Borussia Dortmund, Fullkrug: “Corner of the 1-0 super stupid, we should have rejected it”

Morale is low at Borussia Dortmund. The Champions League final lost against Real Madrid yesterday at Wembley (2-0) did not go down well with several of Terzic’s players, aware of the excellent performance offered against the blancos by Ancelotti and for whom only the goal was missing. Overall it was a high level performance even in the coverage phase, except for the first goal conceded by a header from Carvajal.

“The corner is super stupid”, the first hot comment from Niclas Füllkrug in the post-match in London at the microphones of Sports1. Although the 31-year-old striker of the yellow and blacks preferred not to lash out at the direct marker of Real’s goal-scoring side, instead focusing on Kroos’ strike from the flag: “I can’t go into details, I believe that the player has been assigned and that we should have somehow push back the corner”.

“The corner kick – continued the German – is obviously super stupid if you look at it, it’s exactly like that and for Toni (Kroos, ed.) very well controlled. In my opinion we did a lot to press him again and again, so that he doesn’t could play his feared diagonal. I think he only managed to play two or three times – analyzed the attacker – in the first half and then we were always there, immediately putting pressure on the ball. Yes, we invested a lot in defending this way and for this reason it is a shame that in the end we were not able to reward ourselves.”
