Marco Reus (captain Borussia Dortmund)
"We have to apologize to all the people for the performance, I have no explanation for the first half, I do not know what we made there, we were really ashamed, we never, never again, that was absolute shit. We have to talk about that, but that's not the way it is, we did not manage to get away with a black eye, we got a good idea of it, the coach makes us great and we are responsible for showing our performance. " (DAZN)
Lucien Favre (Borussia Dortmund coach)
… to the game: "It was a disastrous first half of ours We were not good at ball conquest We get three goals That was unbelievable We wanted to do a lot better after the game in Munich The only positive thing was that we came back and got one 3: 3. We played well in the second half but it was not enough for us. "
… for refurbishment: "We'll analyze that together, it's necessary, we make too many unnecessary mistakes, we can not go on like that, we did not have the aggressiveness of winning the ball, we've seen the Paderborns turn too easy and play forward. We have to be more aggressive. "
… to the speech in the half-time break: "I said at half-time that anything is possible, I've always believed in it and I'm always behind the team, I know the draw is not great, but we still have a reaction, I try to think a little bit positively. "
… to the question of why he has set up only three trained offensive players with Sancho, Reus & Alcacer: "Alcacer was our top scorer, Reus too, and Sancho has scored goals and assists, he was fresh, the others played very late – Tuesday night, and Guerreiro was in the lead as well, with 20 in the left last season Played midfield and that worked. "
… on the question of whether the substitutions of Nico Schulz and Mo Dahoud at the half time performance reasons: "It was necessary."
