|[1.12.] For Jürgen Klopp Saturday´s clash with Bayern was "a very intense game of football with two teams pushing the other to their limits." After the match the BVB coach talked about Roman Weidenfeller, Bayern´s goal and how it could have been prevented as well as Tuesday´s UEFA Champions League tie with Manchester City.|
|BVB coach Jürgen Klopp on the game:|
It was a great game of football, a very intense game of football with two teams giving everything and pushing the other to their limits. Given the closing stages, we are more pleased with the draw than Bayern can be.
After his introduction Felipe Santana needed a bit to get into the game. At this stage, Roman salvaged the draw for us. We had some very good phases of play, especially shortly after the interval when we could have scored a goal. Overall, it was a good game from us and from Bayern, and the draw is fair result."
...on Roman Weidenfeller´s performance:
Roman is an exceptionally good player. I think it´s understandable that he every now and then is disappointed not getting called up to the German squad. Today every Bayern player congratulated him for his performance. The team often delighted him, today he delighted us.
... on Bayern´s goal:
I think that tactically Marcel Schmelzer is the best full-back in Germany, but in this situation he has to play Kroos offside. Toni Kroos then makes a great move, and his effort is unstoppable.
... on the Champions League game against Manchester City:
I´m happy that we have already secured qualification to the last 16. Neven Subotic has an adductor problem,Sebastian Kehl couldn´t play and Sven Bender played despite carrying a knock. Let´s see who we are able to field. It´s a tough phase for all of us.
