Alexander Isak of Borussia Dortmund had a great day working out on his first day with the Bundesliga club. According to sources from Team headquarters on Wednesday morning, Alexander Isak completed his first training at Borussia Dortmund.
“It is a pleasure that he is here now and has his first training behind him. I think he feels even better than before, “said coach Thomas Tuchel, to the many media outlets present at the scene.
Alexander Isak was able to convert two goals in an intrasquad practice game where he left a nice impression on his new team.
Despite rumors especially by some British tabloid that claimed the team coach Thomas Tuchel did not know about the signing until last minute and that there was a feud between the coach and team executives.

To refute that claim, the sources from the team have expressed that Coach Tuchel was in full praise of Alexander and this is what he had to say about the young man.
“He is a very strong player, who is a combination of strength who can also play well with his back to the goal. The transfer makes 100 percent sense and offers the club long-term planning and stability.”
The next game for Borussia Dortmund is against Mainz 05, who are in 11th place in the Bundesliga, on Sunday January 29th, 2012.
Hope to see Alexander electrify the soccer world with his blistering ability to score and play like a seasoned professional at just 17 years old.
