Terzic declares no days off for Dortmund following loss: "We need to lay this to rest."

BVB head-coach Edin Terzic certainly didn't want to be answering questions about his third league defeat so shortly into his second tenure as the team's trainer. 

The 39-year-old declared himself most displeased with his team's discipline and revealed that, after the poor second-half, he would not be giving them a day off before the upcoming Champions' League fixture. 
Borussia Dortmund will be facing FC Sevilla on Wednesday in the Champions' League midweek. After what Edin Terzic saw from his side in the second half of Saturday's loss away at Köln, there will be not day of rest on the tight turnaround. The reason for this is because the team disobeyed his instructions ahead of the second half.

"We addressed matters at the halftime break," Terzic huffed into the Sky microphone, "We said it would be extremely important how we start the second half. Then we concede the first corner after what feels like eight seconds because we're not secure on the ball, because we're not ready."

"If you see how we contested the duels during the first 15, 20 minutes of the second half, then we should not be surprised that we conceded two goals," the BVB continued, "We always pump brakes on our joy, precisely because of games like today. It repeatedly occurs that we simply give away games that we completely control.

"This is why Dortmund isn't getting to the top over all these years," Terzic concluded, "We will address it again. We will try and learn our lessons from it. We will talk again about the fact that we need to show a reaction and finally lay this to rest."
