Jurgen Klopp credits Dortmund’s improved form to his resignation


Borussia Dortmund beat Hertha Berlin 2–0 on Saturday to extend their unbeaten streak to four matches since manager Jurgen Klopp announced that he will leave at the end of the season. This continued Dortmund’s rebound from being bottom of the league up to 10th in the table, and now to seventh place and a chance at qualifying for the Europa League.

After the match, Klopp demonstrated his always wonderful sense of humor. From the BBC:

“If I’d known before the start of the season that we’d put such a winning run together, I’d have announced my departure back then,” Klopp said.

“Seventh place feels brilliant.”

The world would be a better place if we were all a little bit like Jurgen Klopp.
