BVB, News: Stefan Effenberg criticizes Dortmund’s advisor Matthias Sammer
In his column for sports1 the former Bundesliga player Stefan Effenberg criticized those responsible at Borussia Dortmund – primarily Matthias Sammer, who acts as an external consultant at BVB.
In view of the Dortmund crisis, after two defeats at the end of the year, Borussia slipped to sixth place, Effenberg wrote: “Demand mentality, that must also come from those responsible. When things didn’t go well at Bayern recently with the many draws, people came like Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic from cover. The players were counted and then they reacted. I just don’t see it that way at Dortmund.”
And further: “Something has to come from Matthias Sammer at BVB – I just don’t see or hear him. He should have said clear words to the boys, then maybe they’ll wake up. In the Champions League and in the DFB Cup to spend the winter, the Bundesliga shouldn’t hide that – I’m worried about BVB.”
Former professional Dietmar Hamann dealt out some Borussia Dortmund players in his capacity as a TV expert. “When I look at Dortmund over the last few weeks and months: an Emre Can cost 20 million, a hazard cost almost 40, a Malen also cost over 20. These are players you can’t use. They won’t get Dortmund there where they want to go,” said the 49-year-old sky.
These professionals have “proper contracts” in Dortmund. Therefore, it was “probably incredibly difficult to get rid of these players,” said Hamann.

Hamann also commented on the courted Jew Bellingham, who is still tied to BVB until 2025. Dortmund’s managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke only announced contract talks with the Englishman for the period after the World Cup on Sunday, but admitted: “We can’t afford a financial fight against the greats of Europe.” Borussia is “then there when Jews and family say we definitely want to stay in Dortmund”.
Hamann is now talking about a possible sale as early as next winter: “If someone comes in winter and says: ‘I’ll get the Bellingham and I’ll pay immoral money.’ Which one might do because he thinks: ‘If I don’t get him now, I won’t get him in the summer.’ Then I would consider handing him over in January,” said Hamann sky.
With an offer of 150 million euros, he would “think very carefully about letting him go because I don’t think he will have the same influence over the next few months that he has had in recent months,” said Hamann further and carried out. “The bidding starts in February and March. We saw what that did to Haaland. We saw what that did to the team. I think there could be a situation where they might be better without are than with him.”
