Borussia Dortmund still processing Liverpool loss, admits Thomas Tuchel

The Reds progressed past the Germans in the Europa League last week.

Borussia Dortmund are still processing the loss to Liverpool, manager Thomas Tuchel has admitted in comments published by FourFourTwo.

The Germans were eliminated from the Europa League last week in a scintillating affair at Anfield.

They had led 2-0 and 3-1 in the game, before a late rally from Jurgen Klopp’s side saw them go on to win 4-3 and progress to the semi-finals.

It was a hugely demoralising loss for Tuchel’s side, especially given how well they had played in the game and he admits they are still processing it as a team.

"It'd be hypocritical to say we've processed the Liverpool match already,” FourFourTwo reports him saying.

"We are on the way to processing it, although it's not the end of the world either. The best way to get over it is to win more games.

“We have to drastically improve our performances. It wasn't just the Liverpool match that showed we have to be more physically robust."

It is easy to see why Tuchel’s side would still reeling from the loss to Liverpool given it looked like they had won the game comfortably at one point.

Now though they must focus on getting back to winning ways as soon as possible as they hunt down Bayern Munich in first place in the Bundesliga.

Pep Guardiola’s side are currently seven points clear of their rivals in second, but with four games remaining that gap could be reduced should they slip up at any point.

That seems unlikely though, given that Bayern have only been beaten twice in the league all season.
