BVB chief Hans-Joachim Watzke has revealed that if the on-loan Liverpool man shows a desire to play for the Bundesliga champions, they may think about offering him a deal to return
Borussia Dortmund’s chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has said that if on-loan Liverpool midfielder Nuri Sahin wants to come back and play for the Bundesliga champions, then they may consider an approach.
Sahin played for BVB before moving to Real Madrid in 2011, but struggled to cement his place in the first team and is now on loan at the Reds.
The playmaker has found it difficult to adapt to life in both England and Spain and Watzke has said Dortmund would think about bringing Sahin back to the club, if the Turkey international showed his desire to play for them.
“I told him: If he comes to me and says, he doesn't want anything else than playing in Dortmund, we will think about this issue. But it has to be feasible," he told Bild.
The German champions have also sold on other players such as Shinji Kagawa and striker Lucas Barrios in recent times and the chief executive believes as well as Sahin that the duo are not currently as happy as they were when playing for BVB.
He added: “Which player, who has left us is happier now, Kagawa? Sahin? Barrios? no one."
Watzke also says that goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller is one of the finest in world football and thinks he should play more for the national side.
He continued: “The problem is we don’t decide [who plays for Germany] but Joachim Low should know that Dortmund have a goalkeeper of world-class [abillity].”
Finally, the chief executive mused on Mario Gotze, saying that the club have no intention of selling the playmaker.
He said: “Mario says he will not change the club any time soon, his management says the same and we would not let him leave.”
