Weidenfeller is still seen as a key player by Dortmund despite recent goalkeeping recruits, ESPN reports.

Weidenfeller was in and out of the Dortmund side last season because of chronic back problems and competition from (now Stuttgart player) Mitchell Langerak. The summer signing of stopper Roman Burki suggests that Weidenfeller will become a permanent second choice but sporting director Michael Zorc wants him to remain at the club. He said "I see the goalkeeping lineup as very, very positive because we have two excellent keepers. The coach has to decide but I hope the composition stays the same because it's a very, very good combination."

Weidenfeller recovered from injury and started as Dortmund beat Werder Bremen 3-2 Saturday.

Weidenfeller played his first game since the win over Paderborn on Apr. 18. after recovering from an ongoing back problem. He won't be happy that he conceded two but in truth wasn't responsible for either of the goals.

Weidenfeller (pelvis) is a doubt Saturday for the game with Hoffenheim, reports.

Weidenfeller missed the midweek cup triumph against Bayern Munich and may not recover from his injury in time for Saturday. Coach Jurgen Klopp stated that "pictures seem to indicate that he has muscular problems. Roman might feel better than the pictures seem to suggest, but we need to be cautious and can't just ignore the findings". Mitchell Langerak will continue in goal should Weidenfeller not regain fitness.

Weidenfeller kept a clean sheet as Dortmund defeated Paderborn 3-0 Saturday.

It was a very comfortable afternoon for the goalkeeper with the opposition only registering two shots at goal. His kicking wasn't the best at times but it had no relevance to the result.

Weidenfeller had little to do despite conceding as Dortmund were beaten 1-0 Saturday by Bayern Munich.

Even though the Bayern offense is packed with quality, Weidenfeller was rarely tested on an uneventful evening. Crucially however Bayern scored one of their few opportunities, Weidenfeller saved the initial shot from Thomas Muller but was helpless to keep out Robert Lewandowski's rebound.

Weidenfeller didn't manage to keep a clean sheet Saturday as Dortmund ran out 3-2 winners over Hannover.

Depsite conceding two at Hannover, Weidenfeller could do little about either goal. The first was down to some questionable defending while the second was an unstoppable long-range strike. The goalkeeper also did well to deny Joselu scoring an unlikely equalizer at the death.

Weidenfeller kept a third consecutive clean sheet as Dortmund tied 0-0 Saturday with FC Köln.

Weidenfeller had to be called into action on numerous occasions as Dortmund could only manage a point at home to Köln. His most important contributions were actually both in the first five minutes, the goalkeeper making smart saves from Deyverson and Anthony Ujah. Weidenfeller will now be looking to keep a fourth straight clean sheet to prevent Juventus scoring a crucial Champions League away goal on Wednesday.

Weidenfeller kept a second consecutive clean sheet Saturday as Dortmund tied 0-0 with Hamburg.

Weidenfeller added to the clean sheet he got at Schalke with an assured display in Hamburg. He had to be called into action a couple of times, making a good save from a Mohmaed Gouaida free-kick in the first half and then from a Zoltan Stieber effort in the second. Weidenfeller may well extend his clean sheet streak in a very winnable-looking next fixture against FC Köln.
