This lists a German source and a French source. The quotes are all from the German source, typeset using {{translated quote}} so the reader when considering the English can also compare it to the German. Were all of these things originally said in German, and then translated into English? If those people were all speaking to a German audience, then probably yes; but depending on the audience, maybe not. The wording of the English here looks as if it was taken from the Daily Mail article; if so, the Daily Mail article should be listed. Which raises another question: en.wn policy calls for preferring to use English-language sources. It seems English-language sources were available when it was written. It's unclear whether there was information in the non-English sources that wouldn't have been available in English. This writer seems fairly fluent in English. Why use two non-English sources and no English ones? --Pi zero (talk) 23:34, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

About the sources[edit]

@Pi zero: There are English sources available. I preferred the news from official website of BVB and Stade Rennais. I did not use Daily Mail. The translated quotes are from the English version of the news article on BVB. (I had commented it in the source).
