Fight for the BVB Gate: Burki relies on himself

The “T-Question” has not yet been officially answered by football federator Borussia Dortmund even a few days before the start of the season. Roman Jurki is convinced, however, that he will guard the BVB gate on Sunday against RB Leipzig (18:00 clock).

“I assume that I am playing,” said the Swiss following Thursday’s training of the Black Yellow. The fact t hat Coach Lucien Favre has not yet given him the status of number one in public does not bother the 27-year-old. The coach had to “not always explain himself and discuss everything publicly,” said the final man.

In the end, according to Burki, it was up to Favres to accept the decision: “I will prepare for the game as always.”

Deficits at Marwin Heatz? The decision would b e anything but surprising if Burki, who did not always act happy in the last season, were to receive the award. It has been speculated for several weeks that the Keeper has the nose in front of new access Marwin Heat.

Heat, according to the “Sport Image”, has still to catch up especially in the areas of game opening, fit accuracy and mobility. This is also why, in the first mandatory game of the season, Jury was probably given preference over his compatriot. In the league against RB Leipzig it should look similar.
