Jonatan Giraldez on postmatch interview
Speaking at the post-match interview Jonatan Giraldez said, “It’s an amazing feeling that I have right now. It’s difficult to explain with the exact words what I feel because it’s an important trophy for us.
“The way we did it is the most important thing because it’s not only talking about tactical positions and the physical conditions, sometimes the personality that we showed today is really important to win the game.
“When we were attacking in the first half, everything was fine. But the last metre we had to be a little more aggressive and be in the place to put the ball in the net. We deserved a lot [in the first half] and 2-0 was hard for us.
“After, we have to give a good reaction. Improving the tactical position and giving the opportunity to the player to show the personality they have. The second half we did it so it’s fantastic.
“I’m really proud of the team, the club and the supporters because I think the last seasons, all the investment in women’s football has been up every season. We need that, it’s very important to keep competing.
“The supporters gave us support in the whole game and then the players who played today, the ones who were on the bench as well they gave us the push necessary to win and then all the staff members.
“The last weeks were hard because Lucy, Frido and important players weren’t ready to compete and the amazing job helped them to be here today. I’m proud of all the team.”
Tommy Stroot on postmatch interview
Tommy Stroot was disappointed by the match results and said in the interview. He said, “Congratulations to Barcelona. When it was 2-0 at half-time, we had them exactly where we wanted.
“We tried to stabilise the things we did well in the first half and change a few things we could have done better [at half-time]. We expected Barcelona to attack fiercely but, having conceded so quickly, the second goal was a result of that.
“We needed a moment but it was good that after Barcelona’s equaliser we improved. It was about the small details, passes that went astray. We had those moments in the first half as well but we did a bit better. Twice in a row they came with all their power, but in the last 30 minutes it was a very open match.
“Even a few years ago, we wondered how long Wolfsburg could compete… but we managed to find a way to stay on that level and this final confirms that.
“We have players like Lena Oberdorf and others, young players taking their steps forward here and becoming world class at Wolfsburg. Barcelona had three former Wolfsburg players here, which confirms the work we are doing.”
