Borussia Dortmund coach Marco Rose has challenged Julian Brandt to improve his performances, telling reporters he has high expectations for the midfielder.




"I expect a lot from Jule - consistency, sustainability, and seriousness in his game," said Rose ahead of Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Augsburg.

"He worked well during the time he was injured. Now he has to do this on the pitch."

With Mahmoud Dahoud and Giovanni Reyna both unavailable, Brandt is expected to start in central midfield alongside Jude Bellingham today.

The 25-year-old has scored 12 goals and provided 15 assists in 92 games for 'Die Schwarzgelben'.
