Dortmund got off to the best possible start after striker Robert Lewandowski put them ahead in the third minute but Furth were level barely two minutes earlier through Zoltan Stieber. Lewandowski struck his second of the game in the 15th minute to put his side in the lead again, before Mario Gotze doubled Die Borussen's advantage on the stroke of half-time.
The second half saw Klopp's men dominate majority of the possession and they managed to see the game out and pick up three valuable points as they closed the gap on current Bundesliga league leaders Bayern Munich to nine points.
Despite the lack of ambition showed by Dortmund in the second half, Klopp claims that he is pleased with the way his side managed to hold on to their lead by controlling the game and not allowing Furth a chance to get back into the game.
"In the first half we saw a spectacular side of football, and in the second half the controlled one," Klopp was quoted as saying by the official Dortmund website.
"It´s a fully deserved result even if we could have conceded an equaliser through Sararer before our third.
"It was really close. In the second half we told the lads that Fürth only pose a threat if we give the ball away easily as they can then take advantage of their pace.
"Their transition play is really good and they made life uncomfortable for us at times.
"In the second half, however, we put in a controlled performance, and I´m very happy about that."
Midfielder Sven Bender echoed his manager's sentiments and praised his team-mates for maintaining their focus throughout the game.
"We had a lot of chances in the first half and you could see that Greuther Fürth always posed a threat when we were not focused enough," Bender declared.
"But we survived these situations well. In the second half it was a brutal game of patience which probably wasn´t good to watch.
"But it was a successful game for us, and that´s why we are all very pleased."
