Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel praised his predecessor Jurgen Klopp following the 4-0 thumping of Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday.

Tuchel’s first Bundesliga game at Signal Iduna Park was one to savour for the Dortmund faithful, with goals from Marco Reus and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a Henrikh Mkhitaryan brace sealing a magnificent victory.

Tuchel was quick to pay tribute to not only his players, but also the set-up that former boss Klopp, who left the club at the end of a disappointing campaign last term, passed on.

“The base that Jurgen Klopp has left for me is outstanding,” said Tuchel, who has led Dortmund to four victories in his first four competitive games.

“I knew that we had to go right to our limit to beat Gladbach. But that (result) was not expected. I am very happy.

“I also want to thank the fans, it was an incredible atmosphere.”

Monchengladbach, who finished third last season, were no match for the hosts throughout, and were three goals down after 33 minutes.

Mkhitaryan then added a fourth – his second of the game – just after half time, and star performer Reus insisted the result was no less than Dortmund deserved.

“The team performance was perfect from start to finish,” he said. “Gladbach didn’t play badly, we just performed really well.”
