BVB talent Reyna with title hope: “Can beat any opponent”
Giovanni Reyna is sure that Borussia Dortmund can take advantage of the alleged weak phase of FC Bayern.
“We know that Bayern are currently perhaps the best team in the world, but they are also struggling right now,” said the 18-year-old in an interview with picture and added a warning: “But above all we have to concentrate on ourselves and on the now and shouldn’t look too far ahead.”
In particular, the coming weeks will be decisive for the BVB season, said the American: “Saturday is Mainz, we have to win that. The n we go to Leverkusen and Gladbach. Of course we want to get the maximum out of these games – and then see we go on, “he added:” It’s going to be a question of mentality. We want to stay in the title race, so we have to win these games. ”
The three points against Leipzig also gave a further boost: “It feels like we’ve just gained new energy, new self-confidence, and there are new ideas that the team has started to internalize,” said Reyna.
When he and his teammates call up their performance on the pitch, “then we can keep up with any opponent and also beat them,” says the 18-year-old. Above all, the return of striker Erling Haaland plays a role, who was injured for a few weeks and scored twice on his starting eleven comeback in Leipzig. “We missed him a lot during the time he was injured – a look at his statistics and numbers is enough,” said Reyna.
BVB: Tigges apparently stays with the professionals
The BVB youngsters therefore lack the top striker and captain.
“Tiggi is currently with the professionals and is doing very well there – his short appearances show that. It’s nice that one of our guys is up there. Nevertheless, he is an absolute key player for us and our captain. That’s why we are of course happy even if he strengthens us, “said U23 coach Enrico Maaßen.
Tigges has collected three professional missions so far and could come up with more minutes against Mainz. “It definitely went very quickly. Before the game against Braunschweig, I didn’t really expect the new year to start like this. But of course it’s all the nicer for me, including that we’ve been able to win all games since I’ve been there . I would like to keep the series like this, “said the 23-year-old.
Terzic “wanted to have a classic nine after Erling Haarland and Youssoufa Moukoko had dropped out in Braunschweig and that I should do the same as in the U23,” said Tigges.
