Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels revealed on Friday that he is fit to play in the all-German Champions League final against Bayern Munich after overcoming an ankle injury.

The 24-year-old former Bayern player had to go off in the 78th minute of Dortmund's 2-1 loss at home to Hoffenheim last weekend, but he said he was ready to tackle his old club at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Asked if he would be able to play, he replied: "Yes. Fortunately, the horror was a lot worse than the actual problem.

"My foot's not quite as it was before but it's in order for a match and I hope I'll be able to get through the last job of the season.

"When I went over, it was a huge shock for a moment. I know that feeling from past years as I've had it before.

"Then, on Sunday, the ankle looked better than I thought and I thought I was going to be fit, so I was very happy."
