Good morning everyone!

So the Super Bowl was yesterday. While I’m not a huge NFL fan, I’m also not one of those faux-edgy American soccer fans who claims that the NFL is “boring” and that “OMG the ‘real’ football is so much better.” American football is entertaining, soccer is entertaining, and judging by the reactions from soccer stars around the world to Tom Brady’s record-setting seventh super bowl victory, there’s plenty of room for people to follow both:

After the game was over, there was the usual procession of online debate regarding Brady’s hypothetical status as “the GOAT.” In my opinion he already earned that label for the NFL years ago. As for comparing between sports, I think that’s pretty dumb. Thomas Delaney is clearly the greatest of all time, and any comparisons between him and Tom Brady are frankly ridiculous.

As for the game itself, I was casually rooting for the Chiefs and it wasn’t a particularly close game so I didn’t enjoy it too much, but in my opinion the Superbowl is really just an excuse to eat a bunch of greasy food and drink beer on a Sunday night anyway.

Anyway, because this is ostensibly supposed to be a Borussia Dortmund blog:

Jurgen Klopp Praises Emre Can

Before he came to BVB, Emre Can was a budding midfielder under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. After struggling to find a place in the squad, he departed Merseyside for Juventus, expressing his desire to win trophies. While some speculated that Can and Klopp has experienced a breakdown, Klopp claimed in a recent interview that this wasn’t the case.

Klopp claimed that Can is a perfect fit for Borussia Dortmund. The article itself also makes a good case, using data from FBRef.com to demonstrate how Can has benefited BVB. It’s worth a read.
