Klopp inspired by Dortmund adventure

Borussia Dortmund have taken one point from two group stage games yet coach Jürgen Klopp is still thrilled by the challenge: "Worst-case scenario, we'll enjoy the experience," he said.

Borussia Dortmund have had a tough reintroduction to life in the UEFA Champions League. The 1997 winners returned to the European big time this season as German champions after a nine-year absence, and after two matches they have just one point and one goal to show for their efforts.

However, coach Jürgen Klopp is drawing strength from the fact they reached the group stage in the first place. "There's no guarantees but the chance is there for us to progress," he told UEFA.com. "Worst-case scenario, we'll enjoy the experience, take the money and focus on the Bundesliga. So all doors are open, and we're ready for it all."
