Midfielder Sillah elated with Kickers Emden's promotion

“We deserved to be promoted after a long season of hard work with good chemistry. Everybody at the club worked so hard and played their part in our success in a difficult season.”

Sillah hailed the Kickers fans!

“The fans of Kickers Emden are always great and played a big part in our success. They are there every game at home and away, always singing the motivating songs and supporting us all the way – even if the team is not playing well. That is so motivating and uplifting for us as players.”
