Borussia Dortmund stormed to a convincing 3-0 win over Bayern Munich today and Marco Reus has taken a swipe at Manchester United’s defensive performances against Bayern by praising Dortmund’s attacking ethos.
Under Jurgen Klopp, Dortmund have always played entertaining, attacking football and it was a performance in contrast to United’s defensive one that saw us get knocked out by Bayern this week in the Champions League.
“I think the way we played today was the only way you can get something against Bayern,” Reus said.
“Sitting deep doesn’t work.”
There is more than one way to win a football game but Reus is right to praise the attacking philosophy. It’s something that has been synonymous to United’s history but something that hasn’t been seen much this season.
Dortmund played with no fear against Bayern and it gave them the confidence to attack which clearly worked in their favour. Against our biggest rivals, we’ve failed to play attacking football which has been one of the most frustrating aspects of a dire campaign.
Reus also managed to grab himself a goal against Bayern today to take his tally to 19 goals and 12 assists in all competitions for Dortmund this season. Sign him up?
