Tuchel: `We had luck in the game against Bayern!`

The Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel confessed that his boys had great luck in the last night`s win against Bayern Munich with 3:2.
`The yellow-black became the first team in history, who will play in the final mentioned by handball picks for the Cup of Germany in four consecutive seasons. It is striking that two years ago they again beat Bayern at their stadium Allianz Arena.
`At the first 20 minutes we started very well and we led deservedly in the result. We had two more positions through Aubameyang and Guerreiro, we were doing generally very well on the field.`, began Tuchel.
`Then, however, Bayern started playing better and we managed to hold the ball and we were not stable in one on one battles. The Bavarians failed to score a third goal before the break and we should be happy that we got the only two goals in the first part.`
`Bayern had its moment for the third goal and in the second half. If they had scored a goal, then it would become very difficult and almost impossible for us to get back in the match. And now we were going to be defeated completely deserved. We had great luck in some situations. But luck is a part of football.`
`Those situations affect such big matches and our self-confidence back, we were playing around better. We were better in the one on one battles and retention of the ball. We did not dominate, but we were a lot better on the pitch. We got two great goals and we defended bravely.`
&It is an amazing feeling to win, because we had the hardest task - to qualify for the final, passing through Munich. Our victory is priceless in terms of our development team and building the character of the team.` added Thomas.

Sakho has not used any doping

The French player Mamadou Sakho, who last season was with suspended rights, was examined for a substance, which is not in the list of prohibitive ones, said UEFA.
The central defender of Liverpool, who is currently on a loan at Crystal Palace, missed the end of last season, including finals in the UEFA Cup against Sevilla and the European Championship in France after he allegedly failed the doping test on 17 March.
Sakho has used Higenamin, which is used for burning fat and calories in the body without the permission of the medical staff of the club. He has been punished with a suspension from participation in 30 days, initially at his own request, suggesting that the substance was in the prohibitive list of the World Anti-Doping Agency which entered into force on 1 January 2016.
But the analysis of the Commission of control, ethics, and disciplinary violations of UEFA assessed Sakho as innocent. In a letter, the laboratories in Cologne and Lausanne, as well as their communication with the World Anti-Doping Agency were criticized.
`It is totally understandable and it is not normal players to know what is allowed and what is not. But people who deal with it-laboratories, doctors, analysts, controllers, they are bound to know it. So it is offensive Sakho to be punished without fault.`, says the opinion of UEFA.
