Borussia Dortmund Coach Goes Ballistic on Official During Champions League Loss (GIF)
Last year, Borussia Dortmund made a magical run to the all-German final of the UEFA Champions League. Sure, they lost the championship to Bayern, but they did trounce Real Madrid, and things were definitely looking up.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go that well for Dortmund in the first game of their 2013-14 Champions League campaign. Last year’s runners-up had to open up on the road against Napoli, who finished second in Serie A in 2012-13, and the Italians came away with a 2-1 victory.
So how did Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp take the loss? Um, not well. The guy, who is normally pretty easy-going and jovial, went totally berserk on Wednesday night when Napoli scored their first goal. And the target of his wrath was not one of his own players or coaches, but the fourth official—who must have been terrified.
Take a look:
In case you are wondering, no, there was nothing wrong with the Napoli goal. It was perfectly legit.
And yes, Klopp definitely got ejected for this.
Hopefully the guy finds some serenity before his club’s next UCL match, or it’s going to be a long season for Borussia Dortmund.
