Tuesday, August 16, 2022 6:02 PM MYT BERLIN, 16 AUGUST — Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, a forward for Borussia Dortmund, has extended his contract until 2025, the Bundesliga club announced today. The announcement caps off an eventful week for Bynoe-Gittens, who scored and set up the winner in Friday’s 3-1 win over Freiburg just days after turning 18 years old. Dortmund coach Edin Terzic praised the English teenager after the win, calling him a “game changer” and “player who can make the difference for us.” Terzic brought on Bynoe-Gittens late in the game, with his team trailing 1-0. Bynoe-Gittens, who was born in London and has represented England at the junior level, has drawn comparisons to former Dortmund winger Jason Sancho. Like Sancho, who joined Manchester United in 2021 for €85 million (RM385 million), Bynoe-Gittens came through the Manchester City youth system before joining Dortmund at the age of 17. Dortmund Sporting Director Sebastian Kehl stated today that the “very special” Bynoe-Gittens has no limits. “Jamie has always been known for his speed and creativity, and his unpredictability in one-on-ones gives our squad a very unique element even at such a young age.” It’s entertaining to watch him improve himself and his game. We are still a long way from seeing the end of this development, and we will give him the necessary time,” Kehl added. Bynoe-Gittens thanked the club for their support during difficult times, which “meant a lot to me,” and stated that he was never in doubt about resigning. “After getting Covid and a few injuries at the start, it was always my goal to continue my path at Dortmund.” “I can’t wait to keep working hard on myself and my game in the coming months and years to hopefully continue to help the team.” After Friday’s win, fellow English teenager Jude Bellingham, 19, marked himself as an elder statesman at the club, thanking “sons” Bynoe-Gittens and Youssoufa Youkoko, 17, for keeping Dortmund’s unbeaten record intact in 2022-23. — AFP
