'We Are Not Bayern Hunters: Dortmund President Concedes BVB Need to Lower ...

Borussia Dortmund's president Reinhard Rauball has expressed his disappointment at the club's performance this season and admitted that they are long way from catching up with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich .

As the season draws to a close, Dortmund sit in third place - a massive 24 points behind the leaders Munich.

As questions around the club's future continue to be asked, Rauball believes that a new direction and view is needed.

Speaking to German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung (translated by Bavarian Football Works ), Rauball said: "I think we would be wise if we did not view ourselves as 'Bayern-hunters', at least not in the short term.

We’ve lost—in no particular order—a Hummels, for a while a World-Cup-winner in Götze, Lewandowski, Aubameyang, Dembélé, Mkhitaryan, Gündogan.

However, despite Rauball's disappointment, he doesn't feel that the Bundesliga should pursue a proposed playoff system designed to increase the league's competitiveness.

Giving a clear verdict on the matter, he remarked: "You should not change the structures simply to undermine the position that a successful club has created for itself.
