Klopp: Bundesliga is like the Scottish Premier League

Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp believes that Bayern Munich's dominance this season in the Bundesliga, is a bad omen for the future, and believes the Bavarian sides monopoly on resources is a major problem.

Klopp expressed concerns that the Bundesliga will become a one-horse race akin to the Scottish Premier League if resources continue to be piled in to Bayern Munich.

Bayern were the runaway champions in the German league this season having won the title with six games to go – earlier than any team has ever won the Bundesliga.

Bayern Munich’s president Uli Hoeness recently told reporters that he feared the German league was heading towards “Spanish proportions” with the league being dominated by two teams. However, Klopp believes the dominance is heading more towards the extent of the SPL.

He said to reporters: "I fear Scottish proportions more than Spanish proportions. 

“If Hoeness does not want 'Spanish proportions', maybe he should dispense with a few players rather than signing them." 

Klopp hinted at an unfair distribution of resources towards the side Pep Guardiola will inherit. He hopes that his Dortmund side, that won back-to-back titles before Bayern ran away with the title this year, can "get a piece of the cake.”

The other side involved in the chase of Bayern Munich is Schalke 04, and their general manager has an issue with Bayern's pursuit of Germany's rising stars. 

Horst Heldt said: "FC Bayern have been dominating the league for years.  

"I would not have a problem if FC Bayern said they would no longer be after young German talent. But if I proposed this plan, they would say: 'Heldt is nuts.'"
