Klopp in awe of record streak

14 April 2012 21:09

Borussia Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp has praised his side after they set a new record for games without a loss in the Bundesliga.

The German champions overturned an early deficit to record a 2-1 victory away to Ruhr rivals Schalke on Saturday, and in doing so, made history as they extended their unbeaten streak to 25 games.

After falling behind to a ninth-minute Jefferson Farfan strike, Lukasz Piszczek and Sebastian Kehl both found the back of the net to give the visitors victory.

Dortmund now hold an eight-point lead over Bayern Munich after the Bavarians were held to a 0-0 draw by Mainz on Saturday evening.

Klopp was thrilled with the record set by his team.

"Twenty-five games? That's crazy! What we have done is unimaginable," he told reporters after the win.

With his side on the verge of retaining their league title, the former Mainz man refused to get too carried away.

"It (winning the league) is more likely with this success today. As long as we have no reason to, the champagne corks will not be popped just yet," Klopp said.

"The whole thing is difficult, as we have seen today. Why should we be relying on events elsewhere when ideally, we could play the best season of our lives to earn the points. Then we will see if we will be eventually celebrating.

"We pressed hard today in what has been in an incredible week after the wins against Wolfsburg, Bayern and Schalke. That's why I'm completely satisfied right now."
