Ex-Bayern striker – “Arjeeen”: Thomas Müller celebrates Robben comeback

The comeback of old star Arjen Robben in the jersey of the Dutch first division soccer club FC Groningen has brought good memories of times together for Thomas Müller from FC Bayern.

“Arjeeen the comeback at the right time – come with us to Paris as a joker,” wrote Müller on Instagram under a photo of Robben when he returned to the square. The German record champions play this Tuesday (9 p.m.) in the quarter-final second leg of the Champions League at Paris Saint-Germain and have to make up a 2-3 defeat in the first leg.

Robben (37) had played for Munich for ten years at the side of Müller in his successful career and scored several important goals – including in the final of the premier class in 2013 in London against Borussia Dortmund to the 2-1 final score.

His comeback game was less successful: Groningen lost 2-0 to Heerenveen on Sunday. Robben was substituted on a good ten minutes before the end after a protracted injury break. It was only his third outing for his new club, to which he surprisingly switched last summer, and the first since October 2020.

Change to BVB? Wild rumors about Jerome Boateng

It’s clear that Jérôme Boateng will leave FC Bayern after the current season – but where is the former national player going then? Now there is speculation about a cracker change.

According to a media report, Borussia Dortmund is considering signing ex-national player Jérôme Boateng from Bayern Munich. The 32-year-old’s contract with the record champions expires in the summer. According to the “Sportbuzzer” portal (Saturday), BVB will discuss an obligation for the defender.

According to information from the “WAZ”, the ex-world champion’s move to Dortmund should be unlikely. The Bundesliga club is looking for more leading players. A professional who has already passed his peak but should not be brought in, can be heard from the club. “Sport1” reporter Patrick Berger also reported on Saturday that Boateng would not switch to the black and yellow. The club have no interest in the defensive player.

There was initially no reaction from Dortmund to the rumors. According to the “Bild” newspaper, Boateng is a candidate for the London club Tottenham Hotspur. He should also be under discussion at the Spanish top club FC Barcelona.

During the week it became known that Boateng’s contract with Bayern would not be extended in the summer. The club management decided that together, said Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic. Boateng joined the Munich team from Manchester City in 2011. Among other things, he won the Champions League with the team in 2013 and 2020.

Eintracht Frankfurt’s Luka Jovic: “I’m going back to Real Madrid”

Luka Jovic confirms that he feels really comfortable at Eintracht Frankfurt. But he also makes it clear that he’s going back to Real.

Eintracht Frankfurt’s Luka Jovic has reiterated that he will return to Real Madrid this summer. The Serbian is currently on loan from the Royal to his ex-club. “Everyone knows that I am officially a Real Madrid player, which is where I will return at the end of the season,” said Jovic picture-Newspaper.

At Eintracht, the striker has scored three goals and one assist in twelve appearances this season, after he hadn’t run at all in the year and a half in Madrid. “For me, Eintracht is a special club in every respect,” said Jovic now.

Real wants to take back a large part of the 63 million

The Frankfurt fans can have little hope that the striker will be firmly committed again by the Hessians, because Real will try to recover a large part of the 63 million euros transfer fee they paid in a possible resale in the summer. Usually too much money for Eintracht, which can only hope to qualify for the Champions League to make the transfer.

“It is logical that I will only be able to talk about the further development of my career in a few months”, the 23-year-old left it open as to how things will go on for him.

FC Bayern: Consultant warns of “risk” at Nübel – 3 clubs interested

Three clubs show interest

Substitute goalkeeper Alexander Nübel wants to leave Bayern on loan after the season, according to his advisor. “We continue to pursue the issue of Alex being loaned out,” said Stefan Backs to the “kicker”. The 24-year-old goalkeeper came to Munich last summer from Schalke on a free transfer, but has only played three competitive games as a back-up for national goalkeeper Manuel Neuer (35). “Flick has a clear line and success with it,” says Backs, “so there is nothing to be said against it.”

Nonetheless, the Nübel consultant emphasized again: “Alex needs regular match practice, a few missions are not enough.” According to the magazine, Nübel wants to be awarded for two years, and Neuer ‘s working paper will end in Munich in the summer of 2023.

When negotiating the contract, the idea of ​​building Nübel to number one in Munich should be “pursued further,” said Backs, who warned, however, of the “risk” that this career plan would fail if Nübel only had a place on the bank until 2023 would take: “Then Alex will no longer be number one at Bayern. And then FC Bayern doesn’t get any of it. How is he supposed to get number one with five games? That will not do.”

Three clubs interested in Nübel – FC Bayern “totally convinced”

In addition to AS Monaco, which has already been associated with Nübel, two other clubs are said to be interested in the Bayern goalkeeper – “Sport1” recently reported interest from Dortmund and Marseille. The designated Munich board boss Oliver Kahn had rejected loan plans after a first public push by Backs in March. “Alexander Nübel remains our number two,” said Kahn. “We are totally convinced of this goalkeeper.”

Club legend Kiraly is apparently not the new goalkeeping coach

For Hertha, every point in the relegation battle is at stake. But now, of all times, the capital club is missing a coach after the dismissal of Zsolt Petry. Apparently it will not be an alleged preferred candidate.

The Berlin goalkeepers Alexander Schwolow, Rune Jarstein and Nils Körber are currently without a coach. After the dismissal of goalkeeping coach Zsolt Petry, Hertha BSC is thinking about a suitable successor – and probably had an ex-professional of the club in their sights.

Because according to “Bild” the capital club was considering bringing club legend Gabor Kiraly to the club. The Hungarian wore the Berlin shirt himself from 1997 to 2004 and is still associated with his former club. In an interview he recently said, according to “Bild”: “I follow Hertha every day, even if I am a good 1,000 kilometers away. Of course, I always stick with it.”

“I have daily tasks in Hungary”

However, the sheet now reports: Kiraly has canceled Hertha. “It is an honor that my name appears as someone who can help my ex-club in the fight for survival,” he is said to have said in the Hungarian daily “Blikk”. “Now, however, I have daily tasks in Hungary.”

However, according to “Bild”, the rejection also has personal reasons – the father of the former Hungarian national goalkeeper recently passed away.

Dardai and Kiraly are friends

Kiraly’s trademark when he was active was his gray sweatpants, which he always wore to games.

He currently runs the “Kiraly Sports Center” in his hometown of Szombathely, which also includes a goalkeeping school. The ex-keeper is also friends with Hertha coach Pal Dardai. The club has not yet issued a statement.


BVB plans for the summer revealed

For the first time in six years, Borussia Dortmund will probably miss qualifying for the Champions League this season. The BVB team could actually use a makeover. Due to the difficult financial situation, also due to the Corona crisis, only a “light upheaval” is to be expected.

BVB is seven points behind the Champions League ranks after the bitter 1: 2 bankruptcy against direct rivals Eintracht Frankfurt.

Should Borussia catch up in the remaining seven Bundesliga games, it would be a little football miracle – just like if the black and yellow win the premier class and secure a ticket for the coming season in this way. So everything boils down to the most important club competition in the world taking place in 2021/2022 without Dortmund participation.

The millions of revenue lost as a result are missing in the war chest of BVB, which should actually go on a big shopping tour in the summer in view of the disappointing performance in recent months. In addition, there are the lost revenues due to the Corona crisis, in particular due to the ongoing ghost games.

Felix Uduokhai a topic at BVB?

According to “Sport Bild” there will be no major upheaval after the season at Westphalia. Sports director Michael Zorc, his designated successor Sebastian Kehl and Co. still want to turn a few screws.

A new man for central defense is urgently needed. In addition to Maxence Lacroix from VfL Wolfsburg, who has been trading at BVB for weeks, Augsburg’s Felix Uduokhai should also be an issue. The 23-year-old, who was appointed to the DFB team by Joachim Löw for the first time in 2020, would cost a whopping 15 million euros.

BVB also needs reinforcements on the offensive wings – one player if Jadon Sancho, contrary to expectations, does not leave the club in the summer, even two if the Englishman finds a club that pays the called 100 million euros plus X for him.

In this context, “Sport Bild” once again brings Donyell Malen (PSV Eindhoven) and Memphis Depay (Olympique Lyon) into discussion. The latter would even be available free of charge due to his expiring contract, but without the Champions League he would probably not be keen on playing in black and yellow in the future.

BVB: What will happen to Nico Schulz and Felix Passlack?

On the other hand, the deliberations of the BVB officials to sign a new number one for the goal should be off the table. Instead, Marwin Hitz and Roman Bürki will probably continue to duel for the regular place between the posts.

If you believe “Sport Bild”, Nico Schulz could leave BVB in addition to the established departures of Marcel Schmelzer and Lukasz Piszczek. The national player, who was signed for 25 million euros from Hoffenheim in 2019, has remained a foreign body in his second season in Dortmund so far.

According to the report, Felix Passlack will take over his place as a substitute for Raphael Guerreiro on the left defense. The expiring contract with the home grown is to be extended for this purpose.


Bus driver Mats Hummels probably forgot in the stadium

Things are not going well for Borussia Dortmund this season. And as if that weren’t enough, one of the team’s most important players was probably left behind after a game.

The mood at Borussia Dortmund is tense. Against Manchester City it continued on Tuesday evening in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League a 1: 2 defeat, also threatens the club to miss the premier class in the coming season. The fourth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt already has seven points ahead of the fifth in the table from Dortmund. But BVB must conquer the rank of Frankfurt in order to qualify for the premier class.

And internally, too, not everything is currently going smoothly. The “Sport Bild” reports that Vice-Captain Mats Hummels was forgotten in the stadium after the 2-2 game in Cologne on March 20.

Accordingly, the Dortmund team bus drove off without him. The problem: Hummels probably talked to Cologne players for a long time. According to the report, the defender then had to drive back to Dortmund in a minibus with employees.
