  • Zorc wants to keep Pulisic “long-term”

Lothar Matthäus made headlines last week when he suggested Bayern should sign Christian Pulisic, raiding their biggest rival yet again. However Michael Zorc has now stated that Dortmund have no intention of letting Pulisic go and the plan is to keep him “long-term” with the black and yellows.

Pulisic extended his contract at the start of the year until summer 2020 and during last summer he stated "I couldn't go to Bayern. Usually, you can't say something like that, but no." We have heard those comments before so we should probably be a bit wary of comments like that but we believe him...for now.

  • WC-draw pots

The qualification rounds are done, now we know which 32 teams will compete for the most prestigious trophy in all of football next summer. The pots for the draw are set and we can speculate about which team could possibly be the “group of death”. The draw will take place on Friday, December 1st in Moscow.
