Wolfsburg - VfL Wolfsburg debutant Max Kruse praised his team-mates' patient approach in their 2-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday afternoon, while the Eagles' goalscorer Stefan Reinartz cut a frustrated figure despite a promising display by Armin Veh's side.
bundesliga.com summarises the players' post-match thoughts...
Max Kruse: "We started brightly and passed the ball well in the final third. The most important thing is that we got the three points, but we now need to focus on our next game against Köln. We knew Frankfurt wouldn't go all out attack against us, we knew they'd defend well and that we would have to be patient. We managed to do that very well."
Timm Klose: "We were surprised by Frankfurt. They played very well, were very strong in the tackle and going forward. But the longer the game went on the more you could see that we had that cutting edge. We conceded far too quickly after going 2-0 up. You could see how much Frankfurt wanted the equaliser, but I'm happy we didn't concede in the second half. It's great having Kruse in our side - he's settled in very well and it's fun playing football with him."
Stefan Reinartz: "Wolfsburg made the most of their first two chances. Overall it was an even game, but Wolfsburg were slightly more clinical in front of goal. It was nice to score, but it made no difference in the end. The performance was ok and I think we can go into our next few games with a lot of optimism."
