Jurgen Klopp dissatisfied with the result against Arsenal- UCL News

Having suffered a 2-1 loss to Arsenal and crashing out of the Champions League, Borussia Dortmund manager, Jurgen Klopp, has shown dissatisfaction at his team’s performance. He also hailed Arsenal skipper, Robin van Persie, on grabbing yet another brace, taking his tally to 33 goals in 2011.

Borussia Dortmund were dumped out of the 2011/12 UEFA Champions League after going down to the Premier League side, Arsenal. Jurgen Klopp’s men travelled away for their group F clash on Wednesday, November 23, at Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal emerged as easy 2-1 winners, courtesy, a brace from their skipper, Van Persie. Shinji Kagawa scored a late consolation goal for the reigning German champions.

Klopp opined that his team relaxed a bit after the goalless first half and as a result found themselves 1-0 down after just four minutes from restart.

He reckoned that the Borussians themselves had plenty of scoring chances, but, lacked proper finishing. The manager confidently stated that had his strikers made best use of their opportunities, the result could have gone in his team’s favour.

The tactician criticised his team for not concentrating hard in a must-win encounter, demanding a much improved performance in their last group game against Olympique Marseille. Even though, the match would hold very little importance, but, a third place finish will be at stake in group F.

While talking to Uefa.com after Wednesday’s game, Klopp further mentioned:

"We had some really good moments in this match, but obviously we made a couple of pretty bad mistakes. Our good spells were right at the beginning of both halves and we had some great chances. But we also made it too easy on our opponent at times. We played well on the wings and we had a couple of crosses, but there was just nobody on the other end.”

“We took the right measures, but Arsenal have an amazing home record in the Champions League and they would not get that without being a really great side." The manager concluded.

As a result of win over Dortmund, Arsenal have gone top of their group F with 11 points from five games while the Black Yellows are rooted at the bottom with four points.
