“(It’s) something we dreamed as a child [reaching the Champions League Final], some of us are still children.”– Jurgen Klopp, head coach, Borussia Dortmund, via @dominicvieira

“Que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be, we’re going to Wembley” — Borussia Dortmund’s supporters section, after the final whistle, via @henrywinter
“I’m going to drink a beer at the the hotel, but Nuri knows the city so I think the lads might be going out for a night on the town!” — Klopp, via @JMThorogood
“We got the result we wanted in the end. We knew if they scored the crowd would get behind them. I felt we were in control, but it almost went the same way as our game against Málaga in the last round. Getting to a Champions League final is a dream come true for all of us, especially at a famous stadium like Wembley.” — Mats Hummels, central defender, Borussia Dortmund, via UEFA.com
“They put a lot of pressure on us and scored two late goals, but we are a great club and deserved to go through. I haven’t spent a thought about Wembley. Let’s celebrate now and think about the final tomorrow.” — Kevin Grosskreutz, winger, Borussia Dortmind, via UEFA.com
“It’s a shame. You can lose, this is football. If we lose it must be this way. We should have played like this in Dortmund. We have a lot of pain for the fans. It’s a shame to have been so close. The missed chances in the first half cost us.” — Sergio Ramos, central defender/captain, Real Madrid, to UEFA.com
“The first leg was key, but today we demonstrated we are a team that could have been in the final. We missed chances, we scored too late. I want to congratulate the fans for their support. We’re sad because we knew there was a final game. We have proven to be better than them, but the score in the first leg was key.”– Ronaldo
Arrigo Sacchi, to Jurgen Klopp: “Your Borussia Dortmund, simply a masterpiece.” Klopp: “I learnt it all from your Milan.”
“It was not a fright. It was just what we expected. We knew we had to react well, which is what we managed to do.” — Klopp, during his post-match press conference, via @dermotcorrigan
“At those (late) moments I thought if God wills we go to the final. If he does not want it, we will not.” — Klopp
“I thought Ramos could do with Lewandowski whatever he wanted. To stay cool in situations like this is absolutely great.” –Klopp
“He should have seen the seven yellows for Ramos marking on Lewandowski!” – Klopp, upon being informed of José Mourinho’s complaints of referee Howard Webb.
“Mats felt responsible in Dortmund. Now, surely, he is very happy that we have gone through, and I have a lot of respect for him.” — Klopp
“I have watched Wimbledon often. But going to Wembley will be one of the greatest moments of our lives.” — Klopp, on England
“In Wembley we will not be satisfied to be a finalist. We want to be the winner of this cup. We will see what will happen.” – Klopp
“We didn’t need luck because we played really well. To reach final you must suffer. But we deserved to go through.” – Klopp
“Bayern or Barça as opponent in the final? Don’t have any preference, they’re two of the best teams in the world. — Hummels
