Lucien Favre on Dortmund's loss to FC Köln: 'We lost our patience'

Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre explains what went wrong for his team in Saturday's surprising 1-2 loss to FC Köln in the Bundesliga.

"Köln were very organised. Their approach was to sit back, they played well. We lost our patience a little bit and sometimes rushed it," Favre said after the game, according to the club's website.

"We should've played with more tempo, passed the ball with more tempo. And we were lacking the correct movement. We had too few clear-cut goalscoring chances. We were expecting a difficult game – and that was the case. Conceding the two goals from corner-kicks is a tough one to take. They flicked on the ball towards the back post twice. We lost, and the result is the only thing that counts."
