England Under-20 international Ryan Kent was full of praise for his Freiburg side as they snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over Mainz on Matchday 13.

Speaking exclusively to bundesliga.com, the on-loan Liverpool man said: "The boys put in a very valiant effort. I think in the second half we really took the game to Mainz and it showed with the two goals. We held on towards the end but the three points are the most important thing today. Hopefully we can get back on track and carry on the rest of the season like this now."

It was only a second win of the season for Freiburg, who move - temporarily at least - out of the relegation zone.
