“We are a soccer club, not a bank.”
Leverkusen director Simon Rolfes is adamant. Leverkusen have been the surprise package of the German Bundesliga this season. 캡틴토토 주소 Leverkusen has been transformed since the arrival of Xabi Alonso last season, and they’ve been out in front since the start of the season. Bayern Munich are unbeaten, but they’re not far behind. Their colorful tactics and bold attacking play are shining through.
Leverkusen’s centerpiece is Florian Wirz. The 20-year-old has already scored six goals this season. Alonso has high praise for Wirz, even comparing him to Lionel Messi. “The reason Messi is so good is because he knows the timing. That’s why you have to play smart. That’s what Birz does.”
With big European clubs lining up for Birz, Liverpool have been the most active. The Reds have identified Birz as a possible replacement for Mohamed Salah, who is being courted by Saudi Arabia. According to British media, the Reds are expected to offer €92 million.
“No team has made an offer for us, and we don’t need to,” Rolfes said ahead of the Europa League tie. We are a club, not a bank,” Rolfes said ahead of the Europa League match. He made it clear that he has no plans to sell Birz for the time being. Birz’s father has also said that he will not leave the team until after Euro 2024. Leverkusen are reportedly looking for more than €100 million for Birz.
