Midfielder Scores One Of The Greatest Own Goals Of All Time

Unfortunately for Dynamo Dresden’s Aias Aosman, this’ll probably be the best part of his 2016/17 Skills & Goals HD YouTube video. This flying, kneed volley from 18 yards out left his own goalkeeper no chance as it arrowed inside the far post.

What’s even worse for Aosman is that this goal proved to be the difference — Furth defeated Dresden 1-0 on the day. What’s utterly depressing is that this totally destroyed any chance Dresden had of getting promoted to the Bundesliga.

German Coach Screaming Instructions At Player He Just Subbed Off Is Classic

Wanna hear a joke?

It’s the 75th minute in a Bundesliga match between Borussia Monchengladbach and FC Cologne with the score level at 2-2. Gladbach manager Dieter Hecking withdraws Jonas Hofmann and puts on Josip Drmic in the hopes of finding a match-winner.

Five minutes later, Lars Stindl puts Gladbach ahead and the bench goes ballistic. Hecking immediately switches his focus to defending their one-goal lead for the final 10 minutes. He sees Hofmann, the midfielder he just substituted, and begins barking instructions on staying compact. 

Ancelotti Shows He’s The Best Man Manager In Football By Soothing Franck Ribery With A Kiss

Jose Mourinho has spoken at length recently about how difficult it is to be a manager of this next generation of players. They’re rich before their careers even take off, they have everything in their personal lives meticulously managed by others and they’re prey to the insidious advice of those that want a piece of the pie.

Ribery Move To MLS Seems Likely

Franck Ribery is reportedly considering bringing his talents to the United States (or Canada) once his contract with Bayern Munich is up. This does not come as much of a surprise, as German-icon Bastian Schweinsteiger recently made the move to join MLS with the Chicago Fire.

However, according to Ribery, MLS is not the only destination that he would enjoy playing for. Some of the other places we could see him play are China, Dubai or even Qatar.

Bayern Munich Are A Steamroller, And The Bundesliga Is Asphalt

There are any number of farm and construction machines Bayern Munich could be accurately compared to: a threshing machine, for example. I think the best comparison, though, is the steamroller, because there's nothing you can do to a steamroller that will stop it from crushing you. Nothing.

Borussia Dortmund played the part of asphalt Saturday as Bayern Rolled over them, 4-1.

Saturday's Der Klassiker Is Hopelessly Meaningless

Don't expect a competitive affair in tomorrow morning's Der Klassiker with both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund looking ahead to their upcoming Champions League quarterfinals. Expect both teams to rest quite a few of their star players as they try to conserve energy and fitness for these huge games.

Borussia Dortmund will have one eye on AS Monaco, Ligue 1's only remaining club. Monaco did more than prove themselves in the round of 16 after defeating Pep Guardiola's Manchester City. That match comes on Tuesday, only three days after Der Klassiker.
