BVB, transfers: Sebastian Kehl teases against FC Bayern

Implementing its own transfer strategy has become increasingly difficult for BVB. Sports director Sebastian Kehl said so in an interview with the FAZ explained. Signing young, highly talented players is more complicated because the top clubs are now also fishing in BVB waters.

Kehl illustrated this with an example in which he named Bayern Munich of all things: “FC Bayern bought a player in Mathys Tel in 2022 from a segment that Munich might not have used earlier.” For Kehl, it’s a signal “that the clubs that are economically even stronger than us are now discovering our path for themselves.” The Munich team signed the 17-year-old Tel for 20 million euros from Rennes last summer.

The trend is unmistakable for him, says Kehl: “We can feel it clearly, I hear it every day in discussions with my scouting department and with consultants.”

BVB, News: Bastian Schweinsteiger thinks highly of Emre Can

Emre Can has been in strong form for a few weeks. Bastian Schweinsteiger didn’t go unnoticed either. The longtime Bayern star said in the ARD-Interview on the question of which BVB player he likes best at the moment: “Emre Can is doing very well at the moment, you’ve also seen that with the national team, what stability he has brought in there. To him in association with Jude Bellingham and Guerreiro are particularly important – and of course the central defenders Süle and Schlotterbeck.”

Can comes from the youth team of FC Bayern and meets his former club on Saturday evening in the eagerly awaited top game of the Bundesliga.

BVB, News: According to Paul Scholes, Jadon Sancho had it easier at Borussia Dortmund than at Manchester United

Former Dortmund player Jadon Sancho is still waiting for his breakthrough at Manchester United. Red Devils legend Paul Scholes commented on this and also explained why the 23-year-old might have had better conditions for strong performances with the Black and Yellows.

On the Webby & O’Neill YouTube channel Scholes explained that it was basically not easy for Sancho because he had not been used consistently due to various problems. That makes it harder to get used to and adapt to the pace of the Premier League. Nevertheless, the 85 million purchase is “not nearly as good as we knew him from Dortmund”.

“Sometimes he played as number 10 but that’s not his position for me,” said Scholes. “I see him as a left winger, although Marcus Rashford was in great form there. In Dortmund he played on the right and excelled there. But sometimes it’s also about the players around you and in Dortmund it just suited him better. He had Hakimi who sped down the wing and brought a lot of speed with him.” In addition, Sancho also harmonized excellently with the then BVB striker Erling Haaland.

Scholes has not yet given up hope with Sancho. He has to settle in better at United and get used to his teammates. “I’ll keep my fingers crossed that we’ll see a better Sancho next year,” said the two-time Champions League winner.

BVB, News: Edin Terzic praises Thomas Tuchel

Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic speaks with great appreciation of his Munich rival Thomas Tuchel. “I’m looking forward to welcoming him to the other side – that shows that I can work at the absolute top level,” said Terzic before the top game at FC Bayern on Saturday: “He’s one of the best and most successful coaches in recent years in Europe.”

Not only did Tuchel do “outstanding work” in Dortmund, but he also had a very successful time at Paris St. Germain. “At Chelsea he formed a really good, strong team, which was then rewarded with the Champions League victory.”

However, the BVB coach also feels with Julian Nagelsmann, who was surprisingly released in Munich. “I think it’s a shame about him, he’s an absolute top coach. But we know how fast things can go in this business,” said Terzic.

BVB: The expected line-ups against FC Bayern

This is how both teams could tackle the cracker in the Allianz Arena on Saturday evening:

Bavaria: Summer – Pavard (Cancelo), Upamecano, de Ligt, Davies – Kimmich, Goretzka – Coman, Müller, Mané (Sané/Musiala) – Choupo-Moting

BVB: Kobel – Wolf, Süle, Schlotterbeck (Hummels), Ryerson – Bellingham, Can, Guerreiro – Brandt (Malen), Haller, Reus

BVB, News: Jürgen Kohler advises Borussia Dortmund to understate

Former world champion Jürgen Kohler advises his ex-club Borussia Dortmund to continue to refrain from bold announcements in the Bundesliga title fight with Bayern Munich. “I think a certain understatement suits Dortmund and its players better,” said the 57-year-old in an interview

Kohler, active in his career for both BVB and Bayern, recalled a situation two years ago when Dortmund “formulated a clear claim to the championship. It went wrong back then, the shell went to Munich, as is well known offensive statement around the ears.”

Nevertheless, emphasized the former world-class defender, Borussia must have the right to “play for the championship”. Even before the season he counted Dortmund among the title contenders. “It was clear that things would go very well if everything came together,” said Kohler and praised the BVB coach: “Edin Terzic made sure of that.”
