Here are excerpts of the interview.
Auba, your goal was the decisive for the first Bundesliga home win against the Bavarians for more than four years. Why it was a deserved win?
”It was a really tough game for us. But the whole team has worked very very hard for this victory.That’s exactly why we deserved the victory. The game was very special, with an incredible atmosphere that the viewers have created. We made it! That is why we are very happy”.
What it did with your goal celebration all about?
”A good friend of mine, a rapper from France, was now at the stadium. He made a song about Liegestütze, that was the reason for the goaljubel. Honestly, he is a Bayern fan and not only my friend, but also with Franck Ribery good friends. That is why I told him that he will be a BVB fan after the game”.
You have indeed won anyway, so the question is allowed: What happened in your great chance after 71 minutes?
”That was of course the tremendous opportunity for me to shut the bag. Then I lost control.Normally, I put myself on the right foot. This only shows that I have to train such a situation further and further. Then he goes back in the next time”.
With a defeat you would have had nine points behind Bayern. Now you have shortened to three points. How important was this win also facing the table?
”Of course, extremely important. We are now back in the track, now have to go so far. We need to focus on our games and not look at the other teams. In this way, we have to continue”.
