Felipe Santana: Says Dortmund can be satisfied with their European campaign

The defender was an unused substitute in Saturday's UEFA Champions League final as Dortmund lost 2-1 to Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich.

He has congratulated Bayern on a deserved victory but insists Dortmund can be proud of their efforts after a wonderful European campaign.

"We have no reason to be sorry about this defeat," he told ESPN Brasil.

"We had many adventures along the way and we felt we could have won, but the best team won, the team that knew how to execute their chances, Bayern Munich."

Santana also insists that he will depart with his head held high after seeing Dortmund progress during his five years with the club, although it has not yet been confirmed where he will be going.

He said: "Negotiations are underway but I haven't decided yet. But surely next season I will watch Dortmund on television.

"Those were five golden years. I came to a team that were resurrecting in German football and I am now leaving through the front door."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
