Dortmund 'Ashamed' of Its Fans

MOST COMMENTED

Following Borussia Dortmund’s 3-1 win at Schalke on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp condemned the behavior of some of Dortmund’s fans, whose antics forced a delay to the start of the game. Flares and fireworks rained down from the stands as the players were starting to line up for the 143rd Revier derby, causing the referee to call the players back from the field.

"At that moment, I was really ashamed," Klopp said. "They were really terrible images. That really is not on and I cannot understand it in the slightest. It was not pleasant at all."

Dortmund general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke agreed, adding that there would be “repercussions” for the’ “anti-social behavior.” Nevertheless, he said it was right that the players applauded the traveling Dortmund fans at the end of the game. “There were over 6,000 of them there and we cannot punish 5,900 for these 100 hooligans," he said.

The win kept Dortmund in second place in the German Bundesliga, as Bayern Munich beat Hertha Berlin, 3-2, to maintain its one-point lead at the top of the standings.
