Borussia Dortmund have made a woeful start to the season…
Jurgen Klopp has launched a scathing attack on his ailing Borussia Dortmund stars, who slipped to a fifth defeat of the season on Saturday, bemoaning that his men made it too easy for their opponents.
As the Daily Mail explains, the afternoon had started out so well for Dortmund fans, who saw Ilkay Gundogan lining up for the first time in 14 months and both Marco Reus and Henrikh Mkhitaryan back from injuries.
However, the trio could do nothing to prevent the 2-1 loss at Cologne, which plummeted the club into their ‘worst situation in years’, in the words of director of sport Michael Zorc, and Klopp did not beat about the bush either.
Speaking at the post-match press conference, he said: “We played a kind of football which is absolutely pointless. We misplaced so many passes in the first half and made simple mistakes which can be explained in a whole host of ways, but still should not be happening.”
Klopp continued, moaning: “We’ve just got to face the music once again. We just made it too easy for our opponents. We’ve got to eradicate these mistakes. Not tomorrow, not the day after but straight away.
“We are almost always scoring goals and if we didn’t concede any, then the situation would look completely different. We’ve got to resolve this and nobody’s going to help us.”
