thumbnail Hello,

The BVB boss was among others basking in the side's glory, as their 4-0 win over Freiburg meant they recorded the highest number of points in a single Bundesliga season.

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has hailed his team for its record-breaking Bundesliga title triumph this season following Saturday's 4-0 victory over Freiburg.

The emphatic win means the German champion end its campaign on 81 points, the highest-ever tally set by a club in the German top-flight.

Leading those rejoicing in Dortmund's excellent campaign, Klopp commended his team for making their successes look easy on the football pitch.

"We have, once again, fought well in two difficult games, but the team have made it look easy," said Klopp after the match.

"This has crowned our season. I told the guys today, 'we will not have 81 points given to us in the flesh after the game but the championship trophy instead'.

"If we look back in 30 years, we can do so knowing that, so far, no other club has earned more points."

Sporting director Michael Zorc had his say on Dortmund's record: "The previous record was 40 years old. This shows what a gigantic achievement that was. I can only salute the players."

Midfielder Sebastian Kehl had been plagued by injuries earlier in his BVB career, but after contributing to this season's title success, he stated: "This title victory is, for me, worth more than last year's.

"In addition, the team has accomplished more than last year because it was much more difficult this time round.

"Last year we became surprise German champions. This year the signs were somewhat different. The fact that we still have created several records shows that this team is intact."

Kevin Grosskreutz also could not hide his delight following Saturday's record-clinching victory and enthused: "I've dreamed of it as a little boy. Now I've become a German champion with my club twice. It's unbelievable."
 
Lastly, Lucas Barrios marked his last Dortmund appearance with a farewell message before his move to Guangzhou Evergrande: "Thank you to the club and the fans for these three great years. I'll never forget them."
