The Mainz match was very disappointing. It was 1-0 for the longest time, and Dortmund will be kicking themselves that they didn’t add a second goal. Eventually Mainz equalized late on, and the frustration then set in for players and fans alike.
It was another missed opportunity to keep pace/gain ground on those above BVB in the table. When the chance went by, the Captain certainly wasn’t happy.
Speaking to Sky after the game, Marcel Schmelzer had some choice words for his team. ESPNFC has them here.
"We could have moved up to third place," Schmelzer said. "I'm not disappointed, I'm angry. That's not what we aim for."
If Schmelzer was willing to put that anger across in a post-match interview, you can only imagine how he was in the dressing room afterwards.
Hopefully that anger can fuel motivation as Dortmund move forward. There are crucial games coming up against Leipzig and Hertha, that BVB can not afford to let slip.
