Borussia Dortmund suffered another disappointment in the Bundesliga and their captain did not hold back in his game assessment.

Marcel Schmelzer described his team’s performance as a joke and ‘really shit’ after his side lost 2-1 to Werder Bremen in the German top-flight.

Bosz’s side remains without a single win in their last eight Bundesliga fixtures, even losing to Werder, who were the second-bottom before their clash with Borussia. Even though Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored one for Dortmund, becoming the highest African goalscorer in the Bungesliga history, goals from Maximilian Eggestein and Theodor Gebre Selassie sealed the three points for Werder Bremen.

Speaking to Sky after the game, Schmelzer did not hold back and gave an honest assessment of his team’s performance, who re now 13 points behind leaders Bayern Munich

“This performance is a joke from us players,” Schmelzer told Sky.

“And I’ve been saying for weeks that we cannot always just talk, but act. Then we play like that, that’s amazing.

“I stand here every time and people probably think: he says the same thing over and over again.

“I do not understand how such a thing can happen in such a game. That was really s**t.”
