"I was pleased that I had a good game'', he is quoted as saying by derwestern.de. ''To get the early goal was very important and it was a great way to start the game.
"Quite simply, these fans are unbelievably great," he continued to Bild. "It was a great taster ahead of Friday, when we will play against Werder in front of 80,000. I really can't wait."
