Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp, who took his side to the UEFA Champions League Final last season, believes that Arsenal can win the tournament.
Klopp was speaking after his side was beaten on its own turf by Arsenal 1-0 in Germany. The Dortmund manager said:
“They are young, healthy and good technicians.
“They won a clever game and could go to the final and win it – as long as they don’t play against Bayern Munich.
“We had 11 shots before they scored and sometimes it was like they were defending with four legs, but football is a game of results.
“It is difficult after the game, but you have to look forward.
“It is a very strong group and the positive news tonight is that two wins and we will qualify.”
