Inside: Dos Santos in loan switch to Spain

Postby FCBayernNews » Wed Aug 08, 2007 8:50 pm


Bayern midfielder Julio dos Santos will play for Spanish top flight outfit UD Almeria this term after representatives of both clubs met to agree a deal for the 24-year-old Paraguayan’s services following the Bavarians’ friendly against RCD Mallorca on Tuesday evening. Dos Santos goes out on a season-long loan to the club promoted to the Primera Division last May. The player previously joined VfL Wolfsburg on loan during the 2006-7 winter break, but cracked a shinbone in his last training session before departing for the Wolves and failed to make a competitive appearance there.

<b>Luca Toni closes on comeback</b>
Towering Italy striker Luca Toni is set for a place in the matchday squad for Saturday’s Bundesliga opener at home to Hansa Rostock. “He’s worked very hard in training today. He might make the bench against Rostock, giving us another option in attack,” coach Ottmar Hitzfeld explained after Monday’s Cup tie in Burghausen.

<b>Sosa not rated doubtful</b>
Argentine midfielder José Ernesto Sosa should be fit to face promoted Hansa Rostock on the opening day of the new season this weekend. Sosa was thought doubtful after hobbling out of Tuesday evening’s friendly away to RCD Mallorca following a hard challenge by the home side’s Ramis on 57 minutes, but the new signing’s ankle injury has turned out not to be as serious as initially feared.

<b>Germany boss Löw at Allianz Arena</b>
Germany coach Joachim Löw will watch Friday’s official Bundesliga season opener between champions VfB Stuttgart and last term’s runners-up Schalke 04, before travelling to the Allianz Arena for Saturday’s meeting between Bayern and Hansa Rostock. “There’s a real sense of anticipation. Football is booming in Germany,“ Löw declared, “I’m expecting more attacking and more courageous football.” Löw described Bayern as favourites for the title, “but they’ll have to work for it.”

<b>Lucio called up by Dunga</b>
After fully recovering from a hernia operation, Lucio is set to resume international duty for Brazil. Coach Carlos Dunga has called up the 29-year-old centre-half for a friendly against Algeria in Montpellier, France, on 22 August. Lucio missed Brazil’s triumphant Copa América campaign in the summer with injury.

<b>Cup draw on Sunday</b>
After squeezing past Burghausen on Monday, Bayern go into the draw for the second round of the DFB German Cup this Sunday, 12 August. Germany women’s international Annike Krahn (FCR 2001 Duisburg) will make the draw live on TV. The 16 second round matches will be played on 30 and 31 October.

<b>Rummenigge voted onto League board</b>
Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has won a place on the 11-strong German Football League Association board as a representative of the 18 Bundesliga clubs following a vote at the association’s AGM in Berlin on Tuesday. As expected beforehand, Borussia Dortmund chief Reinhard Rauball was unanimously elected association president.
