Amiri sees Bayer no weaker than the BVB

Prior to Bayer Leverkusen’s guest game at Borussia Dortmund, the stars of Werkself lean far from the window. After Kevin Volland last sent a combat story to the BVB, new access Nadiem Amiri now copied.

“I do not have the impression that we are weaker than the BVB,” Amiri said in the “Eurosport” interview in advance of playing his Leverkusen in Signal Iduna Park (Sa. 15:30 o’clock). The BVB is “talked about” a lot, said the German U21 national player: “But we want to go there, make a good game and take as many as possible three points with us. According to Amiri, Saturday would be a good time to “knock on top” in the league, said the 22-year-old who wants to win titles with Bayer. However, the former Hoffenheimer restricted “everything perfect” to this. “A secret of Leverkusen’s success is the offensive style of former BVB coach Peter Bosz.” If everyone does well, it’s superb. If one does not comply with the requirements, it becomes dangerous,”Amiri sees in the Dutch high-risk football but also shadows.

Amiri talks about the national team

Amiri has a clear plan:”I am only focused on Germany. It’s my dream to run for the National Team. I always do my best to be invited by Mr. Lion one day. But if I ever find out there’s really no chance, I’ll play for Afghanistan. This is my parents’country, the roots of my family are there.”

Amiri, born in Ludwigshafen, has played 51 games for the junior national teams of the German Football Federation. In the summer he switched from 1899 Hoffenheim to Leverkusen.
