Peter Bosz disappointed with Dortmund’s defending

Borussia head coach insisted the reason behind the final result was the team’s poor performance at the back.

Borussia Dortmund boss admitted that the lack of organisation within his ranks proved costly for his team after they lost 3-1 to Tottenham in the Champions League.

Despite Andriy Yarmolenko’s stunning equalizer, Harry Kane was once again irrepressible and scored twice for Tottenham to wrap up the final 3-1 in favour of the Premier League side.

Dortmund will be hosting Real Madrid in their next Champions League game and their manager Bosz is well-aware that they need to improve the way they defend as soon as possible if they are to face Los Blancos.

“It was clear today that we weren’t well organised at the back defensively. I thought we started well, dominated and controlled the game with good football.” the Bundesliga club’s manager stated, according to Goal.

“But when you play like that, with space behind the back four, you have to defend it, and we didn’t do that well enough.

“We were not there for the decisive moments twice in the first half. We controlled the match, had good possession, but ultimately failed. Twice our defence was not well organised: that must not happen.

“Pressure is always coming from the outside. We played well today, but did not win. We must defend better in the next game. But we played good football today.”
