Weidenfeller bullish ahead of final
Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller has vowed to kicker that his side will be fully prepared for whatever Bayern Munich throw at them in Saturday's Champions League final.
Dortmund face their Bundesliga rivals this weekend at Wembley after the two sides impressed by disposing of Spanish opponents in the semi-finals of this season's competition.
Jurgen Klopp's side have been on the receiving end of many plaudits of late, with shot-stopper Weidenfeller among his top performers following a string of superb displays.
And Weidenfeller is bullish ahead of the forthcoming showdown, telling kicker: "We have extensive video footage. This will be shown pre-match. And moreover we know Bayern from several meetings in the past. We will be well prepared.
"Whatever happens in this final, we will be prepared for it. Everyone will be motivated to the max. And the anticipation gets bigger every day."
Weidenfeller's form has seen him tipped to be named FIFA Goalkeeper Of The Year, and the German, who is uncapped by his nation, is humbled to receive such praise.
"That this question (Goalkeeper of the Year) is even raised makes me very proud. I will not worry about this now," he said. "We have a dead important game coming up first."
