Last season, Borussia Dortmund came very close to the Bundesliga Silver Plate, but in the final round they failed to win against FSV Mainz 05 and had to sadly cede the championship to their great rival Bayern Munich.
In the new season, Dortmund continues to disappoint fans after the last 2 defeats against Bayern Munich and a reverse loss against Stuttgart. Currently, coach Edin Terzic’s team is ranked 5th after 11 rounds and is 10 points behind top team Bayer Leverkusen on the rankings. It can be said that Dortmund’s ability to win the Bundesliga championship this season is unlikely.
According to a report by Sky Germany, sports psychologist, professor Dr. Rene Paasch said that Dortmund players are facing psychological barriers and they need to seriously solve these problems before they fall into trouble. This situation gets worse. “I always noticed that,” Paasch said Borussia Dortmund have difficulty coping with the pressure and expectations very big for the Ruhr region football team.”
“But if they don’t happen, the opposite becomes clearer. The team is not consistent, the players’ psychology is unstable and there is a lack of effective coordination on the field.”
The German psychologist added that Die Schwarzgelben has top quality players in the world but they do not have chemistry with the rest of the team: “This is often overlooked in football and in Dortmund.” , the team spent a lot of money on good players but I have the feeling that they don’t contribute anything to the overall play of the team.”
Paasch then mentioned head coach Edin Terzic: “The coach’s leadership style, communication ability and ability to empathize with the players also play a big role. I still think he has leadership weaknesses.”
Next, Paasch turned to the issue of Dortmund’s identity when he said that Dortmund’s players lacked the determination to win every time they entered the German derby: “How can they continuously lose to Bayern? If they If we have the right attitude, they will show it on the field or maybe they have the mindset of losing not only in the game but also in everyday life.”
At the end of the talk, Dr. Paasch said that the entire club needs to look at the current results to soon have a solution and change the situation the club is facing. The international break will be the time for coach Terzic and his students to reflect on the problem and prepare well for important matches against Leverkusen and Leipzig in the Bundesliga along with the final two matches in the Champions League group stage against AC. Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.
