- BVB stars singing Christmas songs
Borussia Dortmund’s players, coaches, staff and about 30.000 fans came together yesterday in the Signal Iduna Park to sing BVB and Christmas songs. A nice event for everyone involved and here’s a small sample of the performance.

Michael Zorc had a few interesting things to say during his interview with Sky on Sunday. Most importantly he revealed Aubameyang’s contract extension but he also talked about Dortmund’s issues with Aubameyang: “Auba is a very special player. [...] He’s extravagant, he’s extroverted, a unique character [...] which, by the way is good for a city like Dortmund. We have one problem with him and that’s punctuality. That’s not just in the last few weeks, but rather months or last season. [...] Other than that he’s an absolute professional.”
Naturally he was also asked about the coaching situation and the possibility of hiring Julian Nagelsmann next summer:
Michael #Zorc: "Julian #Nagelsmann has a contract with Hoffenheim and we will always respect that. [...] We have some ideas and thoughts for the future, obviously, but for now everything's been said." [Sky] #BVB— Ralf Hildenbrand (@ralfhil) December 17, 2017
That doesn’t sound like a denial and we’ll probably hear about this until next summer. Nagelsmann seems to be the choice but there are doubts about Hoffenheim letting him go, Dortmund would have to pay a fee to get him. He has a release clause in his contract but the clause doesn’t take effect until the summer of 2019.
Asked about possible transfers in January, Zorc pointed towards the difficulty of “winter-transfers”. Clubs aren’t willing to let their best players go mid-season but he stated that they’ll think about transfers once the game against Bayern Munich on Wednesday is done.
