Emre Can confirmed Borussia Dortmund's longing for the title in the Bundesliga. "Everyone here in the city wants to be champions," said the 29-year-old national player on Sky before BVB's game this Saturday (6:30 p.m. / Sky) against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Before matchday 29, the Westphalians are two points behind leaders FC Bayern. The Munich team, who have already been eliminated in the cup and in the Champions League under new coach Thomas Tuchel - once at BVB - play three hours ahead of Dortmund on Saturday at FSV Mainz 05.
"Got to win our games"
"We'd be stupid if we said it differently. It's the truth: we're two points behind Bayern and there are still six games left," stressed Can. But you also know "that we have to do more for it. We have to win our games. And then you will see what happens in the end".
BVB have already suffered seven defeats this season. In 18 wins, coach Edin Terzic's team drew three times. Most recently at VfB Stuttgart with 3: 3.
Can said about the mood after the remarkable game in Stuttgart with a 2-0 and 3-2 lead: "Anger, disappointment, ambition - everything is there. But we have to look ahead, the starting position has not changed." On the day of the match, Bayern did not get beyond a 1-1 draw against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
