Werder on transfer speculation

7.38 a.m .:

Werder Bremen has reacted calmly to transfer rumors about national striker Niclas Füllkrug.

"We're happy for Niclas, he should now concentrate on the World Cup.

Everything else is not an issue," said Bremen's sports director Frank Baumann to the multimedia portal "DeichStube" on speculation about FC Bayern Munich's alleged interest in the 29-year-old attacker.

Füllkrug had done a lot of self-advertising with his equalizer in the 1-1 draw against Spain in the second World Cup group game for the DFB selection.

According to a report by "Sportbuzzer", those responsible for the German record champions then inquired about the goalscorer of the newly promoted Bundesliga club "without obligation" from Füllkrug's teammates from the World Cup squad.

Full pitcher could also be interesting for English clubs.

»Basically, we are also planning for the new season with Niclas Füllkrug.

There are no other thoughts at all," said Bremen's professional boss Clemens Fritz of "Sport-Bild".

“But a lot of things in football cannot be planned.

Should an immoral offer come that Niclas would also like to accept, we have to at least deal with it because of our economic possibilities.«

Iran coach Queiroz denies threats against players

Carlos Queiroz vehemently rejected reports of alleged government threats against his team after Iran’s World Cup.

But that's the world we live in," Queiroz said.

The US news channel CNN had previously reported that the Iranian players and their families had been threatened with imprisonment if they failed to sing the national anthem again in the second World Cup group game.

As a source, CNN named a person responsible for the security of the World Cup.

“We've heard a lot of stories about threats players claim to have received.

It's a shame,' Queiroz said.

The Iranian players sang along to their national anthem ahead of their last group game against the USA - most of the team fervently, some moving their lips reluctantly as they did before the 2-0 win against Wales.

Before the start against England (2: 6), the team had sent a sign of solidarity to the regime critics at home and remained silent during their own anthem.
