Mourinho: I never told Klopp I was going to Chelsea

The Portuguese coach has dismissed reports that claimed he is set to return to the Premier League giant and is focused on the match against Dortmund.
Jose Mourinho has insisted that he never told Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp that he will leave Real Madrid for Chelsea at the end of the 2012-13 campaign.

German tabloid Bild reported after the first leg of the Champions League semifinal tie between both sides that the Portuguese had told his opposite number that he would return to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Klopp already stressed that he never told anyone that the former Inter boss will leave Madrid at the end of the season, though, and Mourinho himself has now added that he did not tell the BVB trainer anything about his plans for the future.

"I never told Klopp that I was going to Chelsea," Mourinho said at a press conference.

The 50-year-old then went on to state that the outcome of the tie against Borussia Dortmund will not influence his decision on his future.

"My future doesn't depend on what happens Tuesday," he continued. "Will it be my last game? I am only thinking about the match against Dortmund. It's the most important game of the past 10 years for Madrid. My future is not on my mind."

Madrid will be looking to overturn a 4-1 first leg deficit in the return leg at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo fit for Dortmund clash

The attacker was being plagued by muscular problems in the past few days, but has been deemed match fit again ahead of Tuesday's game with Dortmund.

Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to full training ahead of Real Madrid's Champions League semifinal clash with Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

The Portugal international netted his side's only goal in a 4-1 first leg defeat last week, but then missed this weekend's 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid due to a leg injury.

Nevertheless, Ronaldo is not in danger of missing Tuesday's return at the Santiago Bernabeu as he has resumed regular training action again after a brief layoff. 

The prolific attacker joined his teammates for the first time for Monday's early session and participated without any noteworthy problems.

Ronaldo has been in superb form for Madrid this term, netting 51 goals in 50 appearances in all competitions, and Madrid will be hopeful he can add to his tally on Tuesday as it aims for a comeback win over Dortmund in order to make it to the Champions League final.

Cristiano Ronaldo denies cheating on girlfriend

The prolific attacker has dismissed claims that he slept with a Brazilian model just 48 hours before Real Madrid's 4-1 loss to Dortmund.
Cristiano Ronaldo has vehemently denied claims that he cheated on his girlfriend Irina Shayk with Brazilian model Andressa Urach, also known as 'Miss BumBum'.

Urach told The Sun on Sunday that she had slept with with the Real Madrid star at the Hotel Villa Magna just 48 hours before the first leg of Madrid's Champions League semifinal tie against Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park, but the player has insisted there's no truth in the Brazilian's comments.

"I was informed that The Sun, faithful to its editorial line, will publish an article where it has given voice to a so-called Andressa," Ronaldo wrote on his official Twitter page.

He added: "Someone seeking the limelight on my account. And I wonder why this happens one day before a very important game for my team. Deeply outraged by a situation intended, in vain, to affect my personal life, I just want to clarify...

"I was in fact at the Hotel Villa Magna on April 22 giving an interview to Manu Sainz, something the reporter himself is able to corroborate. Everything else is pure fiction and forgery."

Ronaldo is currently preparing for the return of Madrid's semifinal against Dortmund at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday.

Basel vs Chelsea (1-2)

Basel 1-2 Chelsea: Late Luiz winner puts Blues on verge of final

Fabian Schar looked to have saved a draw for the hosts after Victor Moses' opener but the Brazilian ended their unbeaten run on home turf with the last kick of the match.

David Luiz's injury-time free kick gave Chelsea a 2-1 victory over Basel in the Europa League semifinal first leg at St Jakob Park on Thursday.

Victor Moses' first-half header put the Blues in front but Fabian Schar looked to have salvaged a share of the spoils for the hosts from the penalty spot.

Fueled by the harsh decision to award a spot kick for Cesar Azpilicueta's foul on Valentin Stocker, however, Chelsea mounted a last stand and Luiz's 20-yard effort slipped away from goalkeeper Yann Sommer.

Basel lost at home for the first time in this year's Europa League.

Against a Basel team unchanged from their quarterfinal second leg against Tottenham, John Terry partnered Branislav Ivanovic at the back for the Blues as David Luiz moved into midfield, while Ramires and Moses started ahead of Juan Mata and Oscar.

Basel has proved to be a force both domestically and in Europe on home turf this season and sought to immediately take the initiative, but despite its dominance of the early possession Chelsea looked a potent force on the counterattack.

Cesar Azpilicueta was a persistent threat from right back and picked out a trademark Lampard run with a cross to the near post but Yann Sommer was equal to the midfielder's first-time effort.

From the resulting corner, however, determined decoy work by Ivanovic allowed Moses to sneak into space unnoticed to nod home Lampard's center.

Basel remained on the front foot but was largely restricted to shots from distance, with Fabian Schar forcing Petr Cech to tip his fiercely struck free kick over the crossbar.

Chelsea continued to find space on the right-hand side and soon after Fernando Torres' shot was blocked, Sommer did well to claw away Ramires' half-volley.

Eden Hazard spurned the visitors' best opportunity of the half when Moses set him through on goal but by that point Basel's control over proceedings had diminished.

Murat Yakin drew a brief response out of his team after the break and Stocker hit the post after a one-two with Marco Streller, but, once again, Chelsea effectively took the sting out of the game.

Chelsea, too, rattled the frame of the goal early in the second half when Hazard danced down the left and cut the ball back to Torres, who crashed a left-footed shot against the post.

Rafa Benitez was dealt one significant setback when Cole collected a booking for wasting time that rules him out of the second leg and his team was harshly punished by another refereeing decision before the final whistle.

With the Blues looking reasonably comfortable in defense, Stocker earned a spot kick under the challenge of Azpilicueta when it looked as if a cross from the right had evaded the Basel winger and Schar made no mistake.

Chelsea can take great credit, though, for the spirited response that drew. Both Torres and Terry were denied from point-blank range before Luiz's free kick escaped Sommer's clutches and nestled in the bottom corner.

Lewandowski: Just reaching the final counts

Robert Lewandowski scored four goals for Borussia Dortmund 4-1 victory against Real Madrid, but has said he is focused to help the team to reach the final.
"I am happy to have scored four goals, but it is worth reaching the final and it only counts".

"Real Madrid played well in the first half, but we checked things in the second half. We are satisfied, "said Pole.

If BVB to Finals chances are great that will play against German rival, Bayern Munich, believe that if speculation should be the next club Lewandowski.

Sergio Ramos, they were the best, that's all

Quarterback Real Madrid Sergio Ramos has not provided any justification for the terrible loss to Borussia Dortmund (4-1) in the first semifinal of the Champions League, saying that Germans were much better.
"We did not have any attitude. They were the best, that's all. We still have 90 minutes, but is more difficult with a German team ".

"People thought we were lucky, but they are a very good team. The team spirit and hard work prevailed tonight. "

"It would be difficult to qualify for the final. We have to fight a lot since the beginning to have any chance in this race, "said Ramos.

Jose Mourinho blames protection

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho was highly critical of his defense team after the heavy defeat by Dortmund in Germany tonight night.
Lewandowski scored four goals in the gate full of Real Madrid and Mourinho has blamed for the defeat suffered protection. He says Leëandoëskin have studied the whole of and could not accept his mistakes players.

"We know absolutely every thing Lewandowski, absolutely everything. We have studied it from every possible detail and we lose it in three goals - not talking at all about penaltinë, where we knew exactly what he wanted to do. "

"It is obviously very disappointing. When I did not deserve to lose and lose, then play it for me, but when I miss and deserve defeat, is a situation that does not accept ".

"We are well prepared for the game, we were confident that we would get. I think a lot of guys have not had a good night and this is what not to do, fail in the evening of the second most important in world football, "said the Portuguese.

Borussia Dortmund 4-1 Real Madrid Report

Borussia Dortmund 4-1 Real Madrid: Four for Lewandowski as Mourinho's men are dismantled

The Spaniards had no answer for the goal-hungry Pole, who was a one-man wrecking ball as Jurgen Klopp's charges inflicted a painful defeat on the visitors.

A sensational exhibition of goalscoring from Robert Lewandowski drove Borussia Dortmundto a dominant win in the first leg of its Champions League semifinal, as it destroyed Real Madrid 4-1 at home to put one foot into the tournament's final. 
The Poland star was on target for all four of his side's goals as it overcame the Blancos, whose only consolation was an away goal courtesy of Cristiano Ronaldo that gives them the faintest of hopes for the return. 

Looking to follow the example of compatriots Bayern Munich after the Bavarians destroyed Barcelona the previous evening, Dortmund came out in a bullish fashion and almost took the lead in the first few minutes. 

Marco Reus picked up the ball on the halfway line and embarked on a brilliant run, weaving past several Madrid markers before squaring up to Diego Lopez in goal. The keeper did well to parry the shot, and Robert Lewandowski found himself on the wrong side of the rebound and could not convert. 

If the Poland international was irritated with himself at letting the chance slip away, he made instant amends. A fluid move from the home side ended at the feet of Mario Gotze, and the young forward looped a cross into the area. Lewandowski reacted before anyone in a white shirt, muscling his way between the Merengue defense and diving in to steer home and put his team in the ascendancy after just eight minutes. 

The goal was no less than BVB deserved for an all-action start to the clash, as they harried their rivals across the park and gave them barely a second to breathe. As the half progressed, Madrid started to gain a foothold and enjoy more possession, although clear chances were at a premium. 

It was from dead balls that the visitors looked most dangerous. Several deep crosses required strong defensive action from the Germans, while Cristiano Ronaldo went closest to troubling the scorers with a long-range free kick that was parried away by Roman Weidenfeller. 

Just as the Spanish side looked certain to enter the break one down, two big incidents changed the course of the half. A clumsy challenge from Rafael Varane on Reus as the forward escaped into the box provoked desperate calls for a penalty, shouts that fell on death ears as the referee refused to oblige. Almost without pause, Madrid took their chance to strike. 

A direct counter looked to be straightforward for Mats Hummels, but an attempted backpass from the defender was well short and seized upon by Gonzalo Higuain. The Argentine could have gone alone behind the backline, but instead chose to square perfectly for Ronaldo who stroked into the empty net to level the game minutes before halftime. 

Dortmund could have panicked after seeing its lead evaporate, but instead opted to start the second period in exactly the same fashion as the first. With just four minutes played after the break, Reus picked up a header on the edge of the box and threaded through to Lewandowski. 

Madrid's defense screamed offside, but it was inattention from Varane that led to the striker being left all alone, and he made no mistake in punishing the error as he slammed past Lopez for his and BVB's second. 

The Bundesliga's top scorer was in no mood to slow down. With Madrid still reeling from that early blow, Marcel Schmelzer picked up a loose ball on the edge of the area and hit with venom towards goal. The shot took a deflection and fell perfectly for Lewandowski, who executed a marvelous turn and shot into the roof of the net to seal his hat trick, put his team two up, and in control of the tie. 

The consolation for Madrid is that it could have been even worse. Ilkay Gundogan left his marker standing with a silky turn and shaped towards goal, launching a stinging effort from the left. The ball looked destined to end in the top corner if not for the intervention of Lopez, who pulled off a stunning fingertip save to avoid a fourth and further humiliation for Jose Mourinho's charges. The goalkeeper was let down, however, by some boneheaded play from those in front of him. 

Madrid was resigning itself to chasing a two-goal deficit in the Bernabeu, albeit with an away strike, when an idiotic shove from Xabi Alonso on Reus led to a penalty. Who else was going to step up: Lewandowski prepared calmly and blasted past Lopez for his fourth, to cap an exceptional display for both the striker and Dortmund, who held on to record an impressive win over the Spaniards. 

The Merengues were left bruised after a convincing defeat, but will still hope to turn round the fixture thanks to Ronaldo's away goal. The second leg will be played in the Santiago Bernabeu, on April 30. 


Bayern Munich ie trampled what was called the best team in the world - Barcelona, ​​beating the 4-0 in the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals held at the Allianz Arena.
