BVB, News: Julian Brandt complains about “Stuttgart vibes” against Gladbach
With an intermediate result of 4:0 after just 32 minutes, nothing should have burned out at BVB in the home game against Borussia Mönchengladbach. But the Foals scored two more goals in the second half and even had a chance to make it 3-4 just before the end, before Giovanni Reyna made it 5-2 in added time.
Offensive player Julian Brandt was correspondingly critical after the game. “We were very efficient in the first half, which made us dominant,” he said. But: “In the second half, that fucked me up a bit, if I’m honest.”
After the break, BVB “no longer acted seriously” in front of the opposing goal. “And then you got a bit of a light Stuttgart vibe, 4: 1, 4: 2, then it burns all of a sudden and Gregor still holds you very well.” Dortmund only played 3:3 against VfB despite being outnumbered and leading several times.
Incidentally, in the fight for the championship, Brandt had no hope of support from arch-rival Schalke 04: “You always have a bit of residual hope. But, I’m from Bremen, I know that when Werder Bremen plays in Munich, it usually doesn’t work out. And It was similar at Schalke recently. You can assess it realistically.” In the end, Schalke clearly lost 6-0 in Munich.

The rumors about Bellingham should not affect the team. “And it doesn’t matter whether you or your colleagues or whatever newspaper tries to distract us. We won’t allow that,” emphasized the Dortmund coach. After all, he then asked for understanding for his attitude: “We respect your job, we respect your questions, but the only answers we can give are those on the pitch.”

It’s just as good “but also playing at the top of the table,” he emphasized. And explained: “In 2023 we will be the best team in Germany.”
