Berlin - VfL Wolfsburg's Robin Knoche admitted victory was the most important thing against Hertha Berlin, however, the capital city sides' players didn't think the score was a fair representation of how the game unfolded.

bundesliga.com rounds-up what the protagonists had to say at the final whistle.

Hertha Berlin


VfL Wolfsburg played very intelligently. We played really well for the first 20 minutes and even scored before half-time, but we needed to score the second. We had enough chances in the first and second half, but we were just a bit unlucky. I think we deserved a point. The chip from Adrian, Änis hit the crossbar at the very end, we had enough chances, but unfortunately we can’t boast 100% efficiency every week. They played very well until the very end.

We didn’t win because we made some little mistakes here and there, we could have been 2-0 or even 3-0 ahead, but allowed them to score an easy goal from a corner. Maybe we wanted too much, but then they scored the winner with a great shot out of nowhere. Usually we score a second goal. They didn’t deserve the win as we had a lot of chances, but that’s football, someone needs to win and someone needs to lose.

We didn’t let them have much going forward, only from a set piece. I personally should have defended better because he was my man, but overall against a strong Wolfsburg side, who are having a great season, we held our own even when we were 2-1 down. We need to take the positives out of it for our upcoming game against VfB Stuttgart and get some points.

Yesterday at training, I was in a similar situation and I also scored a goal.

First and foremost, it is important that we got three points today against a direct opponent in order to keep them at bay. Whether our success will continue, we will have to see next week.
