"We lacked the fortune that would have given us a deserved point"

Reaction from Ralf Rangnick, Lukas Klosterman and Péter Gulácsi after the home defeat to Borussia Dortmund.

Ralf rangnick:

  • "It's acceptable to concede against a team that has so much attacking firepower like BVB. Our problem today was that we couldn't score a goal ourselves, despite the numerous chances we had.

    At any rate, it was a very entertaining game for those watching, because both teams had numerous chances. It could have been 4-4 in the end.                      

    If we carry on playing like we did for large periods of today's game, I think it's possible for us to win as many points in our remaining 16 games as we did in the first half of the season. Our aim is to be in the top four at the end of the season, and to progress one or two rounds further in the DFB-Pokal."

Péter Gulácsi:

  • "It was an unfortunate defeat. In the second half, we were a lot more attacking, trying everything we could, and we had chances to earn at least a point. Despite the scoreline, we can still take a lot from the game and build on this result."

Lukas Klostermann

  • "We had a tough start, but took control in the second half. Unfortunately, the ball just wouldn't fall for us, and we lacked the fortune that would have given us a deserved point."
