[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Borussia Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp says he's visited Wimbledon to watch the tennis but never
been to Wembley Stadium. He'll finally get that chance as Dortmund qualified for the UEFA Champions League final against either Bayern Munich or Barcelona on May 25.
Dortmund hung on for the 4-3 aggregate win despite losing to Real Madrid, 2-0, on late goals by Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos.
"I thought if God wills it, we'll go to the final," Klopp said after the tense finale to a series Dortmund seemed to have in the bag. "If he doesn't, we won't."
The final will be the first for Dortmund since its 1997 title.
"It will be one of the greatest moments in our life," said Klopp. "But we do not want to go there to be tourists. We want to be the winner of this cup. We will see what happens but this is just so great."
Dortmund held on despite the loss of playmaking star Mario Goetze early in the game with a leg injury. It had several good chances. Robert Lewandowski, who scored all four goals for Dortmund in the first leg, hit the crossbar and Ilkay Gundogan was denied by Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez from close range.
Madrid didn't score until the 83rd minute and added a second goal five minutes later to set up a dramatic finish. A third Madrid goal without a Dortmund reply would have given the nine-time European champions' a miraculous comeback win.
After Madrid's exit, Coach Jose Mourinho signaled he'll probably leave Spain and move to "where people love me to be." That would likely be England and Chelsea, which he left in September 2007 after leading the Blues to two Premier League titles and three domestic cup wins.
"I know in England I am loved," he said. "I know I am loved by some clubs, especially one."
He hit out at the Spanish media with whom he has clashed.
"I am loved by the fans and the media who treat me in a fair way," he said of the treatment he gets in England. "I know in Spain it is different because many people hate me."
He said he wouldn't make any final decision until the season ends. Real Madrid plays Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey final. It is 11 points behind Barcelona with five games remaining in La Liga, which concludes June 1.
