bundesliga.com rounds up the players' post-match reaction following the Royal Blues' 3-0 win on Tuesday...
FC Schalke 04
Max Meyer: The coach has faith in everyone in the squad. Everyone plays an important role for the team and we saw that tonight. Everyone stepped up to the plate tonight. It was a very good team performance.
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar: When things are going badly it’s obviously not good but when you win everybody’s happy. We played really well as a team tonight and were very determined to get the win. That was the most important thing and that’s why we got the three points.
SV Werder Bremen
Zlatko Junuzovic: We can’t say we’ve had a bad start to the start to the season because if we’d won tonight it would have been a different story. We needed to be tighter at the back. The defeat is frustrating.
Rafael Wolf: Meyer shot to my left and I was a bit late to react. I got my hand to it but somehow it squeezed through, so that was a tough one to concede.
