Michael Zorc annoyed by injuries: "Permanently disadvantaged"

BVB sports director Michael Zorc has shown upset that Borussia Dortmund will have to do without several top performers at the start of the season. Due to the European Championship, some players will not start training until Monday, others returned injured.

Mats Hummels (patellar tendon), Emre Can and Raphael Guerreiro (both calves) have been back with the team for a week, but they haven’t been able to take part in team training due to their injuries, which Zorc is angry about: “It’s not a big one for any of them Story, but it interferes with the preparation, “he said the Ruhr news.

“It is annoying that we as a club are permanently disadvantaged when players come back injured from the national teams,” he said. In addition to the Belgians Axel Witsel, Thorgan Hazard and Thomas Meunier, Manuel Akanji was also able to contest his first units in the training camp in Switzerland, just like with newcomer Donyell Malen, the intensity should be increased soon.

Thus, the named players should already be an option for the cup game at SV Wehen Wiesbaden next Saturday, for the ailing trio this is unlikely to apply any more than for Thomas Delaney and Jude Bellingham, who will only be back with the team from Monday and then corona tests and have the performance diagnostics in front of you.

The situation in central defense is particularly precarious, as Dan-Axel Zagadou and youngster Soumaila Coulibaly are still missing for a long time. Therefore, the U23 center-backs Antonios Papadopoulos and Lennard Maloney will remain part of the professional team before the situation improves. The same applies to midfielder Göktan Gürpüz, whose good performance coach Marco Rose wants to honor.
