Jonas Hofmann: Happy to have signed new Borussia Dortmund contract

The 21-year-old joined Dortmund from Hoffenheim two years ago and recently scored his first Bundesliga goal against Eintracht Braunschweig.

He had two seasons left on his previous deal and the winger is delighted to have been handed a long-term extension by Dortmund.

"I've always been nurtured by BVB, I made the step from the reserves to the first team and I know that I will be given the confidence, support and patience to keep on improving," Hofmann told the club's official website.

"On a footballing and emotional level, Borussia Dortmund's overall package is hard to beat for a young player like me. I'm delighted to continue being a part of this great BVB family."

Dortmund's sporting director Michael Zorc added: "Jonas has made great strides forward in the last couple of months, but he has not achieved the end of his development just yet.

"We are pleased to work with him long term and accompany him on what hopefully will be the best part of his career."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
