The saga around Ruud Van Nistelrooy is never-ending. The Dutchman’s move to Real Madrid almost seemed to be a possibility in recent weeks and not just a rumour. Nistelrooy himself wants to return to the Bernabeu but Bastian Reinhardt, the sporting director is standing in the way. Van Nistelrooy’s contract expires in June of this year and Reinhardt does not want to loan him out a result. Armin Veh recently confirmed that Ruud will not be allowed to leave the club.
Hamburg beat Felix Magath’s Schalke side 1-0 in their last outing, thanks to a goal from their troubled Dutchman. Frankfurt was hammered by Hanover. Hanover won the game 3-0. Frankfurt’s defensive problems are threatening to derail their campaign and their challenge for a European spot. Look for HSV to win this one.
