Jurgen Klopp drops mic and walks out on interview after Real Madrid defeat
The Borussia Dortmund boss took offence to a question asked on German TV.

BORUSSIA DORTMUND MANAGER Jurgen Klopp walked off German television last night after being angered by a question from the interviewer.

The German boss watched his side lose 3-0 to Real Madrid in their Champions League quarter-final first leg at the Bernabeu and told ZDF presenter Jochen Breyer “ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer”, 101 Great Goals report.

Klopp’s men have a mountain of work to do in their quarter-final second leg on Tuesday, if they are to stay alive in the illustrious European competition. Gareth Bale, Isco and Cristiano Ronaldo all got on the scoresheet at the Bernabeu, with some suspect defending costing Dortmund for the latter two goals.

And Klopp was furious his side now have a three-goal deficit, claiming they could have been much closer heading back to the Westfalenstadion.

We practically assisted two of their goals ourselves,” Klopp said. “You can concede the first goal, that was a well-executed attack, but we made it too easy for their second and third goals.”

We didn’t defend the way we wanted, we left too much room and weren’t as compact as I would have liked.

“But we also have to understand that we played one of the best teams in the world today.”
