We're better than Dortmund – Wagner urges Bayern to respond

We're better than Dortmund – Wagner urges Bayern to respond
Bayern Munich forward Sandro Wagner dismissed any suggestions the club were rebuilding, saying the Bundesliga champions have a better squad than Borussia Dortmund. Dortmund are four points clear atop the table and seven ahead of Bayern after winning a thrilling Der Klassiker on Saturday. Wagner feels Bayern are better than Dortmund despite their contrasting starts to the season, as the Germany international urged his team to respond and win the league title. "It's crazy when you look at the league table. We are fifth, which can't be the aspiration of Bayern Munich or us players," he said. "We have to win the Bundesliga title this year, anything else would be a disappointment. We have the best team by far, in Germany. Disappointing to say the least #BVBFCB 3-2 pic.twitter.com/PvkSgbtj50 — FC Bayern English (@FCBayernEN) November 10, 2018 "Of course, Dortmund have played a couple of good games, but in my opinion we are the better team. "Therefore, every single player needs to have the ambition to become a German champion. To say it's a rebuilding phase or similar is rubbish. "We have to win the Bundesliga."

Rooney: Kane and Sterling are England superstars

Rooney: Kane and Sterling are England superstars
Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling are already superstars for England, according to Wayne Rooney. The former Manchester United striker will win his last international cap in a friendly against United States at Wembley on Thursday. Rooney was part of a 'Golden Generation' of England players who failed to progress beyond the quarter-finals of any major tournament. Kane and Sterling, meanwhile, helped England reached the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, the Tottenham striker claiming the Golden Boot after hitting six goals in Russia. And Rooney feels it is unfair to suggest Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate does not have any world-class players at his disposal. "I think they've got superstars," Rooney told a news conference. "Harry Kane has been top goalscorer in the Premier League for three or four years.  "Raheem Sterling in the last couple of years has been fantastic. I don't think it's fair to say the England team hasn't got superstars.   "What you're saying is we had some great established players: David Beckham, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand, John Terry... why didn't it work? I've no idea. pic.twitter.com/SSZMTwVujd — Wayne Rooney (@WayneRooney) November 12, 2018 "We tried to be successful. We maybe never had the squad, we had the startling 11 which was very good but going into the tournament we maybe never had that back-up. But I think we had a great team, we were unlucky on a couple of occasions, going out on penalties. "We gave our best; it wasn't to be. It's a chance now for this new generation of players to take up that mantle."
