Eintracht Frankfurt trainer Dino Toppmöller praised his team's response to their recent form slump after the SGE pulled off a shock upset of Bayern on Saturday afternoon.

"We said that we had to push ourselves to the limit," Toppmöller reminded the Sky microphones afterwards," I told the lads that I couldn't promise them a result. But if we were on fire from the first minute onwards, then the likelihood of us getting a good result increases. Of course, it's all the better that it turned out like this."
"This was a strong performance from start to finish," Toppmöller continued, "We were simply poor in the last two games. It was important to show a reaction today. That's what I asked the lads to do prior to the game. The reaction was right there from the start. I never questioned their mentality or willingness."
"I totally vouch for this team," the SGE trainer noted near the conclusion of his interview, "It might not have been there for a couple of games, but it was there right from the start today. One could see it in the opening few minutes."
