For nearly five years, Kevin Kampl now attracts the threads in the midfield of RB Leipzig. At the weekend, the 31-year-old now comes to the reunion with his ex-club Borussia Dortmund. In front of a BVB player, the Slovene has particularly great respect.
Three games, three victories, six goals – RB Leipzig can be described in good conscience as a favorite opponent of Erling Haaland. So far, the Norwegian has met twice in every duel with the Saxons. No wonder that sometimes a professional of the Europa League quarterfinalist is trembling before the Dortmund Ass.
“Unfortunately, he has often greeted us in the past games,” said Leipzig’s Kevin Kampl now in the interview with the “Kevin Kampl Picture” about Haaland.
Generally, the former Borusse warned against the quality of the Westphalia. “Although the BVB might might have some problems: against us are always there from the beginning and have called top benefits,” said the Routinian.
The only exception was the first leg, which RB had won 2: 1. “But you know that yourself and certainly want to make a good thing,” says Kampl, who also believes that BVB coach Marco Rose will be “hot” his team.
To date, Kampl thinks about the Borussia, for which he had played for about half a year in 2015, before he moved towards Leverkusen, very positive. Already in early years he had something for the black and yellow.
“I was never a big Schalke fan – as a child I actually slept in Dortmund bed linen,” the game-strong ball distributor betrayed.
Backing for Bayern Gorge Child Sabitzer
Until the last summer Kampl Kicken in Leipzig together with Marcel Sabitzer. At the end of August, the Austrian finally followed coach Julian Nagelsmann to Bayern. Happy he did not become the record champion so far.
“Of course it is difficult for him. He simply needs success experiences, maybe two strong games in succession,” Kampl said about his former teammate, whom he was called “really good friend”.
Sabitzer is a “fantastic footballer” and have been “often proven”. Therefore, the increasingly louder criticism of his achievements in Munich “not justified”.
