BVB, News: Streich annoyed before the Dortmund game
SC Freiburg head coach Christian Streich was annoyed at the press conference before the game against BVB because of Breisgau’s miserable record in Dortmund.
In ten games as a guest at BVB, Streich scored just one point with Freiburg, with a record of 6:34 goals. He’s not desperate, says Streich, but “it annoys me. Not every day. But it annoys me when I hear that.”
The 57-year-old also stated that there “would have been better times” for an away game at BVB. But he added that he was confident of being able to “stand up to Dortmund”: “We have the opportunity to improve the statistics. It’s about time.”
