Already immediately after the final whistle on Wednesday, when Leitsch in the 120th minute with his too short return to Manuel Riemann had caused the defeat, the "Leitsch" language choirs were heard everywhere at the Castroper Straße.

Also against the SPVGG Greuther Fürth showed the 20,000 spectators that they would stand behind their protégé - and the 23-year-old paid immediately. After Eduard Löwens free kick to the aluminum, Leitsch was full of gold and pressed the ball over the line (35.).

"That I just after the mistake a game then my first Bundesligator make, in such an important game, is of course Mega," the center defendant showed himself at the "Sky" microphone overjoyed.
What a roller coaster ride of the feelings, still three days earlier he had probably had to experience one of his darkest days as a professional, then he meets in the 13th Bundesliga game for the first time for the club, for which he has been on the ball since 2008. "I got a lot of popularity, from the team and the fans, that was really incredible," said Leitsch, who described his goal as a "simple gate".

The fact that the VFL then went to the climber duel as a winner from the square, crowned the day of the center-back, who did not want to talk about the class content despite the 32 meters of his Bochumer. "We can not rest, we still have to collect a few points," says Leitsch, who grabbed "today a very important step".
The next step can go to the Bochumer after three home games in a week next Sunday in Frankfurt (5.30 pm, live! At Wednesday), with a threesome, the VFL even pulls past the Hesse.
