Klopp: 'Extraordinary' Dortmund will not ease up

Jurgen Klopp has rubbished the idea that Borussia Dortmund will take it easy in their two remaining Bundesliga fixtures, with the DFB-Pokal final in mind.

BVB are already guaranteed to finish as runners-up to Bayern Munich, meaning they will go straight into the group stage of next season's Champions League.

Given Dortmund will face the Bavarians in the DFB-Pokal final in Berlin on May 17, it has been suggested that Klopp's men will take their foot off the gas for the final two rounds of the Bundesliga season.

However, the coach says he wants his players to maintain their momentum, having picked up 16 points from their last six games.

“We have noticed that this season is one of the better ones," he told his club's official website, alluding to the fact that Dortmund's potential 71-point haul would have clinched the title in eight of last 19 seasons.

"We have picked up an extraordinary amount of points during the last period.

“But there are still six points to play for, and we want to get them all."

Dortmund host Hoffenheim on Saturday before wrapping up their Bundesliga campaign at Hertha Berlin next weekend.
