On the season finale 2020/21 Roman Bürki was the last time in the goal of Borussia Dortmund. On May 22, the Swiss with a good performance (Borussia note 2.5) had its share of 3: 1 home win against Bayer 04 Leverkusen. Now the 31-year-old experiences the big stage again – at least from the replacement bench, as the Ruhr write messages.
Creeping degradation under Terzic
The goalkeeping change at BVB already took a little before – Bürki made himself on the 18th match day at the 2: 4 in Gladbach a black day (Borussia note 5) and injured itself on top of the shoulder. When he was fit again, the then Coach Edin Terzic Marwin Hitz gave the trust.
Bürki sat in the rest of the season, eight times in a row on the bench, before Hitz also returned in a collision with his colleague Manuel Akanji and Bürki for the remaining three Bundesliga games and the cup final against RB (4: 1) again returned.
For the new season, Kobel from Stuttgart and the BVB sorted the goalkeeper hierarchy New: Kobel established himself as a regularkeeper, Hitz became its representative and from the U-23 squad was Luca unexpaired or Stefan Drljaca, if necessary.
No place under Rose – Future in St. Louis
Bürki remained in this season under coach Marco Rose only exercising – from the Stammkeeper to the sorted out with the back number 38, this role could only be very difficult to accept Bürki. He praised Kohel, knowing the “football business of his tough-hard side”. In winter, a transfer to the FC Lorient (Ligue 1) was in the room, which burst. Instead, he will work in the US from summer 2023 – as a new keeper of the new MLS club St. Louis City Sc.
