Borussia Dortmund appoint Patrick Owomoyela as international ambassador

Borussia Dortmund have appointed former defender Patrick Owomoyela as the club’s new international ambassador.

“Patrick Owomoyela was part of a successful era at our club…It’s great to have Owo back with us again,” BVB chief Hans-Joachim Watzke said.

Owomoyela joins the illustrious company of former players Karl-Heinz Riedle and Jörg Heinrich (currently assistant manager of BVB), in capacity roles at the club.

“I’m happy to be an active part of the Black & Yellow Family, especially as my heart has always been here. Being able to represent this club, my club, on the international stage makes me proud, and I’m looking forward to the interesting trips and tasks ahead,” said Owomoyela.

The 38-year-old joined Dortmund in 2008 and made 84 appearances, scoring three goals and lifting the Bundesliga title twice and the German Cup.

Beside his ambassadorial role, Owomoyela will continue to work with DFL’s overseas marketing department as commentator and presenter.
