"I came on and just wanted to do my best," said Ansgar Knauff after scoring the winning goal in the game against Stuttgart. "I absolutely wanted to win the match. I'm delighted that it worked out."
An assist to rescue a 2-2 draw in Cologne three weeks ago, a Champions League appearance in Manchester on Tuesday and now his first Bundesliga goal. "It's been an unbelievable week for me with my debut in the starting XI and my first goal in the Bundesliga," said 19-year-old Knauff to Sky, adding: "I'm just delighted and I hope it continues this way. Edin is a super coach. He gives me a good feeling, he gives super instructions; I just feel comfortable with him. That helps me a lot. He always wants me to be brave and to play to my strengths. It's very good that it's going so well at the moment. Hopefully it continues like that." (tl)
