“These are things you will never forget. There are always flashbacks, scenes to remember. How we stood for example in the Roman or how the first goal fell in the final, or even the last one. These are things that remain,” he said.
The central midfielder continued to emphasize that the entire team’s goal throughout the season was to reach the final again.
“Everyone in the team raved about it all the time. And I said to the guys, when we get to the final, we win that too. I’m not going to Berlin to finish second. Marco Russ said it would be too much if we could do that. In the end we did it.”
