BVB midfielder Julian Brandt was struck down by a mysterious illness for weeks. At the weekend he went on a short assignment that was difficult for him. The 27-year-old is now reporting on his suffering.

Julian Brandt gave an interview to his friend Montana Black. MontanaBlack, it perhaps needs to be said briefly, grew up with videos about video games. Very big in his world, which is primarily at home on YouTube. MontanaBlack is 35 years old and, as is often seen, he drives a 570 hp Mercedes tuned by AMG. He comes from Buxtehude and his actual name is Marcel Thomas Andreas Eris. But his fans mostly just call him Monte. He has a few of them, 3.7 million on Instagram or almost three million on YouTube.

National player Brandt from Borussia Dortmund has now revealed to MontanaBlack that he was ill. Very sick, actually. He struggled with severe symptoms. “I was really knocked out for two weeks and felt like I had the plague. I was dead, I lost six kilos,” said the 27-year-old. Brandt returned to the pitch after a break on the last matchday and came on as a substitute in BVB’s 3-0 win against SC Freiburg. He came on in the 66th minute and WELT AM SONNTAG gave him a grade of 3 for his performance. But he struggled, that came through in the conversation with MontanaBlack.

“The thing with the air” wasn’t so easy during his deployment, the midfielder reported: “You really come into it as if you hadn’t done anything for six weeks.” It was “not entirely clear” what he had , told. The symptoms were like “a bad flu”.

“For anyone who wants to go on a diet”

No Corona, that much is certain, “but eight days of fever. This takes a while. Then you’re impatient, stare at the wall, don’t eat anything – then everything isn’t so great for the current season.” But, he says, “I can definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to go on a diet.”

What he can apparently also recommend: watching games from his former club Bayer Leverkusen. With MontanaBlack he talked about last weekend’s game against Bayern, the painful abrasion of the Munich team.

“The young ones are playing well,” enthused Brandt, “Leverkusen are really a good team. They were good last season too, but this season they are really strong again. They’re really having a crazy season. We played there too (1:1 in the Bundesliga, the editorial team)“It was cat and mouse.”
