„The players bring the glue with them, that holds it all together“, Thomas Tuchel said after the 2-1 victory at Tottenham Hotspur, talking about the team's run of victories, winning all four Europa League games in 2016.
Thomas Tuchel on the first victory of a German team at White Hart Lane: This means a lot to us. We knew about it and it was a great challenge for us to achieve this. We needed to have a special attitude and performance to win here against this strong Tottenham team. We showed the hunger we needed to be successful.
... on how it goes without saying how his team wins their games:
I think it is very remarkable to see what kind of willpower and hunger they show every three days. The team is capable of being flexible in the way that they carry out their tasks; they always have that desire. A big sense of trust between us has been created to achieve what we are aiming for. We can play in various formations and tactical line-ups. The players bring the glue that keeps it all together. They show a real sense of being able to achieve the things that we have set out to achieve. This is what you need to have to win game after game. (br)
