Review and events[edit]

In the 2011–12 season, Bayer Leverkusen finished 5th in the 2011–12 Bundesliga.[1] Therefore, the club qualified for the 2012–13 Bundesliga, 2012–13 DFB-Pokal and 2012–13 Europa League.[2]

Bayer Leverkusen rejected a bid for André Schürrle worth €25 million from Chelsea F.C..[3] Bayer Leverkusen has decided not to sell Schürrle because they're 'unable to sign a replacement" because suitable replacements are "too expensive" and would be forced to sign "a weaker player" who is "overpriced".[4] Bayer Leverkusen CEO Wolfgang Holzhäuser accused Bayern Munich coach of Jupp Heynckes "tapping up" Lars Bender.[5] The club had rejected an "official" offer from Bayern Munich the previous week.[5]
