The Post-Match Quotes
Jean-Paul Boëtius: “I think I’m possibly the happiest man in the world. We all knew how important the game today was, and we wanted to win it. We travelled to Dortmund feeling good. It was crucial today that we were super focused and in the zone on the pitch. Everyone, from the boys on the pitch, to all of us on the bench, to all of the staff, were all one unit today. This is something that sets Mainz apart. Unfortunately, we haven’t always shown that this season, and that’s why we are where we are. But we have the chance to stay up in our hands, and if we can continue like this, then we can do it. We all know how important Saturday’s game is, but we’re looking forward to it. Now we have to recover well and get ready for the weekend.”
Danny Latza: “My legs hurt, but I don’t really care at all. The victory is much more important and we’ve put a good shift in today. Nobody believed we would win in Dortmund, and people had written us off after the Augsburg game. You can see we came out unscathed, the boys on the pitch and on the bench, the staff, and everyone on that pitch was totally focused. We played great today. Overall, we didn’t have that much possession, but we were strong at the back and had good movement. Dortmund didn’t have too many chances. We also had a couple of nice plays, but we knew we had to defend well and give it our all. Everyone was up for it, even the lads who came on as subs. I told Jonny before the game that he should play freely. No one deserved the goal more than he did.“
