Leverkusen win relegation battle in Florence.
A good end to the week for the German club Leverkusen after manager Noisy re-emerged from the shadows to take back control and focus over the club and the results have been to a positive note.
Thursday night saw us draw to relegation rivals Manchester United and we have followed up that point with a superb comeback win in Florence against Fiorentina.
Gomez put Fiorentina ahead in the 13th minute and it looked like they would lead at the break until David Silva who was recently linked with a move away from Leverkusen drew the Germans level.
Silva on the move again?
Then a unlikely goalscorer won it for Bayer when Omer Toprak buried the ball in the back of the net in the 70th minute and Bayer held on in the closing stages with Gomez receiving his marching orders in the 89th minute for a wild lunge on Calhanoglu.
Toprak with the winner
In recent Transfer news we have seen interest in Kucka after he impressed for Slovakia at the Euros
but he is a vital part of the Leverkusen setup and we need to keep versatile players like him for the battle ahead.
Silva is another who is rumoured to be unhappy in Leverkusen but only one club moved for him and it wasn’t to what we wanted for the player.
This afternoon has seen another club come in for Leno a offer which we will mull over before deciding but again he is a young player with a lot of potential in a position which is hard to fill in SM.
Very little action has happened in the transfer market this season and it is something we will look at addressing in the coming weeks, One thing is certain however the books are very healthy and we do have 120m+ to spend on the right players.
