BVB – News: Sebastian Kehl rumbles after a draw in Stuttgart

Despite a long majority and a 2-0 lead, BVB couldn’t get past a 3-3 win at VfB Stuttgart on Saturday. Sports director Sebastian Kehl was then properly served.

“I just have a complete incomprehension about this second half. It’s a big disappointment, frustration, a certain aggressiveness that I just felt after the game. I have to let it sink in first. We’ve broken a lot,” he said 43-year-old told reporters.

Kehl continued: “Even though we make it 3-2, running into a situation where we’re not compact and making individual mistakes – that can’t be explained.”

In view of leaders FC Bayern’s draw against TSG Hoffenheim at the same time, Kehl admitted: “I’m brutally annoyed with myself and less with what happened in Munich.” He is currently “not strategic and analytical, just angry”.

“We conceded four goals in the second half – you have to do that against ten people first,” added Kehl, who was alluding to a VfB goal when the score was 2-0 from BVB’s point of view, which was ultimately due to a VAR check Disallowed offside.

BVB – News: Dietmar Hamann criticizes Borussia Dortmund – “Don’t think along!”

It wasn’t just internal criticism for BVB’s performance in Stuttgart. Also sky-Expert Dietmar Hamann shared after the 3: 3 of Borussia in Swabia.

Hamann said after the game: “I’ve protected Dortmund in the last few weeks because they’ve caught up nine or ten points on Bayern. They were missing important players in the cup game in Leipzig. In Munich, a mistake by Kobel changes the game – but for today I have no understanding.”

BVB’s performance in Stuttgart showed above all “that they have a head problem. That they think if they’re up front and one man more, we’ll do it.”

Hamann saw the situation after the interim 3: 2 for Borussia in added time as particularly striking: “You shoot the 3: 2 in added time and then they are man against man at the back. If there are still two minutes to play, I will join ten or eleven men 25 meters from goal.”

This led Hamann to realize that Borussia lacked quality on the ball. “For me, they have too many players who just don’t think about what to do in the given situation,” added Hamann, and that made him “really speechless”. “I wouldn’t have thought that possible at half-time,” admitted Hamann.

Meanwhile, the other sky expert Lothar Matthäus expressed a similar opinion: “The Dortmunders don’t accept the things that are offered to them and that’s incredible. With experience, Dortmund simply has to get through a game like this.”

BVB – rumor: Decision made by Ansgar Knauff

The offensive player Ansgar Knauff, who is currently on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt, will probably not return to the Ruhrpott, contrary to other BVB plans. At least that’s what the reports Picture.

According to the report, there was a recent conversation between BVB and Knauff in which the 21-year-old could not be convinced of a black and yellow perspective. His contract runs until 2024, his loan in Frankfurt ends in the summer.

BVB coach Edin Terzic had expressed a clear opinion on this personality in February: “The clear plan is that he returns to us in the summer.” But now, according to the tabloid, it should only be about the fee that Frankfurt has to pay for the winger to stay. The SBU should be ready to pay five million euros, which BVB should still be too little.

Knauff moved to the Main in January 2022 and then caused a sensation in the knockout phase of the Europa League, which Frankfurt finally won. He has one goal and two assists in 20 Bundesliga games this season.

BVB – rumor: Borussia Dortmund favorite with Wilfried Zaha

Is BVB planning a new attempt with striker Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace? Foot Mercato reports that the Ivorian (30) will be an issue for Borussia, as was the case last year.

So Zaha would be a bargain for his upcoming club. And according to the portal, BVB should even be the favorite to sign the striker. League rivals FC Bayern, who are also known to be looking for a new striker, are also in the running. Also in the running: Arsenal and AS Monaco.

BVB – News: Thomas Meunier is injured in the second team
