Marco Reus has dismissed suggestions Borussia Dortmund are suffering from a mentality problem after they drew 2-2 with Eintracht Frankfurt.
Dortmund twice surrendered the lead to Adi Hutter's side, slipping up for the second time in the Bundesliga this season to fall three points behind current leaders RB Leipzig.
And while Reus admitted his side lost their focus towards the end of the game, he hit back at claims they are lacking in mental strength.
"It's getting on my nerves," he said to Sky. "The own goal was a mentality problem? We defended stupidly in that situation, of course, but don't come around with your mentality s**t now.
"Every week the same s**t. This is about good defending and knowing that Frankfurt always can come back even if we are 2-1 up.
"We just have to stand against it better in the last five minutes. I don't know how the equaliser came about. I think by a throw-in, where we put ourselves in danger. That just can't happen.
"But do not come with mentality stuff, please!"
