This week in the news, Daniel Farke’s job uncertain, Joan Cancelo to play his ‘last game’ for Bayern at home against Leipzig? And Karim Bellarabi exits Leverkusen.
Daniel Farke’s job uncertain in Gladbach
I posted this week about Daniel Farke’s uncertain future in Gladbach. Despite rumors of his impending sack, it has not happened. Farke, in a press conference, said, “my focus is solely on my team. And hoping we end the season as successful as possible.”
The sports director of Gladbach, Roland Virkus, who was initially silent after the debacle against Dortmund, is of the opinion that a thorough analysis will be made after the remaining two matches.
Two matches will pass before Gladbach fans can have the rumors confirmed or denied by the club. In the meantime, Farke has learned to distance himself from rumors and speculation.
The topic about his future coming up again won’t surprise me.
Joao Cancelo to play his ‘last game’ for Bayern at home against Leipzig?
Cancelo is a utility player who can play a variety of positions. It appears Bayern is not in a hurry to decide Cancelo’s fate. According to Bayerische Rundfunk, Bayern will not activate the purchase option of 70 million Euro, rather they would want him cheaper.
Tuchel reiterates nothing has been decided.
Karim Bellarabi exits Leverkusen
Karim Bellarabi has finally reached the end of the road with Leverkusen. He has been with Leverkusen since 2011. He did not play many games this season because of injury.
I will miss Bellarabi for his focus on the pitch.
