After the 1: 4-swatter against RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund is the leaders in the center of criticism. Record international Lothar Matthäus highlighted the achievements of Marco Reus and Mats Hummels, but at the same time suggested the BVB duo.
“When players come to a certain age, I feel reminded my own career,” Lothar Matthäus leads out in his column for “Sky”.
In 2000 he was changed from FC Bayern “in a so-called Operettenliga to America,” since he was “just no longer able to keep the level in Munich in Munich.
This problem sees the 60-year-old now also at Marco Reus and Mats Hummels. At both nage of the tooth of the time, “injuries pile up, the pace suffers and with missing rhythm and lack of continuity becomes worse,” says Matthew.
BVB: Matthew suggests Reus and Hummels say goodbye
Although he can not know the plans of the two BVB routiniers, but could “imagine that it is not easy for their supervisors of Kehl and Zorc or the coaches Rose and Zickler to talk to them about the future and possibly nearly close themselves To look for another task, “said Matthew.
Ultimately, the players themselves would ask themselves the question of how to continue with you at BVB. “Maybe,” says Matthäus, “a new adventure is not the worst idea”.
Reus and Hummels have a contract at the BVB until 2023. Reus made his 350 compulsory game for the black and yellow, his yield of 153 goals and 108 templates is outstanding. Even in the current season, in which the Dortmund ultimately remains without title, the 32-year-old with 19 goal parties is second best BVB scorer.
Hummels was braked by problems on the patellasende this season. Nevertheless, he was so far in 22 Bundesliga games for the BVB for on the lawn.
BVB has “partially embarrassed”
Overall, Matthew made a good hair at the cutting of BVB. Because the black and yellow in the Cup competitions “sang- and schloss” had left and “partially embarrassed”, the seasonal result was “cruelly” despite the room in the Bundesliga.
In his criticism Matthew in his criticism explicitly also coach Marco Rose. Nevertheless, it is not his fault if his players “lose the ball with a risky dribbling”.
Nevertheless, the “Sky” expert stated: “You have to say that Edin Terzic has sparked more euphoria and enthusiasm in the weeks in which he has trained the team, and has certainly not play a worse football.” However, so Matthäus, this “No demand for a new or old coach”.
