Axel Witsel is no longer undisputed at Borussia Dortmund. At the latest in the summer, the paths between the central midfielder and the BVB will probably separate. After the Routinier was recently associated with a change to Serie A again and again, the six apparently offers another option.

Axel Witsel has to be increasingly fighting his place in the initial formation at Borussia Dortmund. His own goal in the Cup Octagonal Final against FC St. Pauli (1: 2) should not have increased the starting elevations of the 33-year-old. In any case, the BVB plans his future probably long ago without Witsel.


It was not until Wednesday the Octagonal Finals picture reported that the clearer is definitely leaving black and yellow in his end of the contract in the summer. According to Octagonal Final1 Witsel’s working paper in Dortmund is not extended. Thus, the 120-fold international after four years has to look for a new club at the Westphalia.

It could allegedly draw Witsel in his Belgian homeland, because Standard Liège should be interested in a commitment of the BVB professionals. The Middle Fieldman once celebrated his breakthrough at the Club of Wallonia region.

Witsel in the BVB midfield no longer set

Meanwhile, Witsel in the midfield center has to face a greater competition. Jude Bellingham and Mahmoud Dahoud are set under BVB coach Marco Rose. Accordingly, Witsel has difficult, although the Belgian has already completed 27 mandatory games for the area club in the current season. The services shown were not always satisfactory, so the BVB is probably a separation plans.

In the past few weeks, Witsel had repeatedly been traded at the Italian record champion Juventus.
