The Bavarians? “They should come”

That’s what BVB coach Rose says about the surprising Haaland comeback

Erling Haaland is available again for Borussia Dortmund much earlier than expected after his hip flexor injury. You can find out here in the video how BVB coach Marco Rose rates the striker’s chances of playing against Wolfsburg.

On Saturday Borussia Dortmund welcomes FC Bayern. BVB managing director Watzke strikes self-confident tones and supports his coach, but expects fewer spectators due to planned new corona measures. The originally 67,000 tickets sold were canceled on Wednesday.

TIn spite of the surprising and disgraceful preliminary round in the Champions League, BVB managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke is still convinced of his coach Marco Rose. “You can certainly say that he is an excellent fit for the club. You just notice that. And to be quite honest, we don’t just have to be obscured by the stupid Champions League outlook. We scored 30 points from 13 games in the Bundesliga. We haven’t been able to do that too often, ”said Watzke to Sky.

He experiences the coach, who was brought in from Borussia Mönchengladbach in the summer, “very focused”. Rose has to “get used to all these things that happen around Borussia Dortmund”, explained Watzke: “There is already pressure here, that is absolutely clear. He’s got all that on his mind now. And I am very, very satisfied with him. “

The elimination in the premier class against clubs like Ajax, Sporting Lisbon and Besiktas, which costs the club around ten million euros, does not annoy Watzke that much financially. “Borussia Dortmund’s business card is worse. We want to be represented in the Champions League already. And the fact that we didn’t manage to do that in the group stage is a bit draining on us. ”In economic terms, the end of the Champions League with the entry into the Europa League final can even be surpassed. But only then.

Looking to the future of top striker Erling Haaland, Watzke would like the Norwegian not to leave the club in the summer. “For his development, it would be great if he stayed with us a little longer,” said the BVB boss. “But if at the end of the day it is not so, then we will accept it. And then we will find solutions again. That is also perfectly clear. It’s in BVB’s DNA, ”said Watzke. Haaland is said to have a release clause in the contract at the end of the season.

“Appear courageous and self-confident”

As the Bundesliga summit of Dortmund against league leaders Bayern Munich on Saturday evening (6.30 p.m., in the sports ticker of the WELT) is getting closer, Watzke struck belligerent tones. “If you win 17 of the last 20 Bundesliga games, then you should have enough self-confidence. In Wolfsburg we showed what we are capable of when we are reasonably complete. That will continue, ”he said.

He expects from his team “that we appear courageous, that we appear self-confident”. Rose was not only self-confident after Dortmund’s victory in Wolfsburg. “I experience him combative every day. And that’s the way it is, they should come, ”said the manager. The top teams are currently only separated by one point.

He would have been happy at such a top game if 67,000 spectators had been able to enter the stadium. “But to be fair, we have to say that we now also have to pay tribute to the pandemic situation we have. We cannot completely disengage ourselves from that, ”stressed Watzke. “I would only wish football were less attacked by populists and more simply factual and sensible. Because it is also clear that the Bundesliga has not been a pandemic driver at all so far. “

On Saturday it will “of course happen that we play with significantly fewer spectators. I think you can say that. And that takes away that very special feeling, ”said the 62-year-old.

In view of the precarious Corona situation, it is becoming increasingly unlikely that the top game can take place as planned in front of a large crowd, North Rhine-Westphalia’s Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst announced after the federal-state consultations on Tuesday that the number of spectators would also be restricted in football stadiums. “What matters is: There can and will not be pictures like those from the weekend in Cologne,” said Wüst with reference to the Bundesliga game between 1. FC Cologne and Borussia Mönchengladbach. The arena was sold out with 50,000 spectators.

Wüst did not commit to a specific number of possible viewers. One will wait for the decisions of the Bund-Länder-Round on Thursday, which will then also be implemented in North Rhine-Westphalia.
