Schlotterbeck like Subotic and Wörns, Süle takes Hoffenheim's number

Borussia Dortmund have unveiled the shirt numbers of four newcomers. The shirt numbers for Karim Adeyemi, Salih Özcan, Nico Schlotterbeck and Niklas Süle are now clear.

Adeyemi will wear the 27 at BVB in the future, as he did at his former club RB Salzburg. At a children’s press conference at RB Salzburg, the German international explained the meaning of the number: “I chose the number because of my two best friends. My friend has Birthday in February, hence the two and my other in July, hence the seven.”

Özcan has taken the same path: As with 1. FC Köln, the central midfielder wears the number 6.

Nico Schlotterbeck and Niklas Süle both wore shirt number 4 at their last stations.

Accordingly, he follows in the footsteps of Neven Subotic and Christian Wörns, who both became German champions with Dortmund.

Süle, on the other hand, now gets the 25 at BVB, which the German national player had already worn at his first professional station TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
