Marsch praises Poulsen: "He almost turned the game around alone"

Jesse Marsch lauded Yussuf Poulsen after RB Leipzig's comeback win over Greuther Fürth, saying the striker 'almost turned the game around alone'.
RB Leipzig coach Jesse Marsch sung the praises of Yussuf Poulsen after the striker came on to score the equaliser in Saturday's victory over Greuther Fürth.

'Die Roten Bullen' were trailing 0-1 at half-time, but Poulsen helped them to turn the game around by scoring the equaliser and winning a penalty after replacing Kevin Kampl at the break.

"We were really bad," Marsch said in a post-match interview, reflecting on Leipzig's first-half performance.

"We were relaxed at half time and told the players that we have to make fewer mistakes and win more duels. It's important that we learn from the first half, but above all that we talk about our response in the second half," he added.

"The substitutes played really well. Thank God we had Yussuf Poulsen in the second half. He almost turned the game around alone. He was absolutely ready and we're really grateful for his performance.

"In the future we have to play with more clarity in possession and show our quality from the start in our home games."

Leipzig sit sixth in the Bundesliga table after today's win.
