Dortmund apparently want to strengthen their defense for the coming season. How Sky reported, BVB is interested in Maxence Lacroix from VfL Wolfsburg. Accordingly, Borussia have the central defender, who is still tied to VfL until 2024, “on the slip”.
The 20-year-old Frenchman is playing an outstanding debut season in what is currently third-placed in the Bundesliga and, with his performance, has played a major role in the stable defense of the Wolves (only 19 goals conceded, best in the league). Before the current season, the two-time U20 international came from FC Souchaux for five million euros.
BVB, on the other hand, lacks alternatives in central defense: In addition to the usually seeded Mats Hummels and Manuel Akanji, only Dan-Axel Zagadou is available as a trained defender. However, this is always struggling with injuries. That’s why Emre Can had to help out several times.
BVB apparently on Wolfsburg defenders
Former BVB striker Alexander Frei spoke about the current situation at BVB and the biggest challenge in the club. “The problem with BVB is that all coaches are measured against Jürgen Klopp. And that’s not fair,” he said in an interview with Sports picture.
At the same time he underlined the qualities of Klopp: “When I came to BVB in 2006, I immediately felt that this club was a sleeping giant. Kloppo had exactly the right feeling for how to wake this giant.”
Despite a mixed season, Frei firmly believes that BVB will also play in the Champions League in the coming season: “In the end, BVB will end up in third or fourth place. Because the quality of the squad is simply too great to not make it into to create the premier class. “
Frei was particularly fond of one of Dortmund’s top performers – Erling Haaland. This is an “exception. He is unbelievably good and has planned his career in an exemplary manner. His move from Molde to Salzburg and then to BVB were exactly the right thing. Haaland has climbed the career ladder step by step without skipping a rung and slipping “.
Frei, currently trainer at the Swiss club FC Will, looks at a lot from Klopp and his former national team trainer Ottmar Hitzfeld: “I have observed closely: What is Ottmar like, what is Jürgen like as a motivator in times of crisis. For me, the magic formula is the mixture of these two types of coaches. “
