At a press conference on Tuesday, Edin Terzic told of a one-to-one meeting with Karim Adeyemi. Borussia Dortmund’s coach also commented on Youssoufa Moukoko.
“We talked about it privately and with the entire team,” said Terzic. After BVB’s 2-0 defeat at Union Berlin on Sunday, Adeyemi questioned the switch to a back three after he was responsible for the second goal.
“He was very insightful,” said Terzic: “But we all conceded the goal. Not just Karim, not just Gregor Kobel, but the whole team. Too many mistakes were made before that. We didn’t give him enough space, he didn’t have a passing station – then he takes the heel.”
The 39-year-old explained that he was sure that Adeyemi would do better against Hannover 96. BVB is a guest in the second round of the DFB Cup at the second division team (Wednesday, 6 p.m. in LIVETICKER).
Overall, the analysis after the Union game was very clear, said Terzic. “It’s not fun for me to always have to answer the same questions. You can be sure that the boys already know what it’s about,” said Terzic and reported a “very loud” and “very clear” conversation with his Team whose performance fluctuations remain a great mystery.
Terzic also spoke about Moukoko. “We worked with him tactically and technically. I’ve got five scenes again that I’d like to show him. What he did well and where he can even improve. He’s made a big leap and we know that We. Now it is important to bring that onto the pitch regularly,” said the BVB coach.
