BVB, rumor: Ryerson is apparently out against Hoffenheim
BVB will apparently have to do without right-back Julian Ryerson in the away game against TSG Hoffenheim on Saturday. As the Ruhr news report, the 25-year-old did not make his way to Kraichgau with the rest of the Dortmund team.
It is not yet known why Ryerson, who recently established himself as a regular at BVB under Edin Terzic, was unable to travel with the team. Felix Passlack is said to have slipped into the squad instead of Ryerson. The full-back was recently not in Dortmund’s squad.
With a point win against Hoffenheim, BVB could temporarily take the lead in the table on Saturday, before FC Bayern host Union Berlin in a direct duel on Sunday.
BVB, News: Roman Bürki does not believe in the Dortmund championship
Ex-BVB keeper Roman Bürki spoke to the Ruhr news explains that he does not believe in a BVB championship in the current season. “I watch the games whenever I can and I’m happy for them too that things are going so well,” revealed the Swiss. “But something inside me tells me that Bayern are in the lead after all. Maybe because I’ve been there every season for seven years.”
Bürki, who moved to St. Louis City in the MLS on a free transfer last summer, also looked back on his departure from BVB. “I was there for almost seven years. I grew fond of the players and the people. It wasn’t a happy ending, even though I got one more game. If you don’t perform, you’re worthless very quickly. I had to accept it, even if it wasn’t easy,” explained the 32-year-old.
At his new club from St. Louis, as one of the three “designated players” under MLS statutes, unlike his teammates, his salary is not capped. Bürki will earn at least $1.6 million a year with his contract until 2025. “Some say it’s too much, others say it’s not even a quarter of what it used to be. I’m happy with what I’m earning. And I’m not here for the money, I’m here for the football.” explained the keeper.
BVB, News: Niklas Süle sees “great dynamics” in the team
“We have made it our goal to get everything we can out of these six months. That’s why we’re working hard. There isn’t anyone in the team who hasn’t understood what a huge opportunity we have,” said Niklas Süle in BVB’s “Feiertagsmagazin”.
“There’s a great dynamic in the team in particular. There are games in which we don’t play such good and convincing football, but which we still win. I think that ultimately decides whether you hold something up at Borsigplatz or not “added the 27-year-old.
BVB is still represented in all competitions and the atmosphere in the Champions League against Chelsea has particularly impressed Dortmund’s new summer signing. “These are the moments why you think about coming here. Take it all with you, such a choreography, then the Champions League anthem plays, you win 1-0, even though it was a very difficult game,” said Süle .
