Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp is not happy with Turkey chief Guus Hiddink's decision not to field Nuri Sahin.
"Things seem to be going extremely well for Turkey if they can afford to send a player like Nuri to the stands. I'm not only very surprised with Guus Hiddink's decision, but I'm even finding it hard to believe this actually happened," Klopp was quoted as saying by Bild.
"Nuri put in a sensational performance for Dortmund in the match against Stuttgart. I really don't have a clue why he's having such a hard time breaking into the team with Turkey."
Sahin himself was pretty disappointed as well, but made it clear that he respects Hiddink's decision.
"Of course, I'm disappointed that I didn't play. However, the coach is the one who makes the decisions. All I can do is do my utmost to convince him of my class."
