We gave everything on the pitch and deserved this moment – we are family. Impossible to explain. A big gift from God I’d like to share with team-mates, friends and family.”
It’s about not only me but my team-mates and teamwork. Everyone worked really hard. Too difficult to play here against Ajax but I always believed in my team-mates. Even without key players, we did really well. We need to fight in every game like this.
“The football is amazing – it gives us a moment like this. We cannot imagine. The best moment in my life – in my career. I only need to say thank you to my team-mates.”
