Klopp praises Dortmund intensity

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp was pleased with the intensity shown by his team during their 4-0 win over Augsburg on Saturday.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the star for Dortmund as he notched a hat-trick on his Bundesliga debut, before a penalty from want-away striker Robert Lewandowski completed the rout.

Klopp felt his side did well to cope with a physical Augsburg outfit and was particularly impressed with the team’s performance in the second half.

“It was difficult for both teams because the conditions were not easy, the pitch was bad,” Klopp told the club’s official website.

“The opposition was extremely strong. I pointed out to the team that the intensity would be different than in all the other games, including the Supercup.

“In the second half we were more consistent. We scored great goals and ended the game confidently.

“Not many leave here with a 4-0 win. That it was possible for us makes us proud.”

Lewandowski was delighted to start the season with a goal and an assist for Aubameyang’s third, but stressed that the side must focus on the challenges ahead.

“We are happy, and so am I,” he added. “I created a goal and scored one.

“And the important thing is we have three points. It’s a good start, but we have a long season ahead of us, and we have to play even better than today.

“Augsburg was a strong opponent in the first half. This was not an easy game.”
