Marco Reus: “We have to keep our heads up.”

Speaking to, Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus has urged his teammates to keep their head high following their recent 2-2 draw with Werder Bremen.

“We have to analyse things the way we always do. We have to stay positive and work hard. These are the things that have made us strong. We have to cut out the mistakes. And we have to keep our heads up because there’s no let-up in the schedule,” said Reus.

On the mood in the dressing room after the final whistle…

“Of course the mood wasn’t good. We’d all imagined coming away with a different result. Especially at home, we really wanted to win the game. Each individual is really disappointed. But as I said, we’re going to analyse the game now and need to keep our heads up. The match in Prague on Wednesday will be a really tough one.”

On Borussia Dortmund’s defence…

“We have to exert more pressure and nail the opponent to the wall. But if you conceded goals as we did, it’s not easy to score three or four goals and go in front. Sometimes we have to be able to win 1-0 or 2-1. We can’t do that right now.”
