BVB, News: special praise for Mats Hummels
Schlotterbeck played, Mats Hummels not at first. If, before the guest appearance at TSV 1860 Munich, you assumed a chain of three in which Mats Hummels played alongside Schlotterbeck and Niklas Süle, coach Edin Terzic set up a chain of four in which only Süle and Schlotterbeck played – and Hummels stayed out for the time being.
BVB’s long-serving head of defense only came in for Süle at the break and earned a lot of praise from his coach for his 45-minute appearance. “He came on in the second half and made an excellent game. He was there straight away, very present, very good in tackles, very clear in the passing game. That’s how we imagine it,” said Terzic.
Süle’s substitution had something to do with the fact that, according to Terzic, the ex-Munich player “felt a little something in the front thigh”. Terzic continues: “And that’s the luxury we have, that we don’t have to take any more risks, but can substitute someone with Mats Hummels without losses.” But Hummels would rather play from the start.
BVB, News: U23 have to play longer in the Signal Iduna Park
Normally, the U23s of Borussia Dortmund play in the Rote Erde stadium – however, renovation work is currently being carried out there and an unscheduled return of the U23s is still in the stars. Normally, BVB’s third division squad should return to the stadium in August, but nothing will come of it.
According to the Ruhr news determined that there are significantly more cavities below the playing field than originally assumed. That means it will take longer to fill out. “Unfortunately, based on the current knowledge, the previous schedule cannot be kept. The construction time for exploration and safety measures will be extended by at least three months,” said the city of Dortmund.
This means that the U23s not only have to switch to Signal-Iduna Park in their first two home games against FC Ingolstadt (August 7) and Rot-Weiss Essen (August 13), but also against SC Freiburg II (August 28). August) and VfB Oldenburg (September 10). If it takes longer, it could become difficult.
