Weidenfeller: Dortmund still on course for title

SoccerNews in General Soccer News 28 Apr 2011


Roman Weidenfeller is confident Borussia Dortmund’s slip-up against Moenchengladbach will not stop the club from winning the Bundesliga.

Dortmund could have clinched their first league title since 2002 with victory over relegation-threatened Gladbach last weekend, but a shock loss and a win to closest challengers Bayer Leverkusen kept the title race alive for now.

Leverkusen are five points behind with three games left in the season, but Dortmund can seal the title if they defeat Nuremberg on Saturday and Leverkusen draw or lose to Cologne.

While Leverkusen’s results are out of their hands, Dortmund goalkeeper Weidenfeller believes the club can win all three of their remaining games – against Nuremberg, Werder Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt – to make their success a certainty.

“Winning is everything and we will be going for it,” he said.

“We still need the support from all our fans like we’ve had throughout the season. We just need to put in a great performance, but I am positive that we can do it.”

“We want to win all three games from now on, especially the two at our stadium.”

“We are very disappointed with the result (against Moenchengladbach). We deserved more, but we have to live with the defeat now and want to attack again in the next game.”

“The most important thing for us now is to win, and I strongly believe in our victory in our next game.”

“It will be a very difficult game, because Nuremberg wants to get into the European places next year, but we are prepared and we know that we are the better team.”
