‘We usually arrived quite drunk’ – Man City star makes shock revelation about lifting Bundesliga title
Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan made a surprise revelation that he and his former Borussia Dortmund teammates often arrived drunk at training at the end of their Bundesliga championship winning season.
Ex Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp let his players celebrate their first Bundesliga title for nine years with four games of the season left – while they had a six point lead.
“After the games we often went out with eight to ten players, many of us being single. In training the next morning, we usually arrived quite drunk – and you could see this,” Gundogan revealed in excerpts, published by Bild, from the not-yet released Jurgen Klopp biography written by journalist Raphael Honigstein.

“I think we’ve done this in the right measure and it bound us together even more.”
Dortmund ended up winning the league title by seven points ahead of runners-up Bayer Leverkusen.
We aren’t sure what Pep Guardiola would make of players turning up to training drunk at City.
Gundogan joined City from Dortmund in the summer of 2016 for a £20 million fee.
The midfielder of Turkish origin spent much of last season out with a knee injury but has since returned to action.
The 26-year-old is currently on international duty with the Germany national team.
