Sommer: Nothing worked for us

Borussia MG goalkeeper Yann Sommer has struggled to explain his side's below-par performances this season following a 3-0 defeat at home to Hamburger SV on Friday night.

The Foals went into Friday's clash on the back of three consecutive defeats in the Bundesliga, the most recent of which saw them suffer a 2-1 loss to Bremen at the end of August.

And they were unable to halt the run of disappointing results as Hamburg cruised to a convincing victory at Stadion Borussia-Park, with Pierre-Michel Lasogga bagging a first-half brace before Nicolai Müller made sure of the result with a 52nd-minute goal.

"It's really hard to think of what to say after a game like this," a perplexed Sommer told the Bundesliga website.

"We expected a lot from the game, but nothing worked for us. We just didn't play well. I'm struggling to come up with an explanation as to why it's going so badly for us.

"We're not playing well and HSV didn't actually have to do a lot to win the game. It's tough to take, but letting our heads drop won't help. We will continue to train hard and keep fighting to rediscover our form."

The result leaves Lucien Favre's men rooted to the foot of the Bundesliga table with zero points and goal difference of minus nine.
