Magath also heaped praise on Spanish veteran Raul, who scored two goals in the 3-0 win over St Pauli.
“It is encouraging that we have recorded our first home win,” he told reporters.
“The opening goal was critical because there was a period in which we were anxious. I am glad that Raul has settled in the Bundesliga. I’m happy for him and think that tonight was a kind of redemption.”
