with a 3-1 victory.

The German had previously stated he did not intend to take a sabbatical. When announcing he was to step down in April he said: "It's not that I'm tired. I always said that when I believe I am not the perfect coach anymore for this extraordinary club I will say so."

Klopp won two league titles and one German Cup in the seven years following his appointment as Dortmund manager in 2008, also reaching the Champions League final in 2013 where his side were beaten by Bayern Munich.
