Career of Sule and his transfer to Dortmund
Sule has made 159 appearances for Bayern since joining them from Hoffenheim in 2017. Furthermore, he has 37 appearances for the national team. Towering at 1.85 meters, the 26-year-old known for his passing and holding ability during the game. For a player of this stature, Sule’s speed is quite commendable. Registering at 34.8 Km/h this season.
Sebastian Kehl from Dortmund likes Sule for the experience he has along with the calmness that the 26-year-old possesses during the build-up. Having a defender with his qualities will be without a doubt a blessing for any team.
Sule’s physicality has been a big problem for many teams. This particular aspect was show-cased in a better way when the defender came against Barcelona this season. During the match, it looked like Sule was playing against a team of kids.
Even the former manager Hans Didier Flick praised Sule. Sule upon his arrival had to prove himself in order to break into the 11. The German International now has become an important part of the club hierarchy.
Without a doubt, Sule is a great signing for Dortmund now. With the talent, skills, and abilities that the 26-year-old possess, it’s very hard to win a 1 vs 1 situation against him. Now, Bayern faces the mammoth task of replacing the German International.
