Edin Terzic: ‘Everything feels very empty’ – Borussia Dortmund coach reacts after losing Bundesliga title to Bayern Munich

Borussia Dortmund somehow missed the opportunity to win their first Bundesliga title in over a decade as they stumbled to a dismal draw against Mainz.

Bayern Munich defeated Koln through goals from Kingsley Coman and Jamal Musiala to lift their 11th consecutive German championship.

BVB only had themselves to blame for failing to capture the title. They went into the game with the lead at the top of the table and an 82% chance of winning the title, only to bottle it.

Captain and long-term club servant Marco Reus fell to the grass dejected at the full-time whistle. He and his teammates had missed the chance to knock Bayern off their perch.

Head coach Edin Terzic tried to console his team and rally them in front of the Yellow Wall as he fought back tears.

The 40-year-old was disappointed with his side’s showing but congratulated the champions.

Terzic said (via Sky Germany): “It’s the most honest title you can win when you’re up there after 34 games.

“Everything feels very empty. However, I know that tomorrow is a new day, tomorrow will continue. We were 90 minutes away from bringing the trophy to Dortmund.

“We were a goal away from that – from tomorrow, we’ll be 34 matchdays away again. We’ve been on a really good path in the last few weeks.

“Now, it’s about using the next 34 matchdays to finally make it.”

BVB now have to digest today’s events. They had prepared a party to celebrate the title but watched their dreams dissipate.

Mats Hummels said the next few days will be brutal. He believes they will need time to get over the disappointment.

While Bayern will be happy to win the title, they will know BVB handed it to them on a plate.

Despite claiming top spot, Bayern have dismissed CEO Oliver Kahn and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.

They have replaced Kahn with Jan-Christian Dreesen and are looking for Salihamidzic’s replacement.
