Speaking to the media Naglesmann said: “We were very good on the ball today, our third goal was really well worked. After that, Oli made some great saves and held the lead for us, before Kerem dealt the final blow.”
“There was more pressure on us to get a win today, but we dealt with it well. In footballing terms, we acted with self-confidence and we are very happy, of course, to take the three points home today.”
