What’s Alexander Meier doing these days? A couple of weeks ago news made the rounds that the veteran German goalscorer was keeping fit at Philadelphia Union in the States. Now, however, a new hashtag on Twitter has come to life suggesting that the former Eintracht, HSV and St. Pauli player might find his way to a fourth tier side in Germany.
The hashtag #AlexMeierForLeutzsch has been doing the rounds among the fans of BSG Chemie Leipzig over the last few days. Even 11Freunde editor Philipp Köster has jumped on the bandwagon and used the hashtag. Whilst Köster jokingly tweeted that Meier was undergoing a medical in Leipzig, some people might have started dreaming. Even Transfermarkt’s Twitter account got in on the action, but quickly deleted its tweet.

No signs of Meier in Leipzig
The veteran striker would undoubtedly help the newly promoted side in their quest to keep hold of their place in the Regionalliga Nordost. BSG currently sit in 12th place after 4 draws from 4 matches. The team have so far only managed to produce one goal from their 360 minutes of football.
However, you shouldn’t make plans for a trip to the Alfred Kunze Sportpark, yet, if you want to see Alexander Meier in action this season. As it turns out, the hashtag was made up by the Twitter user and BSG fan Bullster who has watched his team fail to produce goals.
The club themselves made an effort to sign Meier, sporting director Andy Müller told Bild, but: “Because it was funny we decided to look into it. But, it turns out that Herr Meier has other plans.”
Had he joined the team, he would have moved to a club steeped in tradition and that has risen like a phoenix from the ashes on several occasions. The Leutzscher legend, the story of the club’s championship winning run in the 1963/64 season is among the greatest tales of G.D.R. football.
