Good Morning Fear The Wall

With the clock running down to the start of the season, we’re pretty light on Borussia Dortmund news for the Daily Bee. BVB are currently 3-0 up on Bologna at half time, in a friendly that everyone will definitely think means things. Reyna, Maloney, Tigges got the goals. This must mean they’re starters next season.

Anyway, here’s what little news exists in the BVB world right now.

Hummels May Return Sooner than Expected

Mats Hummels has returned to the squad and joined them at Bad Ragaz, despite carrying a knee injury. Having had a closer look, Watzke has claimed that Hummels will be back on the pitch much sooner than was initially feared. This is obviously wonderful news. Or he’s wrong and it’s going to spoil everyone’s August.

Schmelzer returns to training

Speaking of old people that still claim to have it, BVB legend and one of the few Dortmund players older than me, Marcel Schmelzer, has returned to training for the first time in over a year! He’s doing it for the rest of us who ache when he wake up in the morning but still dream of hitting the big time.
