Dortmund coach Jürgen Klopp was told shortly before the draw that Thon was in charge of draw together with the DFB’s general secretary Helmut Sandrock. The BVB’s coach immediate response was to ask the interview why nobody from Bayern’s local arch rivals 1860 München was participating during the proceedings, after he had started off his sentence with a broad grin saying “I’ll be damned”.
BVB boss Joachim Watzke wasn’t too enthused about the draw, telling German broadcaster ARD:
I would have preferred to play Bayern at home. But, we’ll have to go into this match and stand up to the challenge and handle it somehow.
Watzke jokingly added:
But, we didn’t expect anything else from Olaf Thon.
