BVB, News: Kehl gives updates on Bellingham and Hummels
Sports director Sebastian Kehl continues to hope that Jude Bellingham will remain at Borussia Dortmund. “I still don’t see us without a chance. If we become champions and beat Bayern, that would be a sign. But in the end it also depends on the player,” said Kehl Sky90.
According to media reports, the English national player Bellingham should agree with the Spanish record champions Real Madrid about a change in the summer. Up to 150 million euros are under discussion as a transfer fee for the 19-year-old. His contract in Dortmund runs until 2025. “After the season we’ll get going,” said Kehl.
In the case of Mats Hummels, whose contract expires in the summer, a decision should be made beforehand. “We would like to extend with Mats, he knows that too. And Mats also knows that we need a decision on this soon – and preferably before the end of the season,” said Kehl.

BVB, News: Kohler sees a mental problem
Jürgen Kohler thinks the ongoing weakness of title candidate Borussia Dortmund is a mental problem. “It’s in people’s heads and can’t just be hidden, even if the coach would like it and the players say it is,” Kohler wrote in his table football-Column.
BVB has not won in six competitive games away from home, three of which have been lost. In the basement children Schalke, Stuttgart and Bochum there was only one draw each. On Sunday, Borussia, who are just one point behind FC Bayern in the tight championship race, have to play FC Augsburg in the penultimate game of the season.
For the league, according to Kohler, this is “a great and exciting situation in which nerves play a major role”. Despite the recent 6-0 win against Schalke, the Munich team “didn’t seem solid, so their next opponent, Leipzig, could pose a threat”. But FCA is also “good for a surprise” against Dortmund.
