Dortmund's Bosz on loss: 'The goals we conceded were much too soft'

Dortmund's Bosz on loss: 'The goals we conceded were much too soft'
From ESPN - September 13, 2017

Disorganisation in defence was to blame for Borussia Dortmund's 3-1 Champions League group stage defeat at Tottenham on Wednesday, says manager Peter Bosz.

Son Heung-min opened the scoring before Harry Kane answered a wonderful Andriy Yarmolenko strike with two goals of his own to claim the decisive victory at Wembley.

Speaking after the match, first-year boss Bosz conceded his side must improve to get a result in Dortmund's next UCL match, against defending champions Real Madrid, in a fortnight's time.

"I am disappointed because we should have got more out of the game," Bosz said. "Above all, we played well in the first half, but were sloppy on two occasions.

"Both teams typically play according to the same philosophy, that is, they want to press high up the pitch and play out from the back.

"We did that very well. We applied pressure far up the pitch, but then the defence needs to be well organised, which was not the case when the first goal was scored.
