The 2019/20 season has come to an end. The players answered some questions from journalists for the final time after the 2-1 loss to Gladbach on the final day - namely Per Skjelbred who made his final appearance for the Blue and Whites. “To play my last game away from home with no fans was very strange, but it was great to get one last opportunity to get out there and play football with the lads one last time. That was the most important thing for me,” said Skjelbred who will now leave the club and head home to Norway. We collected all the post-match reaction.
Per Skjelbred: To play my last game away from home with no fans was very strange, but it was great to get one last opportunity to get out there and play football with the lads one last time. That was the most important thing for me. I wanted to play through my injury a bit more but it was too much of a risk for me so I had to come off. So it was a short outing for me, but a fun one nonetheless. Now we’ll go back to Berlin and have a little farewell celebrations, on Sunday morning I’ll have breakfast then it’s straight to Norway for me. I want to win everything I can in the next few years with Rosenborg BK, but I’m still sad to be leaving Hertha BSC.
Vedad Ibisevic: Per hasn’t scored for the club in all the time I’ve been here, I hoped today he would finally do it. But then he had to go off and I had to do it for him (laughs). I scored it for him because he’s a good friend and an even better guy. I thought Gladbach deserved to win overall though, they created a lot of chances and could’ve scored a few more. We were lucky that that din’t happen, but then when we got into the game, they scored again and we felt a bit unlucky. Either way they deserved it and now we’ll have to go back to Berlin, grab something to eat, then get to bed early. Early mornings and all that (laughs).
