Why BVB also fetches Schlotterbeck
Once Antonio Rüdiger stood next to him, once Jonathan Tah: Nico Schlotterbeck has not yet gained the experience of acting at the side of Niklas Süle with his two international matches so far – this will change next season. Because after the Munich -based company, the previous Freiburger to Borussia Dortmund, together at BVB they should form the central defense of the future.
- Süle and Schlotterbeck are only the beginning of the upheaval
- Manunited attracts Akanji – Zagadou before saying goodbye
The need for a refreshment on the defensive of the black and yellow is obvious. Dortmund conceded 50 goals on the 32 game days of the Bundesliga so far, in the cup competitions there were an additional 19 in eleven games. However, to be determined far too short to fix the central defense, often it only stood at the end of an error chain or had to oppose an overnight loss of opposing attackers after a high ball loss. And yet Süle and Schlotterbeck should be upgrading with their duel, their pace and their conviction for the new employer.
Süle and Schlotterbeck are only the beginning of the upheaval
It is the beginning of a major change that will probably stretch over several transfer periods. It is the first two transfers of the soon-to-be sports director Sebastian Kehl, who was able to set two thick exclamation marks and once went the same way as a young national player from the more tranquil Breisgau to Dortmund.
A change requires access as well as departures. It has long been clear that Marin Pongracic has no future in Dortmund. The loan from Wolfsburg was able to convince only sporadically and also noticed negative with a generous interview with team interna.
Manunited attracts Akanji – Zagadou before saying goodbye
BVB, on the other hand, would have liked to extend with Manuel Akanji, the Swiss contract is still running until 2023. But the service provider, with his national team, also WM participants, will very likely take the chance to take the next step in the summer and probably in summer and probably Switch to a top English club. Hot candidate is still Manchester United.
Dan-Axel Zagadou is currently defending next to him. The French has accompanied the hope of the big breakthrough since his change from Paris St. Germain in 2018. The 22-year-old, who is physically strong and often proves a good eye in the game, has many systems for this. But his susceptibility to injuries is striking, Zagadou was always missing due to muscle injuries or kniveling, he did not become a permanent regular player. At the moment everything looks like the contract that expires this summer is no longer extended – especially since the services also fluctuated heavily and he made too many blatant mistakes.
It remains alongside all -round weapon emre can the eternal Mats Hummels. After difficult preparation and lengthy knee problems, the world champion plays an average to mixed season with increasing performance curve in the second half of the season. His experience should become important for the young team around him, but at least in the coming season. So he could give the middle man in a triple chain between Süle and Schlotterbeck and, in addition to two faster players, play out his strengths.
