Head coach Markus Anfang said there were a lot of positives to take from the game against FC Ingolstadt such as the second win in a row, three goals and a clean sheet. “We performed very well,” commented the Werder head coach after the 3-0 victory over FC Ingolstadt. “The only criticism would be our chance conversion,” as Anfang referred to a number of missed chances.

WERDER.DE has summarised the reaction to the second 3-0 victory in a row of head coach Markus Anfang, goalscorer Marvin Ducksch and debutant Mitchell Weiser.

Markus Anfang: “We played very well, I can only criticise our chance conversion. We were a bit sloppy defensively in the final 20 minutes, but overall it was a good performance. The lads were very sharp in attack, and we did well offensively today, which makes it difficult to pick out any flaws, but we could have scored more goals towards the end of the game, and so we could definitely be more clinical.

Marvin Ducksch: “I am very happy to have played my part in the team again today. I am glad we’ve made a good start after the break. We wanted to control the game from the start and stay solid in defence. The first half was great, but we did let our standards slip somewhat in the second half, so we now need to work on maintaining our performance for the entire 90 minutes.”

Mitchell Weiser: “It’s great that we won and that I got on the scoresheet, but we saw today that we can play even better – myself included. I’ve realised that I need to get back into the swing of things because I am not quite 100 per cent fit. But it’s been really fun to get back playing again. The team worked well overall today, but we could definitely improve. We’ve got a very young team and we’ll see how we get on with each game, but today was a good start.”

On the upcoming Nordderby:

Markus Anfang: “It was very important for us that we scored three goals and did not concede today, so that we can be confident going into the next game, because we’ll need to be. It’s also vital that the younger players perform in these sorts of games. Such victories give you a sense of security and we must take this into the next game vs. HSV. We have to go into that game with courage and intensity.”

Mitchell Weiser: “I’ve heard that it’s a crazy fixture, and I’m really looking forward to it.”
