After the shock 3-1 loss to Hamburg, Thomas Tuchel revealed Dortmund deserved to lose and pay for their display.
Goals from Lassoga and Holtby, with Hummels getting an own goal to worsen the situation, which makes Tuchel’s annoyance valid.
A consolation goal from Aubameyang could do nothing to change the face of the game and the mind of Tuchel who slammed his men for a horrid display.
“The first half was dramatically different to how we want to play, what we demand of ourselves,” he told Sky Sports Deutschland. “We deserved to be punished.
“We started carelessly. With this body language, this performance, we won’t win anything anywhere.”
Dortmund full-back Marcel Schmeltzer agreed with his manager’s assessment, acknowledging the team did not perform to their typical standard.
“It was a lesson,” he said. “If you are not 100 per cent, you can’t win in the Bundesliga.”
