Odegaard: Being back in the Champions League is huge

Martin Odegaard spoke to TNT Sport after the 4-0 win over PSV in the Champions League.

Here’s what he had to say.

What was the most pleasing aspect of the performance?

I think the way we played, you know. I think you saw the motivation, the energy straight from the start. You know, to be back in this competition is huge for us as a club. And I think you saw it on the pitch today. We really enjoyed it. And yeah, we played a good game. Of course, some things we can still improve, but it was a solid performance and a great start to the competition.

Mikel spoke all week about standards and wanted to make a statement, especially in game week one. Do you feel that that was achieved tonight?

Yeah, I think it was. I think it was, you know, we’re in this competition to compete, we’re in this competition to fight, to go all the way, you know, so I think it was a great start and we have to keep working hard and we’ll see.

Take us through that 4th goal

Yeah, I was eager to get on the scoresheet there and got a good ball from Reiss. My first touch wasn’t good enough so I took another one, and then yeah I found the space down in the corner and it went in so it was good.

Can you sum up what it felt like in there and the energy in terms of what the fans were giving you?

Yeah, I think it was amazing. You know, before the game, you could feel that this was a special game for everyone. And yeah, the atmosphere, you know, with the Champions League anthem and then everything around, our fans brilliant again. So we just have to thank them once again for everything they do for us, how much energy they give us and we’re all together. So that’s great to see.

Preparing for the derby …

Yeah, we have to recover now and get the legs fresh again. Another big game, so we have to be ready again and looking forward to that.

This guy is absolutely good. Kudos to Arteta and Edu. It’s not easy to grab such a player from RM with such a low price.

Nice of him to mention Reiss-Nelson whose pass honestly wasn’t that great but in whom I BELIEVE
