Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano in the summer transfer window and based on his performance against Union Berlin earlier this week, he would be a superb addition to Jurgen Klopp’s side. The French defender has been a key player with Julian Nagelsmann’s side in recent seasons and helped them to the Champions League semi-finals last season.
Following the game last week, Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah told broadcaster DAZN that a Union player had used a derogatory term referring to Amiri’s Afghan background. Tah also said he had not heard the alleged racial slur himself. Amiri, who plays for the German national team, told a federation investigation that he could not rule out that different words might have been used, the federation said.
Teenager Florian Wirtz scored for Bayer Leverkusen in a 2-1 win which dealt Borussia Dortmund its latest Bundesliga setback on Tuesday. Dortmund, which was held 1-1 at home by lowly Mainz on Saturday, slumped to its second defeat in six games under new coach Edin Terzic. Dortmund could fall 10 points behind Bayern Munich at the top on Wednesday when Bayern visits struggling Augsburg.
