Bundesliga club seek support from Aston Villa with cheeky jibe from Birmingham City


High-level football is back this weekend… in Germany.

As Aston Villa’s wait for a return to the Premier League continues, the Bundesliga clubs will play again from Saturday.

It is the first major European league to resume since meetings across the continent have been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

BT Sport has confirmed that it will screen each match live and the clubs are seeking the support of England as they prepare for the closed door experience.

Schalke went even further by asking for support from fans of the 20 Premier League clubs.

They posted on social media: “We have a reason for the fans of EVERY PL club to support FC Schalke 04 for the rest of the Bundesliga season! “

They came before to give supporters of each club a reason to support them, and their call to Villa was simple: “We are the only blue team you can love …”

A Villa fan said, “I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m sold and can’t wait to continue supporting my new temporary team! “

“I’m a guy!” Come on Schalke, ”posted another.

But the Gelsenkirchen camp may have made a new enemy among the supporters of Birmingham City.

One of them replied, “It’s Schalke off the list. “

“You were my German team,” said another.

Luckily, Schalke will renew his own local rivalry this weekend, facing Borussia Dortmund in the Revierderby.
