BVB, News: Nico Schulz makes a comeback in the U23
Nico Schulz (29) has not yet been used by coach Edin Terzic at the pros this season. In the current international break, however, the left-back was back on the field for the first time: Schulz played a total of 60 minutes for the U23s in the friendly match against Go Ahead Eagles Deventer – but the match was lost 4-2.
It is unclear if Schulz will be an option for Terzic again. Noisy Ruhr news must be decided as soon as possible.
The club are no longer dependent on the 12-time international and would have preferred to give him up this summer, but there was no change. Schulz still has a contract at Dortmund until 2023.
BVB, News: New assistant coach for U23
Borussia Dortmund have announced that Julian Koch has committed as assistant coach for the U23s. The former professional takes over the previously vacant position and becomes head coach Christian Preusser’s right-hand man.
As a player, Koch had been through BVB’s youth team and played a total of 54 times for the second team, including two appearances in the Bundesliga. In 2019, he ended his active career. “I’m really happy to be back home and able to work successfully on the field,” he said.
BVB, News: Jude Bellingham “annoyed” teammate Delaney
Thomas Delaney left BVB in the summer of 2021 after three years at Sevilla FC. Now the two teams meet in the group stage of the Champions League (October 5 and 11). “I only have good memories of the city and the stadium,” says the Dane in an interview with the club’s media.
However, he hates playing against young Dortmund star Jude Bellingham: “He has the greed you need to play at the highest level.” And: “He’s annoying. He goes to the limit all the time, tries to provoke and upset you.”
Bellingham is a “team player who does everything for his team and also crosses red lines. As an opponent, I find him very, very annoying,” Delaney explained.
