Schalke’s Felipe Santana slams former coach Jurgen Klopp as ‘stupid’
Schalke’s Felipe Santana has slammed Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp as ‘stupid’ and claims he rushed Mario Gotze back into training too early.
Gotze was ruled out of their Champions League final defeat to Bayern Munich and Santana believes Klopp was responsible for aggravating the injury.
“Our coach was stupid. Mario felt a knock in the game against Real Madrid and was then taken to a Munich hospital,” Former Dortmund defender Santana told ESPN Brasil.
“When he returned, the coach let him train on the Tuesday. He should not have done so because there was an important game on Saturday [the Champions League final].”
Bayern won the game 2-1 and Gotze is now set to complete a move to the Bavarian giants this summer.
