Speaking to Borussia Dortmund’s official website, 18-year-old attacker Reinier discussed his reasoning behind join the Bundesliga club from Real Madrid on a two-year loan.
“Borussia Dortmund are a big club with a great history and a beautiful stadium. People in Brazil have followed the club very closely. Brazilian connection too with Amoroso, Dede and Tinga, among others,” said Reinier.
“My family and I could have stayed in Spain too. But when the option to join Borussia Dortmund came about, we didn’t need to think twice. Borussia have a reputation for developing players. When this option came up, we knew that it would be the right one.
“I want to grow as a player and learn new things. I would also like to continue my personal development and learn English and German. It’s important for my life going forward. I want to be successful with the club, win titles if possible and bring the fans a lot of joy.”
