Dortmund decide against Klopp appeal

Borussia Dortmund have decided not to appeal against Jurgen Klopp’s ban for their Champions League match against Arsenal.

Jurgen Klopp argues with a UEFA official before being sent off at Napoli.

• Dortmund injury crisis

Klopp received a two-match ban after an angry exchange with the fourth official in Dortmund’s 2-1 defeat at Napoli, already serving the first game during Dortmund’s 3-0 win against Marseille.

Dortmund changed their minds about appealing the decision after considering UEFA’s grounds for the judgement on Tuesday.

“My main motive is that I don't want to divert the attention from my wrong behaviour. I stand by my responsibility,” Klopp is quoted as saying on the club’s official website.  “I accept the decision with a heavy heart.”

On Oct. 22, in their away game at the Emirates, Klopp’s assistant Zeljko Buva will take control from the sidelines.

And Klopp reiterated his trust in his long-time assistant, saying: “I have full trust in Zeljko Buvac, he is the best coach I ever met in my life.”
