Borussia Dortmund general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke said there is no conflict between him and first-team coach Jurgen Klopp.
Both Watzke and Klopp are strong characters, but when questioned on their relationship, Watzke was quick to talk about the mutual trust between him and his coach.
“No, we never argue. Jurgen, Michael Zorc, and I maybe discuss things together. But we have total basic trust that is always there,” Watzke told Bild.
“We know we can rely on each other and are very close together.”
When Watzke was asked about whether he would like the club to have a wealthy owner pumping millions into the team, he said it is more enjoyable going about their business without an extortionate budget.
“We have our way, we are independent and free. It’s also fun to be creative and to not buy everything,” he said.
