Dortmund After captain Marco Reus’ criticism of the system after the 2-1 defeat at RB Leipzig, the anger in the Borussia Dortmund team is understandable for ex-international Jürgen Kohler.
“The system question is totally overrated for me because at the end of the day the players make the difference. That day Leipzig was simply more bile and poisonous. The players have to question themselves and not question the system. That is the decisive factor, ”said the 56-year-old ex-Dortmund in an interview with“ Spox ”and“ Goal ”.
Marco Reus’ frustration is understandable. But for him the question of the system is “always an alibi protection claim. I can’t do much with that, ”admitted Kohler. So far, “the season is still okay in terms of results, even if you have now lost to Leipzig,” said Kohler. But the 105-time national player is certain: “The offensive power has been lost in the last few games. Haaland didn’t play there, he’s the difference player for Dortmund. The fact is: If Haaland is missing, then a significant part of the game is missing. “
Speculations about a return of ex-trainer Edin Terzic could “not be discussed away. That’s no excuse for me either. They are professionals and they have to deal with the situation, ”says Kohler.
