- Oelschlägel extends his contract
Eric Oelschlägel has extended his contract with Borussia Dortmund for one year. The 23-year-old has mostly played for BVB II in the Regionalliga and has just one appearance for the first team, BVB’s loss against Werder Bremen in the DFB Cup. Next season will likely be mostly the same for him as the third string goalkeeper and mainly playing for the second team.
Borussia Dortmund might not have a place for Raphael Guerreiro in the squad after their recent acquisitions. According to kicker Guerreiro could extend his contract “but there is no particularly pronounced tendency on both sides”, instead the left back/winger could end up with former BVB coach Thomas Tuchel in Paris. However PSG will not be able to focus on a possible Guerreiro transfer until Neymar’s situation is sorted out.
kicker also states that the club has no intention of letting Julian Weigl leave. Reports from yesterday claimed Dortmund had set the price for the midfielder but apparently the club officials are planning with Weigl and are not letting him go, no matter the offer.
- BVB vs KFC Uerdingen
Borussia Dortmund’s game against KFC Uerdingen in the first round of the DFB Cup has been scheduled for Friday August 9th at 20.45h CET.
Borussia Dortmund sadly don’t have a women’s football team and they might be the biggest remaining club in world without one. This has been talked about in the past and now that the Women’s World Cup is ongoing it’s finally back as a topic of discussion.
Talking to Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung German international Lina Magull seemed disappointed with the club, asked if she was aggravated by the situation she replied:
“Yes. So much potential in the Ruhr area and in Dortmund. You could really achieve something with BVB. Many good players have already said that they would play for BVB immediately.“
BVB does have a women’s handball team and a blind football team but there seem to be no plans to create a women’s football division for now,
Daily Buzz: What the hell is happening at Bayern Munich?
The Bavarians are used to getting what they want but it seems like that narrative might change, at least for this summer. No team will always be able to sign all their preferred targets but it looks like Bayern will get rebuffed by Rodrigo, Leroy Sané and now also Ozan Kabak, who prefers a move to Schalke of all places.
In addition Bayern also sold Hummels to BVB seemingly because they made it clear to him that he’ll only be option number three behind Hernandez and Süle despite being arguably the best defender during the second half of the past season and they made it clear that Jerome Boateng also has no real future at the club.
To top it all off they seem to have no real strategy what kind of player, or even for which position, they want to acquire. It’s still early, in fact the transfer window hasn’t even opened yet, but it’s still an unusual situation for Bayern.
How do you see their situation, what would you do if you were in charge of Bayern or do you think they don’t even need reinforcements to win the Bundesliga again?
