- Wagner proud of his players for executing the game plan
- Listen to David's full interview on HTTV below!
David Wagner was full of praise for his men as Town stifled Manchester City's season-long potency in-front of goal to earn a thoroughly deserved point at the Etihad.
The Head Coach described himself as 'over the moon' on an afternoon which saw the newly-crowned Champions restricted to a handful of efforts from range; a sign that Town's defensive effort was nothing short of sensational.
David noted that his men 'made the impossible possible', and that his players performed tremendously to execute the plan and stay switched on against their table-topping counterparts for the duration of a long 90 minutes.
A vital point in the race for Premier League survival, the boss continued to say that the result just adds to the belief that was instilled; even ahead of the season commencing.
When speaking to HTTV, David Wagner commented:
“I think they’ve done fantastic today. When we prepared them today - against the best team in the league - the champion. First of all big credit to City and Pep for their great achievement, you’ve seen today that they are the best team.
“When we prepared them, we gave them so many themes that they have to be aware of, especially defensively. They can attack on the wings, the centre, switches, shots from distances, headers, set plays. These are the longest themes we’ve given our players where they have to have the answers.
“It’s one thing to speak about it in theory, but another thing to deliver it on the grass. What they’ve done is an unbelievable achievement. I’m so proud and happy for everybody, especially the players and the backroom staff that they were able to see and enjoy this afternoon, which was an unbelievable result.
“We must not forget City have scored more than 100 goals, we kept a clean sheet and we looked solid. As you said it wasn’t a stolen point, it was a deserved one”
