Klopp applauds Stuttgart fightback
Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp claimed Stuttgart are the best side to have visited the Westfalenstadion this season after last night's dramatic 4-4 draw in the Bundesliga. Dortmund threw away a 2-0 and a 3-2 lead as they had to settle for a point, extending their advantage at the top of the table to six points over Bayern Munich.
And Klopp was full of praise for the visitors. "I don't think I have ever seen a game with so many twists and turns," he said. "It was a crazy game. Stuttgart are the strongest side we have had here in Dortmund this season. In the end, this is a point gained for me."
Stuttgart coach Bruno Labbadia was proud of his team for playing their part in such a dramatic game. "Games like this are what make it worth being a coach," he said on his club's website. "It is amazing how my side never gave up. My team never hid but rather raised their game."
Stuttgart director of sport Fredi Bobic added: "It is great how our team fought their way back into the game. Everybody got their money's worth here today."
