Thomas Meunier joins Borussia Dortmund from PSG
Borussia Dortmund signed right-back Thomas Meunier from Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) after he was won over by the club's passionate fans during a Champions League game.
The Belgium defender signed a contract through the end of the 2023-24 season, joining international teammates Axel Witsel and Thorgan Hazard at the German club.
"When you speak about Dortmund, you always speak about 81,000 supporters screaming and shouting," Meunier said in a video on the Dortmund website.
"The reputation is made for years and years and when you play really for football, you're looking for something like this, to get that thrill. You're looking for something exciting." Meunier was particularly impressed by the atmosphere at Dortmund's stadium when the team played PSG in the Champions League in February.
"I was really enjoying the moment. You know, the noise, the supporters, the vibe. The supporters are so close and you really feel and you really know where you are," he said. "I was smiling like a child on the pitch."
Meunier won the French league three times with PSG. His contract there expires next week.
