Bosz proud of table-topping Dortmund after Hamburg triumph

BVB returned to the top of the table with a 3-0 victory on Wednesday, much to the delight of their head coach who is off to a fine start

Peter Bosz heaped praise on Borussia Dortmund after his in-form team defeated Hamburg to return to the summit of the Bundesliga on Wednesday.

Dortmund regained top spot from Bayern Munich with a 3-0 victory at Hamburg, with Bosz hitting a personal mark by becoming the first Bundesliga boss to start with five clean sheets. 

Dortmund 5/1 to win Bundesliga

Shinji Kagawa, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Christian Pulisic scored at Volksparkstadion as Dortmund maintained their unbeaten start to the season.

Afterwards, the head coach – whose Dortmund side are a point clear of reigning champions Bayern – said: "I am proud of my team. This was not easy, it was even the most difficult game to date.

"We did not expect HSV to make so much pressure - no one has done that against us, including Tottenham," he added, referring to his team's 3-1 Champions League loss to Spurs at Wembley.

"If you do not concede a goal again and score three, you have to be proud of the team. And that's me. 

"I am very glad that we have won here."
