BVB Linked With Thomas Strakosha
Borussia Dortmund have clearly given up on their current roster of goalkeepers, and are now aggressively pursuing every single goalkeeper in the world, as demonstrated by the constant sea of rumors linking them to anybody that owns a pair of gloves (mittens included). The latest goalkeeper to receive some attention is the Lazio shot-stopper, Thomas Strakosha.
The rumors have gained enough momentum that Strakosha himself felt the need to respond.
Thomas Strakosha about @BVB: “Dortmund is a huge club. They have a young and ambitious team. Of course it’s an interesting club. Their stadium is incredible. I would be lying if I said that I’m not interested” #TransferUpdate pic.twitter.com/QOInv74nxm— Max Bielefeld (@Sky_MaxB) February 8, 2021
He certainly sounds like he would entertain the possibility of moving to Germany.
Hazard Returns to Training
Thorgan Hazard has had a tough time this season, struggling with injuries for almost the entire campaign, and managing only 165 total minutes so far. BVB have clearly felt his absence too, so fans will be very pleased to hear that Hazard has now returned to training. Fingers crossed we will see him back on the pitch very soon!
Auch hallo! @HazardThorgan8 ist zurück im Mannschaftstraining und netzt schon, bevor es überhaupt losgeht! pic.twitter.com/zomUd6KLav— Borussia Dortmund (@BVB) February 9, 2021
Lets All Head to Hungary
Having banned most travel from countries that are impacted by the new variants of COVID-19, Germany has put a huge spanner in the Champions League works. The UK, which has not been handling the coronavirus pandemic very well, is one of those countries, and Liverpool and Man City were planning to travel to Germany to face Borussia Monchengladbach and RB Leipzig in the last-16 of the Champions League.
UEFA and the clubs have manged to resolve the situation, however, by moving the German legs of the tie to Hungary. Gladbach will face City at the Puskas Arena, in Budapest, on 24th February, while RB Leipzig will face Liverpool at the same stadium on 16th February.
No One Cares about the Club World Cup
Some stuff happened in a rubbish cup that no one cares about anyway. Bayern Munich progressed to the final of the Club World Cup, beating Al Ahly 2-0 in the semi final, both goals scored by Robert Lewandowski. They will now face Tigres in the final on Thursday 11th February.

What a lot of rubbish. Wouldn’t catch my team playing in this chump cup.
The Daily Buzz
The Puskas Arena is stunning, but what stadium (in any sport) tops your bucket list? Mine is La Bombonera.
