Klopp Delighted with 'Mature' Dortmund Win

Jurgen Klopp hailed his players’ “fantastic performance” in London on Tuesday, as Borussia Dortmund left the Emirates Stadium with a 2-1 win against Arsenal in UEFA Champions League Group F play. “It was a fantastic performance. We had an away game against Arsenal, who are in sensational shape at the moment, yet we managed to cause them a lot of problems. It was an open game which we ended up winning thanks to a fantastic move,” the Dortmund coach said after the game.

The move he is talking about came in the 82nd minute. With the score tied 1-1 and Arsenal enjoying a period of dominance, Dortmund broke free down the right and Kevin Grosskreutz’s cross found Robert Lewandowski, who coolly volleyed home to take the wind out of the Gunners’ sails and earn all three points for the away team.

“My team gave their all. We started very well, had fantastic work rate when not in possession and created some superb counterattacking situations for ourselves,” Klopp added. “Both teams then battled hard against each other, but we were always alert and ready to decide the game with one attack. After that happened, we did a great job [to hold on for victory], especially in the last eight minutes. It was a great performance, we were very mature.”
