BVB boss Watzke with tip against ARD expert Schweinsteiger: "Bayern earns enough"

BVB boss Hans-Joachim Watzke has a tip of ARDExpert Bastian Schweinsteiger countered smugly regarding Borussia Dortmund’s personnel policy.

During the broadcast of the DFB Cup round of 16 between Dortmund and FC St. Pauli, Schweinsteiger was confident that BVB would be able to compensate for a much-discussed farewell to top striker Erling Haaland in the summer.

“Even if Haaland leaves BVB in the summer: Borussia Dortmund has shown again and again in recent years that they can get great players,” said the former national player and long-time professional at FC Bayern Munich, but in this regard provided the sustainability of Dortmund’s personnel planning in question.

The crucial question for him is: “When will it be the case that, if you make transfers, you no longer have to make these sales in order to get to Bayern Munich or to progress in the Champions League? I hope for all of football -Germany, that this will come.”

When asked about this question during the live switch, Watzke said: “Now we’re in the economic area. Schweini would have to shoot us a few million, he’s earned enough at Bayern.”

In general, the big problem is that BVB “can’t pay the salary that Bayern or Real Madrid can afford”, “Bastian knows that too,” added Watzke more seriously. However, the Dortmund managing director agreed ARD-Experts on one thing: “If Erling should really go – and that can happen – we will find a solution again.”
