"We're conceding too many goals, and that's why we're not in a better position at present," said Dortmund boss Michael Zorc after Saturday's defeat to Leverkusen.

Borussia Dortmund 'gave away goals too easily' in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Bayer Leverkusen, says the club's sporting director, Michael Zorc.

'Die Schwarzgelben' were leading 3-2 towards the end, but missed the chance of putting pressure on RB Leipzig and Bayern München at the top of table as they allowed Leverkusen to turn the game around.


"It hurts today and it's very disappointing because we performed well until the 80th minute. We deserved to be leading 3-2 by that stage, but then we were too passive in the decisive moments," said Zorc, as quoted by the club.

"It was clear that Bayer have quality going forward. But all in all, we gave away the four goals too easily. That's been a theme for us for a little while. We're conceding too many goals, and that's why we're not in a better position at present," he added.

Dortmund are third in the table, three points behind league leaders Bayern München.
