BVB, News: This is how Edin Terzic reacted to Julian Brand’s podcast statements

Last summer, Julian Brandt made headlines with statements in the podcast kicker meets DAZN. “I had a lot of coaches that I broke defensively as much as possible,” he revealed at the time – exactly one day after coach Marco Rose was fired.

His successor Edin Terzic reacted to this quote with a one-on-one interview, as he now revealed in the “Brinkhoffs Ballgeflüster” discussion group: “There was this podcast with a few unfortunate statements. Then I visited him in the German national team’s training camp and that was with him conversation wanted.” He had “agreed” with Brand: “The only way to stop the discussions is by showing that he wants to be different in this area.”

Otherwise, the quote would haunt Brandt after every lost duel or bad game, says Terzic: “I’ll keep reminding him of that.” With success, it seems: Brandt is now also working defensively for the team a lot more and is playing his best season for BVB in years.

In general, the creative player is like Kevin De Bruyne, says Terzic: It’s not about a specific pass or shot, but about the necessary seriousness in every game. And he still expects that from the 26-year-old.

BVB, News: Sébastien Haller talks about cancer

After four chemotherapy treatments and two operations, BVB striker Sébastien Haller has overcome his cancer. He scored twice for Borussia in the 6-1 win over 1. FC Köln last weekend. The 28-year-old now said about his difficult time Foot Mercato: “I was helped by the great behavior of the team. You felt that they were touched and genuinely cared about you. Be it through words, gestures or messages.”

He was able to “get to know some people better and build a relationship,” he emphasized: “That’s actually one of the good things about the disease.”

Haller was also asked about the championship race in the Bundesliga: “It is clear that we will fight for this title because we are close. It is really every player’s goal. We are in a position of strength. We want the goal achieve and we will do everything for it. I hope it will happen and we will work for it every day.”

BVB, News: Nico Schlotterbeck reviews the end of the World Cup

The surprising exit of the German national team in the World Cup preliminary round in Qatar was also attributed to Nico Schlotterbeck, who had lost the decisive duel when they conceded a 1-2 goal against Japan. He talked about that now table football: “Of course I thought a lot about the scene afterwards and thought about how I could have solved it better,” he revealed. “It quickly became a blanket criticism. Suddenly it was said that I had only shown bad games in the first half of the season because a lot was reduced to this one scene. I didn’t think so.”

“But he didn’t play as consistently as my goal. I made mistakes that led to goals being conceded,” he said self-critically. “It hurt to drop out of the World Cup. I had to work my way out of this disappointment, even though I didn’t fall into a deep hole. I felt like playing football again relatively quickly.”

But he himself also “made some mistakes”, reveals Schlotterbeck: “Maybe I should have given a few interviews less and concentrated more on my game. […] I’ve learned to be more humble and talk less.”

BVB is doing much better, before the Bayern summit, Borussia is in first place. “Bayern’s defeat came as quite a surprise to me on Sunday, but it didn’t really change much for us,” he explained. “We are very satisfied with how things are going at BVB. With the results, also with our style of play. If the others make a mistake, it’s obviously good for us.”
