Ex PSL stars to exit Bundesliga?
SASoccer365's German Bundesliga correspondent, Thomas Zocher, gives us the latest on former Premier Soccer League (PSL) stars who are now plying their trade in the German Bundesliga.
Following a disappointing start to Bundesliga in the last six months time and the change of manager at the club from Bert van Marwijk to Järgen Röber, Steven 'Schillaci' Pienaar's Borussia Dortmund has left no doubt over their intention to think about departures of several players from their Bundesliga squad.
It is understood Dortmund's general manager Michael Zorc has started to discuss a contract termination with Ghanian striker Matthew Amoah, twelve months after the Ruhr-club captured the Ghanian international from Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnheim on a long-term deal. With Amoah probably on the leaving side from Dortmund this winter, there are rumours that he could be joined in leaving by Pienaar himself, should any club be willing to offer Dortmund a fair price for the former Ajax Amsterdam player and South African international.
This has, thus far, not taken place, but Pienaar could be set to face the goodbye from Dortmund at least at the end of the season.
Meanwhile Arminia Bielefeld has hinted they are willing to offer Sibusiso Zuma a new deal in time to keep the Bafana Bafana striker at Schüco-Arena and block any offer that may come in for the player that is currently still on the outrunning end of his initial two-year Bielefeld deal he signed in June 2005.
However, Zuma's advisor Rob Moore has indicated to Nuremberg-based kicker-Sportmagazin yesterday that Zuma doesn't plan to come to terms with Bielefeld soon as he dares to know if successful Bielefeld manager Thomas von Heesen will stay in charge of the club from the German region of East Westphalia for more than just the remainder of the season.
Auf Wiederhiesen (Till the next time!)
