“In a final, it’s about being the winners in the end!”

One camera, one monitor. In front of it was Edin Terzic. Then suddenly he was no longer alone in the room.

The press conference was held virtually, as is customary in coronavirus times. One camera, one monitor. In front of it was Edin Terzic. Then suddenly he was no longer alone in the room. The team “stormed” the press conference and poured beer all over their coach…

Before then, he had been able to talk about the game, his players, the opposition and his feelings. “The mood is extremely good and we are enjoying the moment,” said the BVB coach, adding: “It wasn’t our best game, especially when we were in possession. We also had a bit of luck in one situation or another. We did a good job playing deep. That’s how we scored our goals too. In a final, it’s about being the winners in the end. We managed to do that against seriously good opposition.”

Edin Terzic on the match and two special players:
On Saturday, we got in behind the defence and looked dangerous time and again. I do not want to single anyone out, but I would like to mention at least two. Firstly, Roman Bürki, who is going through the most difficult phase of his career. On Saturday, we were able to rely on him. He showed everyone that he was on the ball right away. The second is Lukasz Piszczek, who completely emptied the tank today. He gave it everything – all his emotions and performance – to win the cup again. We are pleased that he can finish his career with a title at BVB.

… on Lukasz Piszczek’s emotions after the final whistle:
I was surprised that he could still cry – I thought he already given everything he had. How important Piszczu has been in recent years cannot be put into words. How he fought back after minor and major injuries and gave the team stability, we are very pleased about that.

… on his own feelings:
I hope to find some time to call my family soon. I really wish they were here.

… on the run-in in the league:
Before we came here, we made it clear that we wanted to be the cup winners and get six points as cup winners. Starting tomorrow, we will set about that.
