BVB, News: Hamann misses self-criticism after city bankruptcy

In the 1: 2 in the Champions League at Manchester City, BVB sold very well for long stretches, but gave up the game in the final phase with two goals conceded. For skyexpert Dietmar Hamann, the protagonists’ statements after the end of the game were not tenable.

“I’ve rarely seen City so helpless and aimless as in the first half or the first 75-80 minutes,” said Hamann, showing respect for Dortmund’s performance. But: “You can’t lose a game like that. When I hear afterwards that Sebastian Kehl says he’s proud of the team, Edin Terzic speaks of a very good game, Emre Can of an extremely good game. Then I miss one A bit of self-criticism.”

Hamann’s conclusion: “In my opinion, this lack of self-criticism is fatal.” Only Mats Hummels got on DAZN-Mic annoyed about the passivity of the goals conceded. “For me, Hummels is the only one who is self-critical and who names things as they are. The others should do the same,” Hamann demanded. He “I have the feeling that it starts like last season. You don’t play well, you win games, that’s wonderful and if you lose, then you talk yourself into it.”

BVB, News: Hummels still in Flick’s field of vision
