- Reyna in RN
Gio Reyna is big news in Dortmund and across the pond. Since he joined the first team on a permanent basis in January he has fit right in with BVB. Reyna, the son of USMNT legend has played for the USMNT youth teams for years. Despite that, there was speculation he may accept a call out from a National Team that is more competent, such as England which he also qualified for. In a interview with RN Reyna restates his commitment to the USMNT saying that “I only want to play for the United States, That’s my home country.” Good news for fans of the USMNT as Reyna can only improve as he ages.
- Pokal results
The last two matches of the Pokal quarter finals were yesterday. Leverkusen beat Union Berlin 3-1 and Frankfurt beat Werder 2-0. Both games had some really impressive goals and the TSG match ended with a stupid funny red from Kostic to get himself banned for the semi’s. So overall it was a good entertainment product.
The Semi final draw will be this Sunday March 6th at 6 PM CST.
- Bellingham hype
There is not much new news for BVBs acquisition of Enlgish 16 year old Jude Bellingham from Birmingham City. There is speculation that Birmingham and BVB will settle for a fee but none of the reputable sources have anything definite today. With Moukoko, Reyna, Sancho and Bellingham BVB could become a team with all of the best young talent in the world. Lets hope!
- Zorc condemns fan protests
With fans across the league protesting the DFBs preferential treatment of Hoffenheim owner Dietmar Hopp, BVB Sports Director Michael Zorc was asked to weigh in. I’ll leave you to read his comments here but I find his take to be mostly safe. He says there shouldn't be attacks against individuals but that the attacks against Hopp shouldn't be lumped in with racism or homophobia.
Daily Buzz: Do you think we’ll see more protests this weekend?
