Berlin– After the 0-0 draw in Saturday evening’s headline game, Davie Selke, Jordan Torunarigha, Per Skjelbred and Valentino Lazaro shared their views on the game.
Jordan Torunarigha: “I’ve got used to coming on from the bench and helping the team out as a substitute this season. I’m happy to have helped the team – especially right at the death. I just trusted my instincts in the situation and ran to the line. Thankfully, it was the right decision. Sure, we could have played better but we fought hard for our point and we’ll happily take it with us back to Berlin.”
Per Skjelbred: “We didn’t play well but we’ll take a point. It’s always going to be tough when we give our opposition so much space. We simply had to keep fighting and had a bit of luck. Recently, we’ve played well and not got the points our performances have deserved so I’m glad to get a point.”
Valentino Lazaro: “We didn’t play well today. Bremen had control of the game and our attacking players were stuck in our own half throughout the first 45 minutes. We wanted to improve in the second half, and we did so in a few instances. We created one or two dangerous chances. It was a shame that Vedad Ibisevic couldn’t find the target. That was not the Hertha from our last two games, so to come away with a point is a good thing after a performance like that.”
Davie Selke: “It was a difficult game for us. We didn’t start the game well and we were half asleep in the first half. We woke up a bit after we came out of the dressing room for the second half and did better going forward. Vedad Ibisevic had a golden chance at the end. Despite that, we’re happy to come away with a point. The Bremen central defenders played well and combined effectively to clear the danger again and again. It was a special game for me. I always look forward to coming back to Bremen, even if things didn’t always go my way this time.”
