Klopp’s rage costs Dortmund

09/18/2013  Naples, Italy

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp suffered a complete meltdown after his side conceded the first goal in a 2-1 loss to Napoli in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The German manager became indignant with the fourth official after his decision not to allow Neven Subotić back on the field of play in time before Gonazalo Higuain scored from a header at the half hour mark.

The Serbia defender suffered a cut that needed to be attended by the medical staff, and was running in late as the Neapolitans set up for the free kick which eventually led to the opener.

Last year’s finalists never fully recovered as Klopp was subsequently ejected, along with their goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller later in the half.

Italian forward Lorenzo Insigne added an unstoppable free kick for Napoli’s second goal, adding to the German misery.

Although they threatened to score on several occasions hitting the post, the only consolation for the visitors was an own goal from Juan Zúñiga.

The usual productive fervor of their manager, which is so often one of their greatest assets, for once cost the Borussians, leaving them with an uphill battle in what many are calling the Group of Death.
