National player Julian Brandt believes in a leap in performance from Borussia Dortmund under coach Marco Rose in the coming season.
“If the coach gets proper preparation with a lot of healthy players in the summer and can work with them in detail, we’ll take a few more steps forward,” said Brandt in an interview with the Funk media group.
The 25-year-old rejected criticism of Rose. “I don’t think the team doesn’t suit the coach’s football. But if you want to develop the style of play that Marco Rose stands for, the pressing, the high attacking, the constant activity, full-throttle football in both directions – then you have to at least spared the bad luck with injuries. And that really wasn’t us,” emphasized Brandt.
With BVB, for whom Brandt has been playing for three years, he wants to win titles soon. “Every player wants to become champions, win the DFB Cup and repeat in the Champions League what people experienced here in 2013. How realistic that is is another question. But the will, the greed for it, is there with everyone.” said Brandt.
