Evaluation of Jin Minzai
Picture Hull: “He was brilliant at Old Trafford with Upamecano and that was the case today. They showed what they can do. After losing to Frankfurt, Kim Min-jae and Upamecano showed a good response-their physical fitness and concentration are there. We are very happy for them. ”
How do you evaluate Pavlovich’s performance? Can he often play the role of defensive midfielder?
Tuchel: “Today has proven that he has our trust. Let’s not get carried away. He had a very good game today. Pavlovic has performed well as a substitute in the past games and had a very enjoyable half hour for Dortmund. For example, before today, he had never played a double midfielder with Guerrero. Guerrero did not have much rhythm after his injury. Jamal had just returned from injury and had not started many times-so it was expected before the game. Lack of mobility and some lost balls. When Pavlovich struggled a bit in the early stages of the game, others helped – and then he settled into the game and was as dominant as the rest of the team. His set pieces are good. I’m very happy for him, he’s training well, he’s a great guy and his heart is in the right place. He did a great job. ”
