Borussia Dortmund have confirmed the appointment ofÂThomas Tuchel who has replaced the legendary Jurgen Klopp at the helm of the Bundesliga side. Jurgen's decision to leave Dortmund sent shock waves around Europe, while at the same time alerting the continent's top clubs to his summer availability.
Klopp was appointed Dortmund manager back in 2008, and has since gone on to win back-to-back Bundesliga titles (2010/11 & 2011/12), the DFB Cup, DFL-Supercup (twice), and the T-Home Super Cup. Klopp also memorably led his troops to the 2012/13 Champions League Final, where they suffered a heartbreaking last-gasp 2-1 defeat to fierce domestic rivals Bayern Munich.
Numerous drawns but few defeats has seen Borussia Dortmund enjoy a strong run of results. Defeats against Benfica and Darmstadt 98 are the only black marks on a run that has seen them amass wins against VfL Wolfsburg and Werder Bremen while sharing the spoils versus Hertha Berlin, Mainz, Augsburg, 1899 Hoffenheim, FC Koln and Real Madrid
