BVB, News: Insider gives insights into Haaland’s time in Dortmund
Jan-Aage Fjörtoft, close confidant of ex-BVB star Erling Haaland, explained why the Norwegian found his way around Dortmund so quickly. In the closest circle, next to his family, Ivar Eggja is particularly important – “the girl for everything. When Erling came to Dortmund, his whole apartment was ready. Erling told me that that was an important reason for his lightning start. It was the same it in England,” said Fjörtoft in the sports picture.
In Fjörtoft’s opinion, Haaland’s team is “still totally underestimated. Mino Raiola, who unfortunately passed away, was not the only one at his side. The consultant agency with Rafaela Pimenta, who makes the contracts, is still very important. The real CEO But his team is his dad, who controls everything in the background.” Now there is another manager with Egil Östenstad, Fjörtoft describes the ex-footballer as “financial director”.
“They get people they trust and who understand their environment.” This also includes a nutrition expert and a mental trainer. Fjörtoft himself was surprised “how systematically his environment works” and how detailed the selection of new clubs is. Among other things, a points system was used in the decision for City.
Next Tuesday, Halaand will return to Dortmund with his new club when the second leg in the Champions League is due – a very special evening for the striker: “I know that he felt very comfortable in Dortmund and loved the yellow wall. Through “Due to the pandemic, he hasn’t had as many games in front of the full south stand as he would have liked. He will look forward to it as much as his friends in the BVB dressing room,” said Fjörtoft.
In addition, the ex-Frankfurt striker expects that Jude Bellingham could follow a path similar to Haaland. Bidding for the youngster will “develop the same force on the transfer market as Erling did last summer. He too will one day be one of the best players in the world. An amazing guy! With the responsibility he takes on and with the many different ones Positions he can play will be a top priority for the big clubs.”
BVB, rumor: Is Reus missing in Hanover at short notice?
At the press conference on Tuesday, BVB coach Edin Terzic only mentioned Marius Wolf as a certain failure, apart from the long-term injuries, with a view to the cup game in Hanover. With Marco Reus, however, a big name could be added. As the Ruhr news report, the captain was absent on Tuesday when the team bus left for Hanover. Half an hour earlier he had left the training ground in a private car.
The exact reasons are unknown. He only made his comeback on Sunday in the defeat in Berlin, after having been out for almost four weeks due to a torn ligament in his ankle. He came on as a substitute at half-time but was unable to turn things around.
BVB, News: Terzic talks about a conversation with Karim Adeyemi
BVB trainer Edin Terzic reported to PK on Tuesday about a one-on-one meeting with Karim Adeyemi. After the defeat at Union Berlin, he had questioned the switch to a three-man chain after he had previously conceded the second goal.
“He was very insightful,” said Terzic: “But we all conceded the goal. Not just Karim, not just Gregor Kobel, but the whole team. Too many mistakes were made before that. We didn’t give him enough space, he didn’t have a passing station – then he takes the heel.”
