In an interview with kicker Michael Zorc has confirmed that Lucien Favre will remain BVB coach no matter what happens in the last three games of the Bundesliga season:
“We definitely go with him into the new season, regardless of whether we become champions or not.”
The Swiss coach has helped to stabilize Dortmund and has lead them to a title race that nobody thought possible before the season. Negotiations for an extension have been put on ice until after the season but it’s likely that an extension will happen this summer.
Nico Schulz is rumored to be one of the candidates for Dortmund’s left back position and he seems willing to move on from TSG Hoffenheim this summer. The fullback has admitted that he considers Borussia Dortmund an intriguing option:
“I’m in the best football age, I’m a national team player, so you have to weigh exactly which step is the right one.” [...] “I’d like to switch to a top club once, the people in charge know that, it’s no secret, so if a club really comes knocking, I’m now at an age when we need to sit down and decide if the time has come.“
“There are some top clubs [...] Dortmund is definitely one of them.”
Borussia Dortmund’s new home kit for the 2019/20 season has leaked. Apart from the shoulders it’s relatively simple and of course in the usual black and yellow.

- Champions League
It was the Messi-show. Liverpool travelled to Barcelona with the objective to get a good result at the Camp Nou for the return leg at Anfield but Lionel Messi had other plans. Jèrgen Klopp’s team did not actually play a bad game but they were not able to convert their chances while Barca was clinical in front of the goal. In the end the scoreline somewhat flatters Barcelona a little bit, but that’s just the advantage you get when you have the best player in the world.
