Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller is proud of pushing Bayern Munich all the way in the Champions League final on Saturday.

The 32-year-old’s efforts between the posts were crucial in keeping his side in the contest throughout, only to be undone by Arjen Robben’s 89th-minute winner, as Bayern ran out 2-1 winners at Wembley Stadium.

Weidenfeller hailed his team’s fighting spirit for matching the Bundesliga champions blow-for-blow for the majority of the 90 minutes.

“We’re proud to have given Bayern a real game tonight,” Weidenfeller said.

“We played well but it wasn’t meant to be.

Team-mate Mats Hummels weighed in with his own acknowledgement of Dortmund’s effort, only lamenting the cruel turn of events in the proceedings leading up to full-time.

“We feel pride but also disappointment when you lose a match in the 90th minute,” the former Bayern youngster told ZDF.

“But we were a little tired at the end and Bayern took advantage of that. We didn’t have enough possession and it told in the end.

“It’s hard to lose like that.”
