Schlager about Laimer: “Won’t influence him”

Newcomer Xaver Schlager does not want to influence his Austrian team-mate Konrad Laimer at Bundes League soccer club RB Leipzig in his future planning.

“We all know he’s a great player. Of course it’s easier for me when he’s here,” said the 24-year-old on Wednesday.

Laimer, who, according to media reports, is associated with the record champions Bayern Munich, has to “take the best possible path for him, so I’m certainly not going to interrupt him”.

Schlager stimulated the Champions League
In his own decision to switch from VfL Wolfsburg to DFB Cup winners Leipzig, the Champions League qualification “played a big role,” explained Schlager.

Whether RB is ready for the German championship title is “difficult to say” for him after such a short time: “But of course, if you have a title, you want the next one.” Maybe he could “also get a title in Germany to win.”

BVB striker before moving to Cologne

Bundesliga club 1. FC Köln is apparently about to sign center forward Steffen Tigges.

As reported by the Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger, the transfer of the 23-year-old from Borussia Dortmund has been decided, and the signature should take place on Tuesday. An official confirmation of the two European Cup participants is still pending.

Tigges, who is currently recovering from an ankle injury, passed the medical check on Monday. The transfer fee is said to be between 1 and 1.5 million euros, but it can still increase through performance-related bonus payments.

The FC is said to have promised the runners-up a partial proceeds in the event of a resale.

The 23-year-old switched from VfL Osnabrück to BVB in 2019. He made nine Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund last season, in which he scored three goals – including a 2-0 win over Cologne in the first half of the season.

Cologne farewell? Horn makes you sit up and take notice

Cologne farewell? Horn makes you sit up and take notice

Goalkeeper Timo Horn from Bundesliga club 1. FC Köln leaves his future at his regular club open.

“I never ruled out playing for another club,” said the 28-year-old on Sky, but also emphasized: “I’m not one to kiss the coat of arms today and play somewhere else tomorrow, that’s clear. But I’m not ruling that out. I always have the aspiration to play, we’ll see what comes of it.” (DATA: Bundesliga results and schedule)

In the 1-0 win against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, Horn returned to the FC goal because the new number one, Marvin Schwäbe, had contracted Corona.

However, Horn also made it clear that the situation as a substitute keeper was not easy for him: “I went through all the youth teams in Cologne and was number one for ten years. As long as I can remember, I was between the posts.”

Nevertheless, he tries to “take the situation positively. It’s no use burying your head in the sand. I’ll keep working hard and we’ll see what happens then. Today’s game was also very important for me,” he said experienced goalkeeper. His contract in Cologne runs until the summer of 2023.
