Jurgen Klopp was graceful in defeat, praising his Wolfsburg manager Dieter Hecking for winning the DFB Pokal and effectively spoiling his final game in charge of Borussia Dortmund.
Wolfsburg triumphed 3-1 in Berlin to pick up their first trophy since winning the Bundesliga in 2009, while it was Hecking's first-ever title win.
"He deserves it," Klopp 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.
