Peter Bosz’s assistant Hendrie Kruzen talked about his time at Borussia Dortmund in an interview with Dutch outlet Tubantia. He talked about positively about the club and that there are “no hard feelings” but he also spoke about their problems that ultimately led to the dismissal of the coaching staff.
Kruzen regrets to not have signed more players during the summer because they wanted “to get to know the team first”, although they planned to correct that and sign two central defenders and one striker in the winter break. The Dutch coach also talked about his disappointment in Sokratis’ lack of leadership in critical moments, especially when Piszczek went down with an injury, a moment that is seen as a breaking point in Dortmund’s season for Kruzen.
