BVB, rumour: Ilkay Gündogan could return to Borussia Dortmund
Will there be a big reunion this summer in Dortmund? Since the future of Ilkay Gündogan is still unclear, BVB could now be the beneficiary.
At least that’s speculated Picture and points out that Gündogan’s talks with Manchester City are stalling for one reason: While Gündogan would like to sign for two years, the Skyblues should only offer the 32-year-old another year.
A move to FC Barcelona could fail due to problems with the Spanish salary cap. Accordingly, BVB would be a candidate for a free transfer including a bonus for the captain of City.
Picture also refers to Gündogan’s personal relationships with Dortmund – he celebrated the 2012 double with sports director Sebastian Kehl and was in the 2013 CL final against FC Bayern (1:2). Overall, Gündogan played for BVB from 2011 to 2016 before going to Manchester for 27 million euros.
Gündogan himself emphasized on Saturday that everything is still open.
As is well known, not everything went well on the 34th match day for BVB. However, this was not only true for the botched championship against Mainz 05 (2:2), but there were also problems in the city.
The “Mit Schmackes” pub, which belongs to former BVB player Kevin Grosskreutz, criticized Borussia fans. Those are said to have disregarded the reservation obligation of the gastronomy on said Saturday. Accordingly, the restaurant had already been fully booked six weeks earlier. Dortmund supporters without reservations are said to have sat down and refused to release the reserved seats when asked.
“So we had to stop the entire sale for an hour from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. until we cleared our shop, in order to then let in all reservations AND also provide other fans with numerous standing places,” it said on the social media channels of the pub.
The BVB supporters are said to have brought their own cans and bottles and then left them in the restaurant.
There was also multiple damage to property: “Lightbulbs were twisted out of their sockets and trampled on the floor. A broken window in the front door, broken tables and some bad ratings because there was no more space. From sales compared to normal game days not to mention.”
Kevin Großkreutz himself admitted on Instagram: “I admit that I underestimated the number of guests and fans and that’s why I didn’t use a security service. This was a/my mistake and will not happen again.”
However, Grosskreutz also saw the city of Dortmund as partly to blame, since he believed that organized public viewing would have relieved the situation. However, the pay-TV broadcaster sky had already prohibited such a thing in advance.
