BVB, News: Thomas Meunier “can’t spit in the soup” for Qatar

Right-back Thomas Meunier spoke in an interview with the French L’Equipe on Qatar, but avoided an assessment. The reason: he himself played for Paris Saint-Germain for four years and benefited from Qatar’s financial investments there. “I’m in a difficult position there,” said Meunier. “I knew that when I signed my contract with PSG.”

So he was neutral. “I can’t spit in the soup and say ‘The Qataris are assholes’. I can’t afford to take a stand,” admitted Meunier. However, he made his position on the World Cup clear: if he had had to make the decision to boycott himself, he would have chosen to compete in Qatar.

He sees the situation differently with the “One Love” bandage: “That’s a pity. We wanted to use the bandage, we agreed that among ourselves,” he explained, “we all know how things are here. But we also know them Rules. There are many differences between here and European culture. We have to accept that.”

But Meunier made a small statement: “If we wanted to do everything right, we wouldn’t have come to Qatar at all.” But it’s too late for that now. “Qatar and FIFA are working together. European federations have accepted FIFA’s decision,” he said.

BVB, rumor: New attempt at Nico Schulz sale

Left-back Nico Schulz still has no future in Dortmund. Big winter transfers are “not our plan”, reported Sebastian Kehl at a general meeting at the weekend. But a sale of Schulz is still being considered. After no buyers were found in the summer, it is also an issue for the winter, they report Ruhr news.

The problem: The current salary level of the left-back, who came from TSG Hoffenheim for a reported 25.5 million euros. “Sometimes even a free transfer isn’t enough,” admitted Hans-Joachim Watzke, without referring specifically to Schulz. According to the report, the ex-national player earns up to six million euros a year.
