Real Madrid had sent their scouts to monitor Bayern Munich attacking midfielder, Timothy Tillman
During last week’s UEFA Youth League Bayern Munich’s Timothy Tellman scored the winner for his side against Atletico Madrid as Bayern’s youngsters took 3 points back to Madrid and currently sit atop their Group.
According to MARCA, the German-American native had scouts from Real Madrid monitoring him throughout the game. The 17-year-old joined the Bayern youth ranks last season from Greuther Fürth, for a fee that was reported to be around €500,000 and it would rise up as a part of add-ons if certain conditions were met over the course of Tillman’s career.
Bayern were so interested in bringing the youngster to the club, that they also signed his younger brother Malik to their academy, and in a bid to keep their family together, even got his mother a job in Munich. Tillman has represented Germany at the U-17 level and has a dual citizenship, allowing him to play for both. the United States and Germany.
Legia Warsaw Punished by UEFA
The Polish side are scheduled to host Real Madrid at the Polish Army Stadium on the 2nd of November in their Champions League group stage tie. But after recent incidents which saw the Polish fans create trouble when Borussia Dortmund visited their Stadium, UEFA have banned fans from entering the stadium for their next home game.
According to MARCA, the Legia fans clashed with the police, lit flares, blocked stairwells inside the stadium and hurled objects onto the pitch. To add to that, they were also accused to singing racist chants during the game. Due to this, UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary body have sanctioned the club and ordered them to play the game in an empty stadium.
Legia are yet to make an appeal to reverse or lighten the punishment, which would see 31,000 of their fans miss the match.
