Borussia Dortmund manager Juergen Klopp is a big fan of goalkeeper Mitch Langerak.

The 24-year old Australian will step into the suspended Roman Weidenfeller's boots for his 11th appearance for the German club when they head to Augsburg for the 2013/14 Bundesliga opener on Saturday.

So far, Langerak has not been a part of a losing Dortmund side indicating that Klopp is very comfortable with his keeping stocks.

"You think you are getting a beach boy from Australia, but what you actually get is an unbelievable hard worker," said Klopp.

"Mitch is a very competitive character: goalkeeper is one position which we can react without problems when there are any injuries."

Dortmund's director of sport Michael Zorc added: "Mitch is the competitive type: he's strong both on the line and in the air, plus he's brave."
