I felt it was unworthy of the crowd and the team this year. I’m glad we did not go all out in the second half even though we never made a seriously ran. “

About his future, as he also has to leave Ulm privately: “I will definitely look past. I thought that the closer to saying goodbye from Ulm, the sadder it gets. But it’s actually a little different. I like to go. I hope I can appreciate those feelings in it has built up over the years, can save a little … I can not wait to show my kids everything and they make fun of dad peeing in the eyes and some crazy people wearing his shirt.

Per Günther, in his 500th BBL match for Ulm, before the match: “After we lost the 2nd match against Ludwigsburg, I got a lot of messages asking if there could still be tickets. I had the feeling that the belief in my immediate personal environment was not so great. Today it is 1 “Play do-or-die and the possibility that it will be my last. It will be a busy day for me personally. I hope to be in control during the game, spending the few minutes I play can also design decently.”

Today is the end of the season, but we are back next year.”

This is how Ulm will be without Per Günther: “We will miss a leader. A leader in the locker room and on the pitch. A guy who could talk to the team, who gathered the team and gave everything. We wanted him a better one Goodbye. We wish him all the best for the future. “
