Lukasz Piszczek has said he believes his injury absence played only a minor role in Borussia Dortmund’s struggles since September.
“I don’t think the team depends on me.
“A lot of things happened at that time, and all of them led to us not being that successful any more.
“We never were at 100 percent, not even in the beginning when we still won matches. In the second phase of the first half [of the season], we then ran out of luck.” He said.
Piszczek, who joined Dortmund from Hertha Berlin in 2010, is set to return when BVB restart their campaign at home to Wolfsburg on Jan. 13.Having featured in 275 competitive games for the club, he hopes to finish his career at the Wesfalenstadion.
He is under contract until 2019 and said: “I would love to add another year and, if BVB are up for it, we’ll certainly do it.”
