Ostlund Quote
We tried different tactics in the first half and unfortunaly they didn´t work well. Our second half was one of the best this season. I hope we can take that into next week against Györi.

Biet Quote
We are happy with the two points and our position in the standings after five games, but not with our performance today. We unfortunately left many open throws against a good goalkeeper.

FTC Coach Quote
In general, we were quite satisfied with our performance, our attitude and our body language throughout the game. Of course, we lost the game, but we took a step in the right direction. And, if we perform like this against another great team like Esbjerg, points will come.
Allan Heine
Head Coach, FTC
Jensen Quote
They were in the finals last year ahead of us, so we knew what we were up against. That makes me proud of the result, because despite FTC's situation in the Champions League, it does not reflect what kind of team they have.
Jesper Jensen
Head Coach, Team Esbjerg
Metz Mayo
It was very important for us to win this game as we're now 5 points ahead of FTC for qualification.

Kanor Quote
I think Metz played very well today and we started to get frustrated because we couldn't find a solution. Hatadou Sako had a very good game. All these factors meant that the gap widened and we couldn't get our heads above water.
