Paco Alcacer, who joined Borussia Dortmund on loan scored a goal in his debut match against Eintracht Frankfurt. However, the striker left the pitch with an ankle injury, confirmed by the Dortmund manager.

Alcacer scored on his debut but left the pitch with an ankle injury.

In Bundesliga’s match day, Alcacer had a great beginning with the German club. He was involved in Marius Wolf’s goal and later struck from 20 yards to seal Dortmund’s 3-1 win.

The Borussia Dortmund manager insisted Alcacer needed some time to adjust and also informed he hurt his ankle late at Signal Iduna Park.

“He hasn’t played all that much recently. He needs time to get to full fitness. We’re not sure exactly what happened, but at the end of the match, he, unfortunately, felt some pain on the back of his ankle.”

Meanwhile, Favre was with pleased with his side’s performance and with that win, they are now at the top of the table with seven points.

“They were a tough team to play against. The lead we took in the first half wasn’t entirely undeserved, but we were a bit lucky nonetheless. Although we controlled the match, I wouldn’t say we dominated it.”

The substitutions always were perfect and helped to seal the game, insisted on by the manager.

“In the second half we were really eager to get the score to 2-0 as soon as possible, but we had a lot of trouble keeping the ball and controlling the match against the opposition’s pressing game. We lost patience, and that’s what cost us our 1-0 lead. The substitutions gave us a sense of vigour. The goal which took the score to 2-1 was a really nice, well-worked goal. That’s when the team was firing once more. We’re really happy with the win.”

Borussia Dortmund’s rival, Bayern Munich will face Bayer tonight, and a win will take them to the top once again.
