Nagelsmann about Lewandowski: knows how his thoughts are

The likelihood that Robert Lewandowski will continue to wear FC Bayern’s jersey in the coming season has decreased in the past few days. The Polish top scorer does not want to extend his contract in 2023 and prefer to switch to FC Barcelona immediately, where a three -year contract he waves to him in Munich – Lewandowski will not be preserved in August 34.

Nagelsmann’s attitude is known, at least publicly the master coach always speaks for an extension of Lewandowski, according to his own statement he is planning the coming season “quite normal” with the FIFA world footballer. “I do not give any information about all other topics that take place in discussions. I never talk about things that I discuss with players under four eyes. You have to ask Robert.”

He does not want to take a change veto: “There is a very important credo of my coaching: never take too important and never take yourself more important than you are.

2. League: Bremen rises, HSV as third to Hertha

Schalke is master

FC Schalke also won the second division championship on the last matchday of the season. The team of coach Mike Büskens won the duel of the old master in Nuremberg 2-1. Zalazar put an art shot for the Schalke lead from a proud 59 meters in the top right of the FCN box, and Limmer equalized late for the club. But the last word had second division record goalkeeper Terodde, who promptly replied to the 2-1 away win. It was his 30th goal this season.

thanks to Füllkrug and Ducksch: Werder follows the tight

Werder Bremen is the second direct climber – and with it the second direct returnee to the German Oberhaus. Jahn Regensburg defeated the Hanseatic Counter 2-0 and thus managed the immediate Bundesliga comeback with 2-0. After a strong start, striker Füllkrug provided countable – 1-0. However, the fact that SV Werder stayed in the duel with the Jahn without a goal was already bordered on a little miracle, because the Upper Palatinate had significantly more chances. The Regensburgers should have oriented themselves to Ducksch, who was 2-0 in the 50th minute. As a result, the Werder attachment swiveled to promotion celebrations, because the duel was decided on the square.

HSV for the first time in the relegation in the fourth attempt

With four victories in a row, the Hamburger SV, who had run down to second division rank three times after relegation in recent years, fought back in third place in the final sprint of the league and wanted to assert the relegation place in Rostock. The HSV experienced a dramatic northern duel with Hansa Rostock and won 3-2 on the Baltic Sea.

The game spoil for the former Bundesliga dino was initially Rostock’s Neidhart with his goal in the 13th minute. Glatzel equalized early after the change of sides for the Walter team and thus initiated the catch-up. Captain Schonlau, who born the 2-1 leadership in the 75th minute, took third place with his header in the 75th minute. Kaufmann added 3-1, but the final minutes were shaking again because Hansa shortened to 2: 3. Another faux pas was spared the HSV, in the relegation Hertha BSC is now waiting for the former Hamburg Felix Magath.

Darmstadt does the homework, but that’s not enough

SV Darmstadt was extremely cold against Paderborn and led 3: 0 at the half -time break because Skarke hit early and added Pfeiffer with a double pack. However, the figures for the lilies are so superior to the dominance of the Darmstadt naked. The SCP played joyfully, but did not hit the mark – Hertha coach Felix Magath as observer at the Böllenfall goal had certainly registered this, but the most important information had collected his assistant Mark Fotheringham in Rostock.

Because in the end only because of the seven goals worse goal difference compared to HSV, the SV98 landed only in fourth place – many disappointed faces and tears included. The Lieberknecht team played the best second division season with 60 points, but this was not enough.

Liverpool is in the final class in the final

Hardly anyone had given FC Villarreal against a team after the clear first leg that had not lost twelve games before and had been without a goal for four games. But in the first 45 minutes, the yellow submarine, table seventh in La Liga, showed why the Europa League winner, for example, had bowled the German record champion one round earlier.

Unai Emery had largely foregon his regular personnel in the 1-2 defeat in the relegation-threatened Alaves, which now returned in the semi-final second leg. Compared to the 0: 2 defeat in the first leg, Emery only exchanged his dual leadership and brought Dia and Gerard Neu, Samu Chukwueze initially took a seat on the bench. The failure of six-goal strikers Danjuma, who was missing in the squad due to muscular problems, was difficult.

Jürgen Klopp also competed in Newcastle United without a large number of regular players. Konaté, Alexander-Arnold, Thiago, Fabinho and Salah moved back to the starting eleven for the second leg in the Estadio de la Ceramico.


dia shocks the reds

FC Villarreal had not even shot the goal of keeper Alisson throughout the first leg – he got the ball out of the net less than three minutes after kick -off for the first time. The hosts started courageously, powerful and in 4-4-2 with a high pressing line, Dia rewarded his colors from five meters with his first champions league goal (3rd).

The Reds seemed shocked and found no means to free themselves from printing with an orderly game structure. Thiago narrowly missed the equalization (13th), immediately afterwards saved Robertson against Gerard (15th) on the opposite side.

ex-Freiburg coquelin equalizes first leg

The initial phase was in the sense of the yellow submarine, which also had access and always seemed to be a step faster in the duels. So it created dangerous situations like Lo Celso, which Alisson threw himself in the way (37th). A little later, however, the Brazilian was no longer able to defend himself in the header of the ex-Freiburg Coquelin, who increased to 2-0 shortly before the break and thus equalized the disclaimer (41.). This was also the first goal in the premier class for the 30-year-old.

Klopp had to react and brought Luis Diaz with restart, Diogo Jota stayed in the cabin. This brought new impetus into the offensive game of the English, who, with a deflected slat shot by Alexander-Arnold (55th) and a side puller of the substitute Colombian (57th), signed up.

Luis Diaz brings new swing – Fabinho tunnel Rulli

With each attack, the Reds became more confident, the goal by Fabinho through the Rulli braces was the almost logical consequence (62nd). But that’s not all, because Klopp’s eleven stayed tuned and one of Alexander-Arnold’s many crossings found the head of the striking Luis Diaz, who scored the 2: 2 and finally paved the way to the final (67th).

Because afterwards the yellow submarine was broken, the hosts had to pay tribute to the intense first 45 minutes and could hardly defend themselves. After a counterattack in which Rulli came out of his box too early and misjudged, Mané made 3: 2 (74th), whereby the Reds then left it in the final phase.

Liverpool First final participant

Villarreal was frustrated, the disappointed Capoue saw the traffic light card (86.) after an unnecessary getting on the center line and left the lawn with a large, appreciative applause. A little later it was over and the champions League fairy tale of the yellow submarine ended after another big fight.

The first final participant is therefore clear that it is the LFC that now has the chance to start his third Champions League title after 2005 and 2019. The final will then take place on May 28th at 9 p.m. in the Stade de France in Paris.


FC Barcelona conquers second place and celebrates Fati

The Spanish football top club FC Barcelona has recaptured second place in Laliga.
The Catalans won 2-1 (1-0) on matchday 34 against RCD Mallorca and pushed themselves past FC Sevilla (63) again with 66 points.


Memphis Depay (25th) put Barca in the lead after a dream pass from Jordi Alba, Routinier Sergio Busquets (54th).
Antonio Raillo (79th) only managed the connection goal.
Barcas-Youngster Ansu Fati came on in the 75th minute and celebrated his comeback after surviving muscle injury.

Novak Djokovic: without gasoline towards Paris

A 0: 6 in front of their own audience: The form of defending champion Novak Djokovic raises questions shortly before the French Open.

On the way in the final, Djokovic also had a lot of trouble against Laslo Djere, Miomir Kecmanovic and Karen Chatschatshanow and needed three sets each.

In the final against Rublew, at least number eight in the world, the forces were then missing. Djokovic would have liked to have spared the last sentence: The 34-year-old received a 0: 6 for the twelfth time in his long career. The last time he passed in the French Open final against Rafael Nadal in 2020, before 2019 in Rome-also against Nadal, also in the final.

Djokovic: “It is slowly going uphill”

There was no reason to worry, but it was also not the euphoria. “It is slowly going uphill. That gives me courage,” the winner of 20 Grand Slam tournaments told the 8000 spectators who had previously cheered him on loudly.

Özcan: The soft factors speak for the FC Cologne

The achievements of the past weeks – which, according to the coach Steffen Baumgart, to become a currently “not to be replaced” players, make sure that everyone wants to know when Salih Özcan with the 1st FC Cologne about a possible cooperation beyond the Contracting 2023 maintains. And that’s exactly what Özcan is currently not interested in the bean. He says. On the other hand: What else should he say?

A decision is definitely not like yet and this will not happen promptly. “There will be no decision before the end of the season. I have communicated it so that I still want to play the season and therefore have no head for other things,” Özcan said on Wednesday. And: “The negotiations run over the counselor. Personally, I want to be left in peace and complete the season as much as possible. Then we’ll look forward.”

Remains Özcan in his hometown?

If it was so far, he first wanted to search the conversation with Baumgart and then make his decision. What role of coaches (which in the summer insisted to keep Özcan) makes this statement of the Turkish national player clearly: “Through the coach, this season has come so about this season, he gave me self-confidence, that’s why I will be with him talk.”

It may prioritize the soft factors that speak for Cologne. Özcan is what you call a “real Kölschen Jung”, born in the district of Ehrenfeld, where he lives today, where he will be splelted by the guys who want to become like the son of Turkish immigrants: “For them I am felt one Identification figure. ” Whether he is also for the club, is in the stars.

The qualification for the European competition could give the matter additional Drive Pro Cologne. But here, too, there is no prognosis in terms of quality of Özcan: “With us in our team, this is not a topic of conversation at all. Of course, each player dreams of playing internationally. The guys who were not yet played by FC when the club has played internationally Do not know what to come to 1. ” But currently the focus on Mönchengladbach, then you want to turn the view from game to game, with this goal: “We want to bring the season to a good conclusion.”

Özcan in front of the derby against Gladbach: “We will meet on a bird troop”

The opponent of Saturday is an old acquaintance. Against Borussia he played as a teenager frequently, four times as a professional, not only Salih Özcan went from the square as a loser. “I hope my series belongs to Gladbach and I will also win the fifth game against you. I am very looking forward to the encounter, every player will enjoy.” He sees the Borussia “individually strongly occupied”, a team that should not be underestimated. He prophesiously: “We will meet a bird troop.” Unlike Mainz, you must immediately “bring the necessary intensity on the lawn.” If this is not obeyed, immensely threatens: “If we do not succeed, it will be hard to win a Bundesliga game.”

Baumgart makes Belass Europacup on 1 FC Cologne

Steffen Baumgart went as a striker in the offensive. “We are calling Europe, let’s go!”, Said the coach of the Football Bundesliga club 1. FC Cologne in front of the Brisant Derby at Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday (18:30 / SKY).

So far, the ex-attacker had retained in relation to international ambitions and let the FC fans be dreamed alone: “So I am, sometimes there are new tones. But not that we cry afterwards because it did not work.”

Because the first Bundesliga champion with 43 points after 29 matchdays can no longer, now the Rhine countries in the last five games of the season align the view of the European Cup.

“If nobody opened the barrel: clearly we want to come up this season as possible as possible. Of course I would like to play internationally next season. We would like to fulfill the fans this dream,” said Baumgart and rejected Verbal out of the window.

The 3: 2 against Mainz after a 0: 2 residue had again shown that the Cologne could also tear the back to the wall from the fire with his back to the wall this season. The FC coach therefore does not be afraid of the restarted Borussians who have brought ten points from the last four games: “They want to win, but we want that too! The intensity will be high.”

And Baumgart also spoke about his personal future. “My future is definitely the 1st FC Cologne, because I have another year contract,” joked the native Rostock. There are no concrete talks about a contract extension, but “there is no reason to become restless”.

Matchday: Roter Stern Belgrad - 1. FC Köln

The fact that both fan bearings will be at the Derby in Borussia Park is an additional motivation for Baumgart: “I have a grin on the face when the stadium is full.” Rivalry is alright, but this will be held on the square of the teams, “on the ranks should simply prevail good atmosphere”.
