Thomas Helmer a German former football player, who won the European Championship, spent most of his career with the Borussia Dortmund club and the Bayern Munchin club.
After leaving Bayern Munich in 1999, Helmer decided to move to the Premier League.
Liverpool offered him a contract but instead, he chose a free transfer to Sunderland. However, Sunderland manager Peter Reid rarely used him, playing only two league matches between Leeds United and Arsenal and returning to Germany on a loan with Hertha Berlin.
Despite playing for Helsa in the UEFA Champions League, when he returned to Sunderland Reed, he decided that “his leg was gone,” the club bought his contract and the player retired immediately.
Bayern Munich, founded in 1900 by 11 football players based in Munich, is the most successful club in German football history, having won a record 32 national titles and 20 national cups is best known for its professional team, which plays in the Bundesliga, the top tier of the German Football League System.
The club had the greatest success in the mid-1970s and, under the leadership of Franz Beckenbauer, won the European Cup three times in a row (1974-1976).
Bayern has also won the UEFA Cup, the European Cup Winners’ Cup, the UEFA Super Cup twice, the FIFA Club World Cup twice, and the Intercontinental Cup twice, making it one of the most successful European clubs internationally. Yes, it is the only German club that has won both international titles.
In the Bundesliga, Nico Schlotterbeck is one of the brightest young football stars who is taken by Borussia Dortmund from the Freiburg.
Nico Schlotterbeck, the best performing defender in the Bundesliga transferred a fee of 20 million euros plus bonuses into his account, for joining BVB on a five-year contract in the summer.
Bayern needs new and excellent players for its central defense. A few months ago there were a lot of names and it seemed like things could work out for Bavaria, but now things are starting to get limited.
All the best players are scooped away, it seems like after 10 years of Bayern dominance, it might be the time for a change in the grounds of Germany.
Thomas Muller, the former captain who played at the club from 1992 to 1997 is as important to Bayern as the Oktoberfest celebration is to the city of Munich. And he believes that Bayern Munich should’ve signed Nico Schlotterbeck from Freiburg.
“In their place, I would definitely have signed Nico Schlotterbeck from Freiburg. He has so much potential, and is left-footed – I think he’s great. Dortmund managed to get Schlotterbeck in addition to Süle and did a lot of things right,” said Thomas Helmer.
When Helmer was asked about the title predictions for the 2022/23 season, he stated that he expects strong challenges to come from both Dortmund and RB Leipzig.
Whereas Marco Rose heaped said that he is looking forward to the arrival of the German international and praised the new Borussia Dortmund signing Nico Schlotterbeck.
Marco Rose added about Schlotterbeck: He has an excellent left foot, looks closely at the space, and is very strong with the ball on his foot. In addition, he is very calm, has a very good positional game, and is a strong tackler. Everything we needed and was looking for.
