Bosz has ´no idea´ whether Dembele will stay at Dortmund

17 August 2017 17:12

Peter Bosz admits he has “no idea” if Ousmane Dembele will still be a Borussia Dortmund player by the end of the transfer window.

The 20-year-old was subject to a bid from Barcelona as they look to fill the hole left by Neymar’s departure, with Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho also believed to be a target.

Dortmund suspended Dembele for missing training without permission last week and the winger is not under consideration for Saturday’s trip to Wolfsburg, with his actions drawing criticism from team-mate Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Bosz, who took over as coach in June, is willing to welcome the Frenchman back into the first-team set-up but remains unsure of the player’s future at Signal Iduna Park.

“I’ll try to focus on the players that are here. Ousmane is not,” Bosz said.

“I have no idea how exactly this will turn out in the end.

“Ousmane is a good lad and a good player. We’ll have to talk about how to reintegrate him if [he stays].”

Dembele’s enforced absence has been compounded by news of a thigh injury ruling Andre Schurrle out for around four weeks.

Dortmund will also be without Marco Reus for several more months as the injury-plagued German recovers from a knee problem, although Mario Gotze is “ready to start” against Wolfsburg.

Turkey international Emre Mor is a potential option on the wing after his mooted move to Inter fell through.

“That the transfer didn’t come off has nothing to do with BVB,” Bosz said.

“It’s other people who are involved in the process.”

Dortmund finished third in the Bundesliga last season, 18 points behind champions Bayern Munich.

Montreal Impact 3 Chicago Fire 0: Piatti double sinks slumping visitors

17 August 2017 04:15

Montreal Impact extended their winning streak in MLS courtesy of a 3-0 victory as Chicago Fire crashed to back-to-back defeats.

Ignacio Piatti scored twice and Matteo Mancosu was also on target in the first half as the Impact won their third consecutive game on Wednesday.

The Fire had the chance to move back within three points of Eastern Conference leaders Toronto FC but they were no match for an impressive Impact outfit in Montreal.

Montreal made a dream start at Stade Saputo thanks to Piatti, who broke the deadlock in the sixth minute.

Benefitting from a kind bounce, Piatti ran through on goal and scooped the ball into the net.

Mancosu doubled the lead from the penalty spot eight minutes before half-time after he was fouled inside the area.

Piatti put the result beyond doubt a minute later with a stunning goal as he curled the ball beyond Fire goalkeeper Matt Lampson.

The Impact are seventh in the east, two points adrift of Atlanta United, while the Fire are third and six points behind Toronto.
