BVB, News – Gisdol: Niklas Süle needs more attention
Former coach Markus Gisdol is convinced that his former protégé Niklas Süle can play a key role both at Borussia Dortmund and in the national team.
“Niki is always attributed the story with the weight. He needs a little more closeness, a little more attention than others – then he delivers excellent performance,” Gisdol explained in one sky-Interview.
“If you discuss things clearly with him, then he is willing to work incredibly hard and consistently,” said Gisdol. He is sure “that he is a very good player for Dortmund and the national team”.
Süle made his Bundesliga debut at TSG Hoffenheim and Gisdol as a 17-year-old. In 2017, Süle switched to Bayern Munich for 20 million euros. This summer he joined BVB on a free transfer. So far he has completed seven competitive games for the black and yellow.
Former professional Maik Franz is still convinced of the qualities of the central defender from Borussia Dortmund, despite Nico Schlotterbeck’s not flawless performances in the national team.
“He still has room for improvement in the national team, but he’s a top player for the next few years,” said Franz sports1: “You should trust him.” He will be “the cornerstone,” said the 41-year-old: “He will also be the leading player in the national team.” Together with Antonio Rüdiger Schlotterbeck should be set in the DFB team. “Those are two real machines over there,” said Franz.
The former defensive player also came out as a fan of Schlotterbeck, “because he’s just not this smooth-ironed guy. He’s not mainstream, doesn’t give any pre-packaged interviews. He sometimes intervenes and says his opinion,” said “Iron Mike”. “Please, let’s not criticize this boy too much.”
Schlotterbeck’s mistakes, which caused a penalty in the 3-3 win against England with a foul on BVB colleague Jude Bellingham, should “not be overestimated”, Franz added: “He can develop further. You could see that. He will develop more self-confidence and then we’re going to have a lot of fun with this player.”
BVB, News: Gregor Kobel’s representative Meyer enjoys every game
Alexander Meyer, who is currently replacing the injured Gregor Kobel in goal at Borussia Dortmund, likes his current role as a sought-after substitute.
Meyer described it as “sensational, simply indescribable” in an interview with the spark-Mediengruppe his unexpected appearances in the Champions League and the Bundesliga. He tries to enjoy the experience. “Because I also know how things can go differently and that there are many good footballers who may not be able to do it – especially because of injuries,” said Meyer, who switched to Dortmund from second division Jahn Regensburg before the season.
BVB coach Edin Terzic gave a positive assessment of the performance of the 31-year-old, who played twice in the league and in the premier class. “Obviously we were very disappointed that Greg was out. He was in incredible shape and he saved us a lot of points. Although the news was so bad, I was happy for Alex. He’s made a good impression since day one.” , said Terzic at the press conference before the game on Saturday at 1. FC Köln (3.30 p.m. in the live ticker).
Since first-choice goalkeeper Gregor Kobel is still out due to a torn muscle fiber, Meyer will be back in Dortmund’s goal on Saturday.
BVB, News: Marco Reus before returning to training
Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic has announced Marco Reus’ return to team training next week. The outer ligament injury that Reus suffered in the district derby against FC Schalke 04 (1-0) was “fortunately not as bad as initially feared,” said Terzic on Thursday.
Against Cologne, however, Terzic still has to do without the BVB captain. In addition to goalkeeper Gregor Kobel, Giovanni Reyna is also missing.
