Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp was forced to defend BVB management after striker Robert Lewandowski launched another attack on the club’s decision makers for blocking a move to Bayern Munich. Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Klopp said of Lewandowski: "For me what he does is a thousand times more important than what he says because what he does needs no interpretation."

On Wednesday, Lewandowski told a Polish newspaper that he felt betrayed by Dortmund’s management. "I was disappointed because people within the club said one thing to my face and then later it was different to what was agreed," the 24-year-old told Rzeczpospolita. "When I myself promise something then I keep my word. I was always fair towards the club, I always give 100 percent."

Responding to the striker’s comments, Klopp said: "Whatever is left to be discussed will be discussed internally. The idea is to close this subject. Everything is in order. Nothing has changed since yesterday or the day before yesterday. I am convinced we will clear up everything in the coming days."
