thumbnail Hello,

Michael Zorc and Jurgen Klopp are far from pleased with the defender being out for the season, while Marco Reus has revealed his disappointment at results

Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has branded news that Neven Subotic will miss the rest of the season with an knee injury "sh***y" as the club fight to get their season back on track.

The Serbia centre-back was ruled out for six months after tearing his cruciate ligament in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Wolfsburg.

BVB chief executive Zorc told Bild "it's a really sh***y day" upon hearing that his club would be without the first-team defender for the remainder of 2013-14, while coach Jurgen Klopp admitted "it is terrible news".

Dortmund have now lost successive games - at home to Arsenal and away to Wolfsburg - and they are at risk of going out of the Champions League and falling behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

"We have lost two important games in a row," Reus said. "That's not good."

Dortmund's next two games could have a massive impact on the outcome of their season - first up is a home clash against Bayern Munich before a must-win European clash with Napoli.

BVB now trail the Bavarians by four points in the Bundesliga, with Pep Guardiola's men running out 3-0 winners over Augsburg on Saturday.
