Langerak: 'My football is going forward'

Dortmund - With Australia's stint at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil in the books, Borussia Dortmund’s has reiterated his love for the Bundesliga and BVB.

“I’m going to stay at Dortmund”

Acting as deputy to No1 goalkeeper , the 25-year-old enjoyed his most successful campaign to date in 2013/14 and is keen to build upon his strong performances during the 52nd Bundesliga campaign.

Langerak made four winning appearances in Germany's top flight, featured in Dortmund's opening two UEFA Champions League outings and kept three cleans sheets in the DFB Cup last season. Having only made nine appearances in all competitions for the Westphalia side in the three previous years, the Australian was delighted to have equalled that tally in just one term.

"I'm very happy where I am and the club are happy with me as well," claimed Langerak in an interview with Australian newpaper Herald Sun. It appears to be a perfect match for the towering keeper, who has developed his skill set since joining BVB, proving himself as a dependable alternative between the sticks for head coach Jürgen Klopp. “I’m going to stay at Dortmund, I’m happy there and my football is going forwards.”

"No reason to change"

The 25-year-old enjoyed his first taste of European football this year after entering the fray against SSC Napoli on the cusp of half-time following Weidenfeller's red card, before completing the full 90 minutes and keeping a clean sheet in the following encounter with Olympique de Marseille.

Klopp has demonstarted a willingness to put his faith in Langerak in big-game situation and, for the shot-stopper, that is more than enough reason to stand by the club with whom he has won two Bundesliga titles and one DFB Cup. “I’ve had some really positive chats with the head coach,” elaborated Langerak. “I’m happy with the way things are going so there’s no reason to change.”
