Jurgen Klopp’s Spoiled Farewell

Borussia Dortmund was defeated on their last match against Wolsfburg who claimed a 3-1 victory in the German Cup final. Wolfsburg scored three times in 16 minutes to come back from a goal down and beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 on Saturday (30/5) and land their first German Cup final win, a fitting coronation after a hugely successful season. Wolfsburg VfL claimed the first DFB-Pokalhonour of their history with an impressive 3-1 triumph.

The clash was JurgenKlopp’s final match in charge of Dortmund and the defeat may become his spoiled farewell. Having led Dortmund to the 2013 Champions League final after winning the Bundesliga in 2011 and claiming the German league and cup double in 2012, this was Klopp’s final bow before Thomas Tuchel takes over next season.

Luiz Gustavo, Kevin de Bruyne and Bas Dost all struck in the first half to spoil Dortmund’s plans to send Klopp off in style after seven years in charge. “It was a great game for us,” said the goal scoring midfielder Kevin De Bruyne. “We struggled in the first 20 minutes but after that we played great. We have kept playing for him since the winter break. We had him with us and he would have hoped we won it,” said De Bruyne, fighting back the tears.

The Belgian international became the man of the match as he capped a wonderful performance with a deadly goal. He helped his team mates everywhere on the pitch. Dortmund, in their fourth final since 2008 and hoping for a winning farewell for Klopp, got off to a dream start when Pierre-EmerickAubameyang fired in a volley after a chip from Shinji Kagawa.

However, Dortmund were unable to find a way past a resilient and well organized Wolfsburg side who now have a trophy to accompany their Bundesliga runners-up medal. Wolfsburg finished second only to Bayern Munich in the German league this season and claimed their first German cup title in their 69-year history, exactly 20 years after reaching their last final.

Instead it was Wolfsburg who were dangerous on the break, leaving Klopp with a bitter end to seven success-laden years at Dortmund that included two league titles, two German Super Cups, a German Cup and a Champions League final in 2013.

Klopp was clearly disappointed not to go out on a high, but conceded his side had been second best as he said: “We did a lot right, but we had no luck at all with our moves. Wolfsburg deserved to win, but it was an unnecessary defeat for us.”
