Storm of Love: serial death? This is how Dieter Bach imagines his departure

 Storm of Love: serial death? This is how Dieter Bach imagines his departure The telenovela " Sturm der Liebe " is actually unimaginable for many fans without the scheming and charismatic Christoph Saalfeld, played by Dieter Bach (56). In an interview with "liebenswert-magazin.de" the actor still thinks about a possible exit from the show. But he leaves a back door open.

For star coach Pep Guardiola the season with Manchester City is miserable. Now there is a big storm problem: striker Sergio Agüero is out for a long time.

It's anything but smooth for Pep Guardiola and Manchester City. In the Premier League, the team is chasing the title competition. Thirteenth place and only eight points are currently in the books (SERVICE: The Premier League table ).

Now there's the next bad news after the disappointing 1-1 draw against West Ham United at the weekend: Star striker Sergio Agüero threatens to be out for a longer period again.

A dog security guard was tried on Tuesday October 20 at the Marseille Criminal Court for animal cruelty. Storm, her Malinois dog, reportedly spent 500 hours locked in a tiny cage, without food or water, in the trunk of a car. Ten months suspended prison sentence were requested by the prosecutor. The decision will be released on November 10.

The 32-year-old attacker injured his thigh muscles against the Londoners and had to go out at half time. "Ten to 15 days of complete break are the minimum. If it takes a little longer, it's three weeks or a month," reported Guardiola (49) in the Sun .

The failure comes at a fatal time for the title contender. Four games in the next twelve days are due for the Citizens. Tonight it's against Marseille in the Champions League and on November 8th against Liverpool FC (Champions League: Olympique Marseille - Manchester City from 9 p.m. in LIVETICKER) .

Guardiola has to come up with something for these games. In this stress phase, there is very likely no trained striker available to him.

Because Agüero competitor Gabriel Jesus (23) has been out with groin problems for more than a month and is probably missing for a longer time. Guardiola recently expressed hopes of being able to use the Brazilian again next week. But that is virtually impossible.

Jesus himself gave information on the current status in a live stream on Twitch : He has not yet returned to team training and is only aiming for this in the coming week. There is no other center forward in Guardiola's team, as top talent Liam Delap is not eligible to play, at least in the Champions League.

Guardiola decided not to buy another striker in the summer. For him the question now arises: who can play the wrong nine?

How does Guardiola replace his attackers?

Two stars are on the shortlist: Raheem Sterling (25) and Riyad Mahrez (29). The two wingers had already played in the center of the storm in October when Agüero and Jesus were both absent. The record with the substitute center forwards was sobering: a 1-1 draw against Leeds and the 5-2 debacle against Leicester. After all, in the League Cup, Sterling impressed with a brace in the storm center in a 3-0 win against Burnley. Test

Champions League: "Unsightly": Porto coach shares against Pep

The imminent turnaround is therefore quite unlikely for the Citizens - and Guardiola is partly to blame for the bottleneck.

The Spanish coach had taken a risk at Agüero. After all, the Argentine was missing four months after a knee operation and after his return he had played three times from the start within seven days without prior use of the Joker.

Did Guardiola risk too much at Agüero?

Guardiola strongly defended himself against allegations that he had provoked the renewed injury. "He was physically strong. If you're out with a knee problem for four or five months, you run the risk. We tried to deal with it as best we could. We didn't send him back in a rush, we were incredibly patient."

That must be those responsible again. Her hope: The two-week international break after the Liverpool game in early November should be enough for Agüero to recover and Jesus to get fit again.
