Mkhitaryan played a great game, Dortmund coach said after 1-1 draw with Anderlecht

Borussia Dortmund topped Group D of the Champions League by drawing 1-1 with an RSC Anderlecht side.

“I am delighted with parts of the game,” Dortmund coach Jürgen Klopp said after the match. “We started brightly, had a good phase after the break and scored a neat goal. We only worked out the lineup this morning, as we had some last-minute injuries. Some players really had to work hard today to make it through the game. But we have secured first place in this group, the maximum possible goal.”

“Henrikh Mkhitaryan played a great game and got into positions to score goals. He isn’t managing to do that [score] right now, but many players have gone through this before. It is important to stay cool and absorb the pressure. At some point it will just happen and he will score two or three. It is similar to our general situation. It hurts him because he thinks he isn’t helping the team. That’s wrong – he has helped the team a lot today,” Klopp said.
