Boateng: Saturday is the big one

The 2012/13 Bundesliga season is already history – and it will always be inextricably linked with Bayern. FCB have also laid down markers in this term’s Champions League, but when the Reds take on Dortmund at Wembley on Saturday, it is for real with the biggest prize in European football at stake. The fans, the whole club and of course the players can hardly wait.

“It's the big one on Saturday," Jerome Boateng exclusively told, “we're all totally looking forward to the match. We have to be up for it at just the right time." The centre back previewed the game, cast his mind back over a Bundesliga season of the superlatives, and also spoke about injured team mate Holger Badstuber.

Interview: Jerome Boateng Jerome, before we turn to all the positives, let’s deal with some much less welcome news: Holger Badstuber has sustained another torn cruciate. Have you spoken to him at all?
Jerome Boateng: Yes. Naturally, he's not in great shape. It's horrible for him, and a real shock for us too. But Holger is already looking to the future, he’s strong. All we can do is wish him the very best, and hope he's back with us as soon as possible.
