Hans-Joachim Watzke praises Hummels and Reus – Zorc ennobles Sancho
BVB managing director Hans-Jochim Watzke explicitly praised a duo after Dortmund’s 3-1 victory over RB Leipzig. “Mats and Marco did an outstanding job together and carried away the whole team,” said Watzke in the picture about Mats Hummels ‘and Marco Reus’ performance in the 3-1 win at RB Leipzig.
Sports director Michael Zorc also highlighted the performance of the recently much-criticized Reus and also ennobled the increasingly better Jadon Sancho. “Jadon and Marco recently had an upward trend, which has continued,” Zorc told the WAZ. “They showed their full commitment in the first half when things didn’t go offensive, they put themselves at the service of the team. That’s the way, there is no other way.”
Reus provided both Sancho and Erling Haaland with an assist, and Sancho, in addition to his goal to make it 1-0, also made an assist on Haaland. Meanwhile, Hummels shone as a strong defensive chief. With the victory and the simultaneous mistake of FC Bayern Munich at Borussia Mönchengladbach, Dortmund shortened the gap to the front runner to five points.

BVB: Roman Bürki regrets injury to Axel Witsel
Keeper Roman Bürki regretted the loss of midfielder Axel Witsel, who had to be out for several months due to a ruptured Achilles tendon. “It’s a bitter loss. With his personality, Axel was an important player,” said Bürki. He and the whole team hope “that he can be back on the field sooner than planned”.
Witsel contracted the injury without opposing influence in the victory in Leipzig. He was operated successfully on Monday.
