Chelsea defender Michael Hector played in the DFB-Pokal final during his time on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt.
It was Eintracht Frankfurt’s first final since 2006.
In an interview with Chelsea’s official website, Hector talked about playing in the final.
“We had chances to take the lead, I had one as well, we hit the post but you know when you’re playing against a team as good as Dortmund, you need them to go in,” Hector said.
“You need that bit of luck on the day and we just didn’t have that.
“But to get to the final was a massive achievement. It was a great day out for our fans.
“They were just looking to stay in the league this season and for us to finish where we did and reach the cup final is good.
“We were in a European spot for most of the season so to just miss out was tough for us to take.
“But looking back at it from where they wanted to be at the beginning to where we ended up being, it was definitely a good season.”
