BVB, News: Streich criticizes Adeyemi
After the 5-1 defeat against Borussia Dortmund, Freiburg coach Christian Streich accused his team of lacking in cleverness and at the same time voiced mild criticism of BVB.
Above all, the yellow-red card against SC defender Kiliann Sildillia was a thorn in the side of Streich. The first warning came after a running duel in which the Frenchman hit Adeyemi with his hand in the face and he immediately fell to the ground. A few moments earlier, Niklas Süle made a similar offense against Daniel-Kofi Kyereh, which referee Robert Schröder overlooked.
“Kofi gets his elbow in his face, on his neck – and stops. And during Kiliann’s running duel he (Adeyemi, ed.) lies directly on the ground,” said Streich and accused his team of lacking composure. “You can tick that off under cleverness and lack of cleverness with us, because if you get your hand in your face, you can of course stop and hold your face. Of course, Adeyemi and the like were ahead of us in many things.”
BVB, News: Watzke raves about Haller’s comeback
BVB boss Hans-Joachim Watzke was personally touched by the goal of attacker Sébastien Haller, who had recovered from testicular cancer, in the 5-1 win against SC Freiburg on Saturday.
The way in which the 28-year-old returned to the team after his cancer just six months later “is a miracle for me,” said the CEO of Borussia Dortmund Ruhr news.
The 63-year-old was literally in raptures: “It’s unbelievable how mercilessly he dealt with the disease from day one.” The top scorer himself commented on his goal very emotionally: “You’re floating on a cloud. When I scored the goal, not only was the stadium on fire, but my teammates were on fire too. That gives a big boost. I hope we get it more of those moments.”
