FIVE QUOTES FROM Borussia Dortmund head coach Jurgen Klopp who announced Wednesday he was leaving the club at the end of the season…

“When Borussia Dortmund last won here 19 years ago, most of my players were still being breastfed,” in February 2011 after his young Dortmund team claimed their first win in Munich for nearly 20 years with a 3-1 victory over Bayern.

“It could have been a bit warmer,” when asked if Dortmund’s 5-2 win in the 2012 German Cup final, when Robert Lewandowski scored a hat-trick for Borussia against his future employers Bayern, was the evening he had hoped for.

“Other mothers also have beautiful sons who can play a bit. To anyone who is feeling nervous I can only say: relax,” to calm Dortmund fans after Mario Goetze announced he was leaving to join Bayern in April 2013.

“If we win, it won’t mean that we are the best team in the world, only that we have beaten the best team in the world,” he said before the 2013 Champions League final, which Munich won 2-1 and went on to claim the Club World Cup title.

“Finishing the first half of the season in 17th place felt like how going on holiday and sleeping on a bed of nails must feel,” Klopp said in January 2015 with his side second from bottom in the Bundesliga.
