Question: Granit Xhaka, congratulations on the first win of the season. How was the game for you, as Gladbach captain?

Granit Xhaka: I was only told that I was going to be captain just before the game. It was a dream come true for me to skipper such a big club here at the Borussia Park. After a win like that, I won't be forgetting the experience any time soon.
