Stoger Disappointed In Dortmund After Home Loss

Borussia Dortmund interim coach, Peter Stoger could not hide his disappointment following his side’s 2-1 loss to Salzburg in their first leg last-16 Europa League draw.

The Austrian club continued their impressive away run in Europe, with Berisha scoring two goals in the space of seven minutes after the break.

Schurrle pulled one back from close range before time, but it was too little too late, as the German outfit needs two goals to progress.

Stoger will hope for an improved display in the return fixture after seeing his side slip to their first loss in 2018.

“I didn’t like a lot about this match,” he told the media in his post-match press conference.

“The first ten-to-15 minutes I thought that we were pretty acceptable in the game, but this feeling got less and less. The team didn’t keep the speed high. So the game for the opponent became easier.

“Salzburg adjusted more and more during the match. They became braver and gained more confidence.

“In several moments we had the feeling we could change something about the result. But, between these good stages, our performance wasn’t very dedicated. I’m not happy with it.”
