… the situation to stand with 40 points in place 7:
It’s a lot of fun with the team, but also for the players when they run through the city. For all our opponents it is difficult to play against us.
… most recently four points against Bayer 04 and the BVB – despite many failures:
That’s a lot to us as a team. No matter who plays: all are prepared, all are hot, all are sparkling! And you also see that when I come in or Jan Thielmann or Kingsley Schindler. They always make it good. Through the many failures I got my chance. And I think I used it too.
… the problem of lack of game practice:
This is difficult. But I have to say honestly: Benno Schmitz and Kingsley do that well as the whole team makes good.
The level right rear is very high according to Ehizibue
… the reasons why he ranks behind Schmitz and Schindler as a right-back:
Because they make it good. It’s that simple. The coach has explained it that way. So I’m the third right rear defender, but if my chance comes, I’ll take her.
… the things he has to do better to outstrip the competition:
The two must make it worse (laughs…). I try everything possible.
Trainers form the team. If you see what we do, that’s the handwriting of the coach.
Kingsley Ehizibue about Steffen Baumgart
… the meaning of coach Steffen Baumgart:
When I talk about the team, I also talk about the coach. Trainers form the team. If you see what we do in training, but also in the game, that’s the handwriting of the trainer. Great respect before the coach!
… his good mood despite residential role:
How we play this year is a lot of fun. But not all can play. But I’m healthy, have a lot of fun and the weather is nice too. And we have 40 points. You can not have a bad mood. In the last two years, the situation was difficult and a completely different.
is still “very much possible” this season
… about the chances of the FC this season:
I think it’s very much possible. We look from game to game. That’s the most important. Now the full focus is on Union Berlin. When we win, we will continue to look. So there is the coach. And so the focus is also there because we do not remember that we are so far above.
… his future:
Of course, it is difficult that I did not play a lot this season. But that’s why we take care of our summer. We play a nice season – and you want to go to the end, stay healthy and let’s see how far it still works.
