Peter Bosz: "There is no unrest at Borussia Dortmund"

Bosz lauds 'special' Gotze after star's return

Borussia Dortmund coach Peter Bosz hailed the "special" Mario Gotze after the midfielder made his competitive return on Saturday.

Midway through the first half, the USA worldwide received the ball just outside the box, took one step to his right before firing a shot across goal and in off the left post. "These are our goals for the coming season".

Pulisic could be in for more exposure for Dortmund if Ousmane Dembele departs the squad.

New signing Maximilian Philipp, who Dortmund bought from Freiburg for 20 million euros in July, looks set to replace Schuerrle, whose cross Mario Goetze converted to score the winning goal for Germany in the 2014 World Cup final. One supporter attending Saturday's game altered his Dembele shirt to read "Dumbele".

Mario Gotze found Pulisic running to his right and played him the ball into the box. He ripped a shot toward the far post and found side netting.

Dolphins sign Maualuga, place Ford on IR
The move will count just $615,000 against the Dolphins salary cap due to them invoking the minimum salary benefit. He was a full-time starter for the Bengals in his first seven seasons, then started only six games last season.

Marc Bartra, Christian Pulisic and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were all on target as Dortmund kicked their league campaign off convincingly at the Volkswagen Arena.

The result sees Dortmund move ahead of reigning champions Bayern Munich, who beat Bayer Leverkusen 3-1 with the help of video technology on Friday night.

The Australia forward, who joined from Ingolstadt in the offseason, eluded a defender with a clever flick and finished in style just after the restart, and then blasted home after Stuttgart failed to clear a corner.

Elsewhere, Hamburg striker Nicolai Muller scored the victor in a 1-0 victory over Augsburg - but was then substituted after injuring himself when he tripped over the corner flag while celebrating.

Mueller, arguably Hamburg's best performer last season, fired the side into an early lead - Augsburg 'keeper Marwin Hitz should have done better - but then had to go off after twisting his knee while celebrating.
