‘’The coach [Thomas Tuchel) and the officials called me and told me they wanted to sign me so I decided to play for Borussia Dortmund. The coach was very important for me because I like what he has planned for the team and I like that this includes young players.And he told me that if I work hard, I’ll play. He was very convincing and contributed to my decision. I talked to [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang on the phone. He told me that BVB is a great club. And then I came here and saw the club’s great infrastructure for myself. The overall conditions are amazing, that’s why I decided to play here’. It’s incredible to have 80,000 people watching you in the stadium. For me it’s amazing and impressive, and it was another reason for me to play for this great club and fans. Most importantly I want to integrate into the team and to play as many matches as possible. These are my main goals.’
