what I say doesn't help it helps it's crucial that the players accept and trust it on all of us and then try to implement it in the best possible way and that was the deciding factor today I think, that's simply because everything else wouldn't have helped us and that's why all the thanks and all the praise goes to the players because they will be in charge of filming this game again Christopher Michel from Sport1 Congratulations on this historic success Kolumani also secured today with great individual action and a amazing shot on saturday they still said about the next step you need to take when you work on this conclusion four days later it's these learning effects that make you so incredibly happy as a manager, especially with the youngster who also always cheers after every goal where you still You can see it, I would say with childish joy, to talk about a learning effect today would be too much, but it was then, I didn't think how cool it was so good in the game that I'm not looking for enough depth either and in this action it must be said that only one he intercepts the ball and then plays over the chain with the second contact and that was also the idea of playing much more behind the chain when he was going to have a deep defensive block because they offer you very little space and that's it, we just implemented it bad in the first half and the situation was great and then we just sat down because of his speed, on the other hand respect didn't cause any penalty tion and I think then she closed her eyes and he hit the goal very well and soon decided the game Weitbrecht from the FAZ Mr.
Glasner there are not many games in the Champions League that are within promoted to man of the match in just 45 minutes Sebastian Rother made him today an exceptional player but also a person what a value how important it is for his team as a leader a great value and I have mentioned quite often and yes today you totally deserve it you said the game sebastian then he went ahead he threw himself into every duel in As for football anyway, outstanding quality but he couldn't have done it alone today but then he dragged the others with him and then this came that you say this conviction turned everything we did and that was Sebastian today of the songs and that must ste not with words but deeds and he was one of the songs, then he helped the guys incredibly that we could still change the game, but the whole team did it and that was the message of h oy before the game because of course I think we.
I have had very few changes in the last games and then there was one or the other who had a few minutes and said that the eleven was going to start but surely the eleven does not finish the game and the eleven cannot win today's game that was all message today before kick off and we will need him no matter how many minutes he plays and we will need everyone who is out there and cross your fingers and that's how it was today and that's why another team succeeded today please send our colleague here in Mitte lots of chances doing manly gate from set pieces what did you try to tell your game your set on time answer german or yes in english yes like i was people before ist all maybe with half the power we want to do we are touch with intensity one happy when we could keep it but in our last lines spaces back and special in the plan was to come from the correct word half a space on the weak side of because we know the sport always moves and makes it very tight with the bollies and I also wanted to change the Cypress that we want to use and this was the tactical message for more Champions League and players to do it Christopher Michel Herr Klasse the Bundesliga lasts one more week but the European Cup season, I'll just say the Cup of Europe, which means it is over now it started in Seville at the beginning of March and now here today it ends with such a big win a success is also in your coaching career in general the footballer's career is actually the best or top 10 months that you could live like this or 9 months that you could live like this the best 9 months were my wife's pregnancy I was even happier after that, because all the children were born healthy, but then there were these 9 months, at least of a professional nature Although I have spots, I would have liked to win the Super Cup against Real, I think we played like that today, the first part, but not with total conviction, we have learned from it and we don't want to draw any conclusions you still told the player that of course you want to toast this success today but there will be no big celebrations or matches we want to go until the last day of the Bundesliga match against Mainz at the highest level we are in very good shape we are doing it very well in the Bundesliga and we want to do it now, but I didn't.
Don't tell him because, as you say, I am a very tough dog. I didn't say that someday we would start training later in January and have one more day to celebrate the holidays, but like I said, it starts today. We are happy to chat a bit and then regenerate because in Augsburg we are a tough fight and we want to be ready for three Bundesliga points if you have any questions, but dear Glasner, it seems that is no longer the case. Well, thank you very much Oliver for everything that happened today, also on behalf of the club's squad, historic moment, entry to the Champions League round of 16, we look forward to everything that comes, enjoy the night and hopefully thanks to you too
