The fans of Borussia Dortmund received only a few bright spots on the embarrassing home bankruptcy against VfL Bochum (3: 4). One of them was Jamie bynoe-Gitten. The responsible persons also rave about BVB-Youngster.

Since Jadon Sancho’s departure, Borussia Dortmund has been missing in individual quality on the wing. The tricky Englishman, which it moved to Manchester United in the summer of 2021, was simply not replaced.

During his starting debut in the small district derby against Bochum, Jamie Bynoe-Gitten showed that this player profile can give BVB a lot.


“He shows things that we are missing and that we don’t have in the squad,” said coach Marco Rose: “This is a real one-on-one on the wing at speed.” The 17-year-old had justified his line-up, according to the BVB coach.

BVB: Jamie Bynoe-Gitten has to get used to the “pace”

The fact that the young talent had to leave after just under an hour was due to his fatigue. Bynoe-Gitten, which was carefully built up in the U19 of the BVB, “has to get used to the pace here,” said Rose.

Bynoe-Gitten also rave about his achievements. “He has this carelessness that young players often bring with him. A player like him who sometimes passes two or three opponents, we often missed the wings this season,” said Julian Brandt and predicted a successful future to the Englishman : “He has everything it needs for his next big step with us.”

In the stadium, his use was regularly accompanied by applause from the ranks. Not only the BVB fans hope that the offensive jewel will be seen more often with the professionals in the future.
