Borussia`s manager predicts very hard season in the European best club`s competition
Borussia didn’t manage to reach its new triple crown last season, but there is no doubt that 2014/15 was successful, bearing in mind that they won two titles (Bundesliga and German Cup) and reached the final in the TTCLM. Despite 3:1 home win in the first final leg, they were beaten by Orenburg 3:0 in the returning match. The most successful European club ever opens its new TTCLM chapter this Friday (19.30 CET) at home, against Bogoria Grodzisk Mazowiecki.
“Last season we had a big chance to win the title but Orenburg took the cup away from us in the last moment”, commented Borussia`s manager Andreas PREUSS. “I hope that we can do it better this time. But first of all we have to be successful in group stage. This will be tight enough. And if we reach the quarter finals we have to beat other top teams. I think at least 50% of the clubs are able to win the TTCLM. So it´s a long way to be on the top of this competition.”
Patrick FRANZISKA had a problem with an injury in the first months of last season, but he managed to recover and played an important role in Borussia`s line-up during last spring.
“We are happy that the new season begins on Friday”, said young German. “The time since we played the last match in May was long enough although the upcoming season will be hard and long with Olympic Games at the end of it. Bogoria will be an excellent opponent which will show us directly the way for the group stage. I hope that we are strong enough to start successful into the new season.”
