Klopp: Nurnberg draw a 'fair result'

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp conceded a 1-1 draw against lowly Nurnberg in the Bundesliga was “a fair result”.

However, the 46-year-old German partially blamed the need to inject ‘freshness’ into the squad for the result.

Dortmund’s Marcel Schmelzer opened the scoring with a stunning free-kick but Nurnberg hit back through Per Nilsson to earn a point for the home side.

The result left the door open for Bayern Munich to join Dortmund at the top of the table after the defending champions crushed Schalke.

After the game, Klopp told the club’s official website that it was an intense game, praising his side’s fighting spirit.

"We did not want them to overwhelm us, so we tried to bring some freshness to the starting line-up," Klopp said.

"So we are not unhappy with the point. It was an intense game with many duels.

"After the break, we had to make two changes again and we had a weaker period in which we clearly did not defend well enough.

"But we came back into the game well after conceding a goal and had some really great chances.

"But it was a fair result. The Bundesliga is a tough business and my team fought well today."
