eight in a row! incredible! Our boys are ecstatic. here are the first reactions on the title win.
We had an incredible season overall. It wasn't as easy as it looked, however. We have earned it all through hard work and improved from game to game. We have a really good spirit in the team, and I think you can see that. The club is on a superb path. The philosophy is fantastic. We'll see what the next few years bring. Now it's the time to celebrate the title!
It will never get boring. There is always so much work behind it over the whole year. We are absolutely deserving champions. Not every day is easy, and there are training sessions that are less enjoyable than others, but on the whole I still enjoy being out on the pitch and playing football. It's the best possible job for me, and I just love doing it.
We have loads of quality, also as individuals, and we work really well together. We are an incredible team. Everyone works for each other and we all support one another. It means so much to me, but it's not only about me. It means so much to the club. I am just incredibly grateful and pleased that I was able to help the team to have such a good season. I am just really happy to be here.
If FC Red Bull Salzburg keep on the path they are on now, it will be extremely difficult for the other teams in Austria. Something extremely good has been built up here over the past decade. With a club that is getting better all the time in European competitions, with the Champions League in the past two years. Now we have to establish ourselves even more there, really frighten the big guns and not only compete with them. It's not easy for Austrian clubs, even if the top four in the country are developing well.
It was a little difficult for us in the first half as we were nervous. At the end we showed the kind of quality that has made us champions. The atmosphere and spirit in our group are incredible. It's really quite special, and I could see it on my first day here. There are huge opportunities with this kind of team. I am just so pleased and proud to be a part of this group.
