Marco Fabian described Eintracht Frankfurt's 2-2 draw with FC Bayern München as "feeling like a victory" after Die Adler stunned the champions on Saturday.
Marco Fabian (Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder): “It feels like a victory because we put a lot of effort into it, we ran a lot with just ten men. This point is really rewarding, we just have to enjoy it now. It’s great for all my teammates and now we need to continue like this because we have important games coming up.”
Timothy Chandler (Frankfurt defender): "We could have taken even more from the game, given how we played today. One point is pretty decent, we equalised despite being a man down. It was a fantastic team performance.”
Niko Kovac (Frankfurt head coach): “I had a really good feeling about the team during the week. They did a great job of implementing what we did in training. We came from a goal down twice. You saw what can happen when you give everything. The players will have a day off tomorrow.”
Carlo Ancelotti (FC Bayern München coach): “We didn’t have the right attitude. I hope it won’t happen again. We were better in the second half, but the opposition were more aggressive. At the end of the day, 2-2 is a fair result.”
Thomas Müller (Bayern forward): “We didn’t play as we set out to. Frankfurt controlled the game. We’re not used to that. I don’t want to get used to it either. The way we conceded the equaliser sums it up really. We’re making too many mistakes as a team, with and without the ball. We have to work on that.”
Arjen Robben (Bayern winger): “I can’t really be happy because we didn’t play well. It wasn’t the Bayern everyone knows and that’s why we have a lot to improve.”
Philipp Lahm (Bayern defender): “It might have been entertaining for the fans, but it wasn’t for us. You always run the risk of losing control if you gone into a game with anything but 100 per cent.”
Bastian Oczipka (Frankfurt defender): "We had more chances than we’ve ever had against Bayern today. We played well, and prevented them from finding their stride by going on the attack early. We kept them in check.
