bundesliga.com rounds up the reactions from the Volksparkstadion...
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Dortmund striker): “It’s really special. I’m really happy. So it’s great to win this game with the team. I know I made a mistake last week, so I wanted to pay this back, to say sorry to everybody. I realise that my trip to Milan was a mistake and I wanted to make it up to the team and above all the coach.”
Watch: Pierre-Emerick addresses his four-goal day against Hamburg:
Thomas Tuchel (Dortmund coach): “I’m over the moon. Four goals, and he missed one or two chances to score even more. It’s perfect for us. We can’t reach any of our goals without Auba - that’s crystal clear and that’s why we are very happy.”
André Schürrle (Dortmund midfielder): “It was very important for us draw some confidence from the 4-0 lead, to show us we are on a winning way. We said before the match it doesn’t matter how we set up to play, we just want to press them, we want to fight here. It was a good game from us.
Albin Ekdal (Hamburg midfielder): “If you go 3-0 down in the first half to a team like Dortmund it’s very difficult to come back. Too many mistakes. We had a good second half, scored two, but in the end giving up five goals at home is not good.”
Markus Gisdol (Hamburg coach): “It’s hard to find the right words after a game like this. We really put a lot of work into our game plan and after two or three bad individual errors it all went out the window. It’s a very difficult situation for the team and the whole club.”
Dennis Diekmeier (Hamburg defender): “After we went 1-0 down we were still right in it, showing a lot of fight in the tackle. But the 2-0 really hurt us and things got difficult. The positive is that we came out in the second half ready to go out and get forward and score goals, which we made happen.”
