sport news Jurgen Klopp throws his weight behind Borussia Dortmund in former club's ... trends now
Jurgen Klopp has revealed he is rooting for former side Borussia Dortmund to pip Bayern Munich to the Bundesliga title this season, insisting that after an 11-year barren spell 'the trophy simply belongs' back in the city.
Klopp enjoyed a memorable seven-year stint at the helm of Dortmund between 2008 and 2015, having led the club to back-to-back league titles in 2011 and 2012 and spearheaded their surprise charge to the Champions League final in 2013.
His last campaign in Germany ended with a whimper after Dortmund slumped down to seventh place, but Klopp has continued to keep a keen eye on their results.
Indeed, Bild claim he has regularly called CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke to congratulate him after victories, while Klopp is also familiar with manager Edin Terzic.
This weekend, Dortmund travel to face Augsburg in the first of their two remaining fixtures, while Bayern, now coached by Thomas Tuchel, take on RB Leipzig.
