Beloved manager Jurgen Klopp could probably run for Lord Mayor of Dortmund right now after his Borussia Dortmund team secured their spot in the Champions League final. If he did, his players would likely be the first to sprint to the ballot boxes after he set them loose to party in Madrid on Tuesday night.
“We play Bayern at the weekend, but we also have a day’s more rest than them, so I won’t deny the team that chance to go out and celebrate,” Klopp said after his side secured their spot in the Champions League final. “Nuri [Sahin] apparently knows his way around Madrid, or so I’ve heard. I’ll stay in the hotel and have a few beers there.”
“I’ll definitely not deny the players’ celebrations – what kind of muppet would I be if I did?”
If Klopp were Lord Mayor of Dortmund, his first order of business would definitely be to throw a big, beer-filled party. And there would be dancing. Lots of dorky, goofy dancing.
