Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel described the DFB-Pokal triumph over Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday as 'one of the greatest days of his coaching career.'
Ousmanne Dembele opened the scoring in the eighth minute but Dortmund were pegged back just before the hour mark by forward Ante Rebic at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.
However, top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found the winner from the spot in the 67th minute as Tuchel secured his first ever silverware in his managerial career.
"I'm very happy for those who were behind us, our fans, the whole staff and above all for my players," he told the club's webiste. "I'm feeling an unbelievable sense of joy.
"Today is definitely one of the greatest days of my coaching career. But I need to process it first, it needs some time to sink in.
"I think that special successes are achieved when there is a special connection between a coach and his players," he added.
"We have all reached our objectives and capped a special season. That can only happen if there is mutual trust."
