Borussia Dortmund: Gittens gives an insight into the emotional world

On September 3rd, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens was on the pitch for the last time for BVB. A complicated shoulder injury put the Englishman out of action since the home game against TSG Hoffenheim. 141 days have passed. He now celebrated his comeback against Augsburg. After missing 17 competitive games, BVB coach Edin Terzic brought his protégé on in the 70th minute. Only five minutes later he scored the important goal to make it 3:2.

Now Gittens himself spoke about his goal and the emotional scenes during his goal celebration. “I’m happy to have scored after my four-month absence and it feels good to be back on the pitch with the lads,” said the Englishman. Then he gave a glimpse of how he perceived the moments of goal celebrations. “I thought about the fact that the last few months have been tough with the injuries. I missed four months, then scoring a goal like that was the best thing that could have happened to me. I got so emotional I almost cried on the pitch,” said the 18-year-old. “The goal meant a lot to me,” he then admitted.

Borussia Dortmund: Terzic praises Gittens

At the BVB press conference before the game against Mainz 05, BVB coach Edin Terzic spoke about the return of his protégé. “He’s a fantastic boy,” said Terzic. “He showed how good he is for us after his substitution. He has the ability to resolve one-on-one situations in very tight situations and create a goal threat for us. He did that at the beginning of the season, then scored in Freiburg and we really missed him with his skills and quality,” he added afterwards.

The 40-year-old left it open whether Terzic would throw him in from the start after the strong performance against Mainz. Due to Gittens’ good performance and the rather mixed performances of Karim Adeyemi and Donyell Malen so far this season, the Englishman should have justified hopes.
