BVB, News: Flick declares that Niklas Süle has not been nominated
After some players, including fellow defender Antonio Rüdiger, had wondered about the absence of Niklas Süle in the DFB squad, national coach Hansi Flick commented on the non-nomination of the BVB central defender at the first DFB press conference – and criticized him Fitness. “It’s the basis that every single player is in top form,” he explained the basis for his nominations.
And he added: “It is important that he is at the limit when it comes to fitness. These are things that we expect from players!” The subject is not new to Niklas Süle. Already last week, Flick explained in an interview with the FAZ: “For me, Niki could be one of the best central defenders there is. His potential is huge. But I think he’s leaving a lot behind. I want him to take a step forward with his attitude and his mentality.”
BVB, News: Can mourns the championship
Emre Can still hasn’t come to terms with missing out on winning the championship. “I still can’t explain it. I don’t even know if you can really process it at some point,” Can said in an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
BVB had to give way to series champions Bayern Munich after beating FSV Mainz 05 2-2 on the last matchday. “It’s still difficult to talk about it at all. The whole city, the fans and we too were prepared to win this title. The fact that we didn’t make it will probably stay in our minds forever,” said Can before the International match against Ukraine on Monday (6 p.m. / ZDF) in Bremen.
When the score was 0-1 against Mainz, Can had ceded a penalty to Sebastien Haller, and the striker missed the chance to equalise. “I wanted to shoot and felt good. That’s why I ran to the point. But then Seb asked if he could shoot,” said Can, but didn’t blame Haller: “He wanted to help the team. I would have shot and not hit, you might have said, why doesn’t he pass the ball? There’s no blame on Seb.”

BVB, News: Jude Bellingham is still out
The transfer of Jude Bellingham to Real Madrid is imminent, Borussia Dortmund, as a public company, has already announced the basic agreement with the Royal. But at Bellingham himself there is still negative news: The still-Borusse is still absent from the English national team. It’s about “the injury that cost him the season finale with Borussia Dortmund,” said the English association – he will not be able to play for England against Malta (June 16) or North Macedonia (June 19).
Bellingham missed the 33rd match day at BVB (3-0 win in Augsburg), in the season finale he was only on the bench for 90 minutes in the disappointing 2-2 and the playful championship – his squad nomination was more of a threat than a real option, because he would have been needed. Bellingham is probably suffering from knee problems – it is not known what exactly is wrong with him.
