Koln's player, Kingsley Ehizibue, made some statements to the microphones of the German club's official channels after the match. Here are his words:
"It was a lot of fun today against a very good opponent, we played well, but we didn't convert our opportunities. But Milan did it coldly. You can see their individual qualities. The coach told us before the game to have fun and play football. Even against a good opponent, things went pretty well for us."
