Bayern Maintain Pressure On Dortmund

The German Bundesliga this Saturday saw the table open up amongst the top four after Borussia Mochengladbach thrashed Schalke 3-0 at Borussia-Park Saturday to keep them in the running for the title while giving a huge dent to  Schalke’s title hopes.

Leaders Dortmund were 1-0 winners over Leverkusen to maintain their 2 point lead over Bayern Munich who were also winners after they beat Kaiserslauten 2-0 at the Allianz Arena.

So with 13 games left to play, the title race seems like it will go down to the wire with Dortmund, Bayern and Mochengladbach all in the running to be crowned champions. Schalke still have an outside chance of wining the league, however, any slip ups hence forth will be fatal to their campaign.

Meanwhile, disgruntled Bayern striker Ivica Olic has made it clear that he will most likely leave the Bavarian club this summer after being frustrated with his current playing situation.

Olic has made only a handful of appearances for Bayern this season, scoring only twice which has led him to seriously consider his future at the club. Speaking to Goal.com Olic revealed that a move away from club this summer was on the decks.

“It is most likely that I will leave Bayern in the summer, as the club have not yet spoken to me,” Olic said.

“I would have preferred that they already addressed the issue. I have a family, my children go to school. I cannot wait until May to plan my future. Right now, it looks more likely that I’ll go.”

In an emotional twist, Olic revealed that when the time comes,  his two biggest regrets will no doubt be saying goodbye to the club’s supporters, and failing to prove his worth to coach Jupp Heynckes.

“The coach has seen what I can do. I feel that he can count on me more now.  The farewell to the fans is the biggest disappointment. They have seen that I can fulfill my duties here. I’ve delivered good performances recently. I have never asked for a regular place, but we play many matches and [if I play] we can save energy.”
