Borussia Dortmund had 'too many individual interests' - Roman Weidenfeller

Borussia Dortmund had 'too many individual interests' - Roman Weidenfeller
From ESPN - April 12, 2018

Roman Weidenfeller has criticised his Borussia Dortmund teammates, telling kicker "too many individual interests" prevented the club from succeeding this season.

Weidenfeller, 37, is set to retire this summer and take over a new role at the club, which he joined in 2002.

And going into his final Revierderby against Schalke, the reserve goalkeeper said Dortmund have not been a team this season.

"Nobody constantly played at his highest level," Weidenfeller said. "To be honest, I had the impression that there were too many individual interests and not the unconditional will to carry out the collective plan."

Dortmund started well under head coach Peter Bosz, taking 19 points from their first seven games, but failed to win their next eight, leading to Bosz's sacking and the appointment of Peter Stoger.

Despite losing only to Bayern in the Bundesliga, Stoger has been under pressure from the media and supporters since signing a deal until the end of the season in December.

It appears unlikely that Stoger will stay beyond the summer, and CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has also announced there will be several changes in the squad once again.
