Fiete Arp made his mark yesterday against Dynamo Dresden with an excellent free kick during Bayern Munich II’s 3-0 victory:
It was a good all-around effort from Arp as he was involved heavily in the squad’s offense. Like we already know, Arp is going to be judged on how he handles the competition of 3.Liga and on his production if he ever wants to see first-team minutes in Munich.
Originally it looked as if Arp had gotten on to the end of a pass from Leon Dajaku for the squad’s second goal, but replays eventually showed that Dajaku (another Bayern Munich II player to keep an eye on) should be credited with the tally.
“Bayern are a great club and there was interest from them, but I followed what my heart told me to and for that I signed for Barca. I think it was the right decision,” Dest said at his introductory press conference. “They are a club with so much history and I’ve always wanted to play here.”
Dest, whose mother is Dutch, also indicated that the transition to Barca would be easier given that Ronald Koeman is now at the helm at Camp Nou. So yeah, the aftershocks of Bayern Munich’s 8-2 victory over Barca are still being felt.
Anyway, sometimes I guess you really do just have to listen to your heart — Roxette style:
Listen to your heart when Barca’s calling for you
Listen to your heart, Ronald Koeman speaks Dutch, too
I don’t know where you’re going, but I know where you’re not
But listen to your heart...before you tell Bayern goodbye
By the way, I HATE typing beIN Sports because I always feel like I am doing it wrong.
What a whirlwind Max Philipp has been on in his young career. After moving to Borussia Dortmund from SC Freiburg in 2017, the now 26-year-old found it difficult to break in with BVB.
With field time not guaranteed to Philipp at Borussia Dortmund, he moved on to Dynamo Moscow. That tenure would only last a year as Philipp is back for a chance at redemption in the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg.
It sounds absurd, but there is at least one rumor out there linking Inter Milan’s Christian Eriksen with...Borussia Dortmund?
According to latest TMW rumors, Danish international midfielder Christian Eriksen (28), who might end up parting ways with Inter Milan, despite having joined in only last January, has been targeted by Borussia Dortmund. Recently linked to Leicester City as well, former Tottenham and Ajax prominent playmaker is currently on a deal with Neroazzurri until June 2024.
Eriksen, of course, was linked to Bayern Munich as recently as late 2019.
