It's bows and arrows versus bazookas - Klopp
8th August 2013 12:27pm BST
Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has said trying to compete with Bayern Munich is like using a bow and arrow against a bazooka.
The BVB boss recently saw one of his best young players leave for the European and Bundesliga champions this summer when Mario Gotze signed at the AllianZ Arena for £32 million. Klopp told German newspaper Welt am Sonntag that wrestling back the Bundesliga title they won the season before last will be hard, but BVB can take their motivation from having a trophyless season.
When asked what it would take to win the Bundesliga, Klopp said: "An incredible amount. Bayern were probably the best team in the world last season. But despite that they could not beat us in the two games we played in the league. And maybe we can grasp a certain energy and motivation from the fact that we did not win anything last season.
“We have bows and arrows. And when we aim precisely, we can hit the target. It's only that Bayern have a bazooka. The probability that they will hit the target is clearly higher. But then Robin Hood was apparently quite successful."
Klopp has at least kept hold of striker Robert Lewandowski, despite him only having one-year left on his contract, and has added forwards Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to his squad in an attempt to upgrade his weapons.
