Burki hits out at critics


Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki has hit back at his critics after his display was criticised in the 3-1 defeat to Tottenham.

Spurs secured all three points on Wednesday, with Harry Kane grabbing a brace as he starts to find his best form.

Peter Bosz’s men had chances of their own but they failed to capitalise and were punished at England’s national stadium.

After two of Spurs’s goals came from near post efforts, Burki was criticised for his display as he failed to help his side avoid defeat in their Group H.

However, the 26-year-old has taken to Instagram to hit out at comments in the media.

He said: “Yesterday was not our best day, was not my best day! But we’ll keep our heads up, and here a few words for the people who think they are goalie experts.

“It’s a myth. Something I have never understood. One day someone just came up with it and said a goalkeeper should never be beaten at their near post.

“Anyone who has played in goal knows it’s a huge area and you try to cover the whole goal.”
