After Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund, 1-0, in the German Cup, Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp chided Bayern for spending their way to success.

"At the moment, it's a bit like what the Chinese do in industry," Klopp said. "They look at what the others are doing and they imitate it, but with more money and different players."

Coach Jupp Heynckes, who is steering Bayern to a likely Bundesliga title after two-straight Dortmund crowns, fired back:

"When Juergen one day gets the pleasure of coaching Bayern Munich or Real Madrid, he will realize what it means and how much it is a completely different world," said Heynckes, who has coached both clubs. "Maybe, then he will see things a bit differently. Bayern has existed for a bit longer than Juergen Klopp has been a coach and have always had their own style of playing. It's very important that one knows how to show some dignity in victory and, especially, in defeat."
