Dortmund rule out signing Jadon Sancho permanently (Details)




Borussia Dortmund is facing a tough challenge in securing Manchester United‘s Jadon Sancho on a permanent deal after his loan spell.

The 23-year-old England international returned to Dortmund last month after a fallout with United manager Erik ten Hag. Sancho has impressed with two assists in three appearances, all resulting in wins for Dortmund. However, he missed Friday night’s goalless draw at Heidenheim due to a muscle issue.

Despite his strong performance, Dortmund’s sporting director Sebastian Kehl has indicated that making Sancho’s loan permanent is unlikely, drawing parallels with the situation of Chelsea loanee Ian Maatsen.

“Unfortunately for both players, neither option was realistic. If you know what we got for Jadon Sancho two-and-a-half years ago, then you know also that it might not be very, very difficult,’ he told Sky Sports Germany.

“We naturally advocated for an option on him – and also with Ian – but the negotiating position was not such that we could implement it and so we will accept it for now.”

Real Madrid defeat wasteful Dortmund to claim 15th Champions League crown [VIDEO]



Real Madrid Punish Wasteful Dortmund To Claim 15th Champions League Crown

Real Madrid’s Champions League journey is akin to a high-wire act, where they often appear on the brink of disaster but rarely falter.

Under the guidance of Carlo Ancelotti, who claimed his historic fifth Champions League title, Real Madrid secured their 15th win in the tournament by overcoming Borussia Dortmund with late goals from Dani Carvajal and Vinicius Jr. at Wembley.

As Ancelotti and his players celebrated, hoisting the giant trophy amid pyrotechnics and fireworks, the scene felt familiar.

It echoed the many dramatic victories of Real Madrid in recent years, where they have often left their opponents heartbroken, including the likes of Atletico Madrid and Liverpool.

Dortmund’s disappointment was palpable as they walked past their passionate fans, who had filled Wembley with color and noise.

Real Madrid struggled in the first half, rattled by Dortmund’s pace and intensity under Edin Terzic. They were fortunate to reach half-time on level terms, living on their nerves and luck.

Dortmund’s Karim Adeyemi might question his decision-making when he attempted to dribble around Real’s goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois instead of shooting.

He also missed another opportunity that Courtois saved. Niclas Fullkrug was equally unlucky, seeing his shot rebound off the inside of the post and another powerful header saved by Courtois.

Throughout the match, there was a growing sense of inevitability that Real Madrid would find a way to survive and ultimately prevail, just as they did against Manchester City in the quarter-finals and Bayern Munich in the semi-finals.

OFFICIAL: Bayern have appointed Kompany as their new head coach until June 2027



OFFICIAL: Bayern have appointed Kompany as their new head coach until June 2027

Bayern Munich have appointed Vincent Kompany as their new head coach.

Kompany, who was anticipated to be a central part of Burnley’s future despite their relegation from the Premier League this season, has now taken on the role at Bayern.

Burnley’s drop to the Championship was confirmed in the penultimate week of the season.

As reported by Mail Sport last Wednesday, Bayern held discussions with Burnley chairman Alan Pace regarding a compensation fee, aiming to finalize the deal quickly. The German club has now successfully secured Kompany, the former Manchester City captain, as their new head coach.

Bayern’s search for Thomas Tuchel’s successor saw several high-profile candidates, including Xabi Alonso, former head coach Julian Nagelsmann, and ex-Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick, decline the role.

Despite efforts to persuade Tuchel to stay after his departure was announced three months ago, those talks did not lead to a reversal of his decision.

Kompany, who spent two seasons at Hamburg before joining Manchester City in 2008, speaks fluent German and has impressed the Bayern hierarchy with his football philosophy.

However, this appointment represents a gamble for both parties following their disappointing recent campaigns.

Bayern failed to win the Bundesliga for the first time since 2012, while Kompany’s reputation, which had seen him linked with Tottenham and Chelsea, took a hit with Burnley’s 19th-place finish.

This move is a significant blow to Burnley chairman Alan Pace, who had hoped Kompany would lead a promotion charge from the Championship.

The Burnley board had placed considerable trust in the Belgian, especially in recruitment, and had planned to find a new coach to work under him next season.

Ashley Cole, currently at Birmingham City, was one name identified for that role due to his impressive work with England’s Under 21s, who won the European Championship last summer.

Ademola Lookman nets HAT-TRICK as Atalanta stun Leverkusen to win Europa League (HIGHLIGHTS)



Ademola Lookman nets HAT-TRICK as Atalanta stun Leverkusen to win Europa League

Ademola Lookman’s stunning hat-trick propelled Atalanta to their first silverware since 1963, ending Bayer Leverkusen’s unbeaten season in the Europa League final.

Lookman, the London-born Nigerian striker who began his career at Charlton, delivered two excellent first-half finishes and added a brilliant third goal 15 minutes from time, leading Atalanta to a commanding 3-0 victory in Dublin.

This triumph marked only the second trophy in Atalanta’s 116-year history, coming over six decades after their Coppa Italia win.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s side had lost to Juventus in the Coppa Italia final just seven days earlier, but they bounced back to derail Leverkusen’s momentum.

Lookman, formerly of Everton, Fulham, and Leicester, provided the decisive edge in a polished team performance.

Leverkusen, under Xabi Alonso, had been on the verge of an invincible season after securing their first Bundesliga title and remaining unbeaten for 51 games.

However, Leverkusen was unprepared for Atalanta’s high press, which forced early mistakes and set the tone for the match.

Granit Xhaka lost possession, leading to Matteo Ruggeri setting up a headed chance for Gianluca Scamacca.

Despite this clear warning, Leverkusen failed to respond, and Atalanta took the lead after 12 minutes.
