Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has hailed the attitude of his substitute players following Saturday’s 3-2 win over SV Werder Bremen.
Dortmund found themselves trailing 2-1 after Alejandro Galvez and Zlatko Junuzovic had canceled out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s opener, but Shinji Kagawa and Adrian Ramos came off the bench to score and hand Tuchel’s men the points.
And, speaking after the game, the boss was delighted by the attitude of his squad, telling Sky Sports: “It is a great gift to have players on which one can rely, who are eager to get in the game.
“They cut back their ego and their resentment that they do not play from the beginning. Therefore, the biggest compliment goes to the players.
“We showed a great mentality and quality. We never got nervous and could always increase the pressure. It was a deserved victory, but also a lucky win.”
