VfB Stuttgart secured another season in the Bundesliga yesterday as club captain Wataru Endo's injury-time winner sealed a dramatic 2-1 win over FC Köln.


Speaking after the game, Stuttgart coach Pellegrino Matarazzo and Wataru Endo were naturally overjoyed.

"That was pure ecstasy, a wonderful moment, incredible. I’m so happy for the boys. You don't forget moments like today," said Matarazzo.

"The way the stadium exploded after the second goal was unbelievable," added Endo.

"I couldn’t be happier. We achieved it together. The fans gave us incredible encouragement and helped us back once again. Thank you for the support," said the captain.
