midfielder Nuri Sahin is
enthused by the club’s
summer signings and
hopes they can cut short
domination in Germany.
The likes of Pierre-Emerick
Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Sokratis
Papastathopoulous have joined Jurgen Klopp’s side
in hopes they can put a stop to the Bavarians
repeating last season’s unprecedented treble win.
Sahin, who has 12 months left on his loan from
Real Madrid, is optimistic the new additions can
aid the club’s push to end their rival’s running
riot in the Bundesliga.
The 24-year-old told a press conference on
Tuesday: “The new guys are absolutely good
people who want to fit in well.
“We’ve already seen what [Mkhitaryan] Micki –
who joined for a club record €27.5 million – can
do. [Papastathopoulos] is a very cool, relaxed guy
and [Aubameyang] brings incredible speed and
skill with him.
“We do not want anything like last year to happen
again and we hope to have a really good season.”
Die Borussen were knocked out of both the
Champions League and DFB-Pokal by Jupp
Heynckes’ men last term, in addition to finishing
25 points behind the Bavarians in the Bundesliga
