Borussia Dortmund did everything right. At least as far as the personality of Alex Isak is concerned. About nine million euros worthy young Swedes are two years old in the BVB jersey almost without legs on the floor, ran only in U23 in the regional league.
The sensational development is crowned with a record
BVB responded and called Isak Willem II Tilburg in winter: with a remarkable success. In the Netherlands, the loan in Dortmund is now Erstligarekord and set a very old record. And so this spring added a small crown to her almost sensational development.
Thanks to the strike for Willem II against Zwolle, the 19-year-old striker is the first legion player in the Dutch home of the Lords, who scored 12 goals in the first 12 matches. In addition, Isak set four goals.
Within a few weeks she went to the star
Impressive Dortmund's odds: every 85 minutes when he scored, he is in all of the youngest 11 goals of Willem II. There is no doubt that Isak became a star in the Dutch Eredivisie within a few weeks.
These are the acoustic names that left the BVB loan behind. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored five goals in the first 12 matches in the Netherlands 18 years ago, and today's Barcelona star Luis Suárez scored four times for FC Groningen 13 years ago.
Only one was better than Isak
Since the 1964/65 season, according to the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, no Erstligakicker in Eredivisie has met as a debutant as often as Isak. Only one debutant was better than the Swedes: Dutch Hans Venneker (Feyenoord Rotterdam) managed 55 goals in 16 goals in 12 games.
Borussia Dortmund currently hires seven experts. Above all, the lack of opportunity for a game in BVB led them to a distance. At their (intermediate) stations, black and yellow players make very different experiences. Forecast: Only a few will play an important role in the future of Borussia. Dirk Krampe and Jürgen Koers summed up.
Alex Isak, who now radiates a lot of self-confidence on the pitch and brings his technical qualities to life, shot Willem II from the 16th and 8th places in the Eredivisie and the final of the Cup.
"It's fun to run as an attacker"
The team even hits the European League qualifiers in the final of the league. "Every game improves," said Isak in one of his recent interviews. "We have good offensive football and we create many opportunities, so it's fun to run as an attacker."
Isaac also returned to the Swedish national team, thanks to the flowering in the South Holland. "We see his training potential every day," said Willem II's attacker. Jordens Peters.
Isak returns to BVB or will he continue to be rewarded?
Of course, BVB is monitoring the development of his young player with pleasure and sees that he is confirmed in this way to give him a high-level match outside Dortmund. The loan ends on June 30 – Isak returns directly to the Borussia team or is still open.
