Under coach Lucien Favre, the football federator Borussia Dortmund has not yet lost a mandatory game. The Swiss is still not fully satisfied with his system.
“It takes time. It will not only take one, two or three weeks,”Favre said at the press conference and added:”We do not just need a system. We need to find the best mix of who gets along best.”
Which position is best for Marco Reus, the BVB coach left open:”He can play anywhere. He’s more of a nine-and-a-half than a nine. At the moment, it is. He can also do it on the page.”
On Saturday Borussia meets the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. Whether new Paco Alcazar will be present is not yet clear. However, it is certain that Omer Toprak and Raphael Guerreiro will fail.
Favre announced some rotations for the game. I said we’re gonna start rotating. We’ve done this before in the Champions League. Saturday you will see,”said the 60-year-old.
The coach also warned against offensively strong Hoffenheimer. I expect Hoffenheim to play in 5-3-2.”They have his”fire-dangerous through the side”and have”a lot of power in front of them”.
“There is another new spirit in the troop”
Sports director Michael Zorc also found praise for the coming opponent.”There is a new spirit in the troop”
Hoffenheim tries to make the game himself. They represent offensive football. The 56-year-old, who highlighted the advantages, said: “This also gives us the opportunity to assert ourselves better than last time.”
The fact that the BVB was having problems in the beginning does not worry Zorc at all. This is perfectly normal if you have a new coach and changes in the middle field.” We have good defensive stability. We can certainly improve ourselves offensively. It is not forbidden to emit more gate danger,”he explained the march route.
The aim is to help a new mentality in the team. There’s another new spirit in the troop. This can also be seen at the late gates we have reached,”Zorc praised.
