Kahn teases: “For some unknown reason”
Among other things, he talked about the departures and said specifically: “While Niklas now plays inexplicably for Borussia Dortmund, Corentin Tolisso has returned to his hometown club, Olympique Lyon.”Kahn explained, alluding to Sule’s decision, which was a mystery to him.
Despite the strike, he made it clear that he appreciates the central defender and thanked the departures: “Both have made a great contribution, we wish them all the best for their new clubs.”
The center-back had been hesitant for a long time with an extension at FC Bayern, after the club initially took the time to extend their contract, which expired in 2022. Club officials had repeatedly expressed doubts about Sule’s fitness and motivation.

BVB also has to take sidewipe: “Red numbers”
Incidentally, not only Süle, but also BVB had to give it another try. Before Kahn, president Herbert Hainer gave himself a tip to Dortmund.
He made fun of the finances: “A look at our national rivals confirms us. Borussia Dortmund are in the red for the third consecutive timewith a deficit of 35 million euros last season. “Bayern were different: despite the crisis, they were in the black.
These are difficult times for Florentino Pérez. The longtime Real Madrid president with deep pockets has been used to regularly lure superstars to Madrid. But in recent years, the absolute mega stars have stopped coming.
