Edin Terzic and Sebastian Kehl praised yesterday’s memorable comeback victory of Dortmund against BMG.
On Saturday afternoon, when Borussia Dortmund staged a 3-2 comeback victory against a Westphalian club with a Prussian-inspired name, Borussia Mönchengladbach trainer Gerardo Seoane lamented how his side allowed a 2-0 lead to slip away.
The head coach of BMG also expressed disappointment over substitute Christoph Kramer’s missed opportunity to equalize late in the match.
Seoane told reporters: “We had a better grip on the game and even had a chance to punch back late. We have to work on not letting leads slip away from us. All-in-all, it was a good game from us. In the end, however, the result is not satisfactory.”
The atmosphere in the Dortmund camp was evidently distinct. BVB trainer Edin Terzic and club sporting director Sebastian Kehl showered their team with praise following the comeback victory.
While Kehl didn’t hold back on criticizing the team for the first two Gladbach goals, he ultimately acknowledged the squad for their resilient spirit in staging a comeback.
“When we conceded goals, we weren’t good in covering space, tackling, and retaining possession. We can and must do better. We nevertheless demonstrated comeback qualities. That’s emblematic of the team this season,” Kehl added.
Terzic said: “Considering the phase we were coming from, it’s important that we proved that the game isn’t over when we fall behind. I’m very pleased with the morale, energy, and belief the team showed on the pitch. Huge compliments.”
