Jurgen Klopp urges his Borussia Dortmund side to learn from their mistakes of last season and become more clinical to reclaim the Bundeliga title.

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has called on his side to learn from the mistakes they made last season and become more clinical.

Dortmund finished runners-up to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga and also came up short to their German rivals in the Champions League final.

Klopp has urged his side to cut out "unnecessary" lost points, pointing at Bayern's 25-point lead last season.

"We want to learn from the mistakes we made last year," he told reporters. "This is our most important aim.

"We conceded far too many goals, we were 25 points down to Bayern - even though we didn't lose against them in the league.

"So we lost 25 points against all the other teams and I remember countless lost points that were absolutely unnecessary."

Dortmund have added Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to their squad this summer.
