WERDER.DE: You were both extremely motivated for the game, but so were all of your teammates. What gave you the incentive?
Anthony Ujah: “Felix and I tried to motivate the team, but the coach also wanted us to make a perfect end to the season. We’ve had a great season, which we wanted to crown with a win. It feels really good to go into the holidays with a win, both for us, the Union fans and also for Werder.”
Felix Kroos: “It’s no big secret that I will always have Green and White in my heart. I played here for six years and always felt completely at home. You never forget that. We also wanted to show that we have great character as a team. Furthermore, every Bundesliga match and every win is something special for us.”
WERDER.DE: Toni, you scored the opening goal against Düsseldorf. What was going through your head?
Anthony Ujah: “I took the ball forward and shot through the legs of the goalkeeper. I was in a good position and could see straight away that the ball was in. So I instantly started celebrating and didn’t have to wait for the referee’s decision. Afterwards I thought of Werder straight away. It wasn’t quite as emotional as it was against Frankfurt, but nevertheless I was really happy. Then when I heard the score in Bremen at half time, I knew it was down to us.”
