Unintentionally or not, Lewandowski has probably triggered some Dortmund fans (Bulinews.com)

Everyone knows that Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski spent part of his career with Borussia Dortmund, but that has not stopped the star from taking a few potshots at his old club. Speaking to FC Bayern TV (as captured by Bulinews.com), Lewandowski talked over what he sees as the difference between the clubs:

I remember my first days at Bayern München. When I put on my jersey for the first time, it was a special feeling. For the first time, I had the feeling of wearing a jersey from a big club.

That won’t go over well.

Juve wants Havertz (Daily Mail)

It looks like we can add Juventus to the list of potential suitors for Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz. Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool have already allegedly expressed interest in the Die Mannschaft attacker:

Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz. The 20-year-old, who has already been capped by Germany four times, was the subject of inquiries during the summer transfer window. And now Serie A giants Juve are keen on Havertz with talks to begin when the two clubs meet in the Champions League group stages this season, according to Calciomercato.

Procuring the exciting 20-year-old is certainly not going to be easy.

Allianz Arena going 5G (FCBayern.com)

Bayern Munich and Deutsche Telekom have entered a special partnership to make the new 5G mobile communication standard available in and around the Allianz Arena during spring 2020.

Deutsche Telekom director in charge of private client relations Michael Hagspihl is excited to bring the latest and greatest in mobile technology to Bayern Munich:

Together with FC Bayern, we’ll enable our fans to experience the 5G technology. It can offer visitors to the Allianz Arena a new dimension of spectator experience via VR or AR.

Bayern München CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, meanwhile, is happy to enhance the fax experience yet again:

The Allianz Arena stands for quality, progress and innovation, so we’re very glad we can offer our fans this special technology so early with the help of our longstanding partners Deutsche Telekom. After the comprehensive W-LAN extension in 2015, the 5G technology is the next logical step to make the experience at the stadium even more attractive around the game.

Per the release:

5G technology can process large amounts of data significantly quicker, so video streams can be watched faster and in higher resolutions. In addition, the technology makes it possible for the visitors to experience augmented or virtual reality with 5G-capable devices via apps. Among other things, fans might walk in as the 12th man of the team or participate in goal celebrations. Virtual competitions between visitors are conceivable too. The sport experience and visits to the Allianz Arena will be even more intense thanks to 5G.
