DORTMUND STAR WARNS BAYERN

Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller insists that the Bundesliga title race is still wide open - and that Dortmund are finally in the right form to start taking on the German Champions.

Having run Bayern close last season, Dortmund are keen to continue pushing for the top spot, and lie just three points behind the Bavarians.

"Sure, Bayern have an exceptional team with strong individual players, but they haven't won the championship title yet," Weidenfeller told the Bild.

JENNINGS CAN ADAPT

Parry has said that new signing Dale Jennings can adapt to life at Bayern Munich. Jennings, 18, has been linked with the Bavarians since the end of last season.

Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside: "He's a quiet lad, so the German won't be a problem because he can mutter in German as well as he can mutter in English.

"You don't pay that sort of money for a player and don't look after him so he'll be well looked after."
