Axel Witsel leaves Borussia Dortmund to join Atlético de Madrid on a free transfer

Axel Witsel leaves Borussia Dortmund to join Atlético de Madrid on a free transfer. The club announced: “Axel Witsel is already a new Atleti player. After the agreement reached between our club and the Belgian player, who signs for one season.

“Welcome, Axel!”

Atleti added: “The Belgian, capped 124 times by the Red Devils, has won trophies at every European club he has played for: two league titles (2007/08 and 2008/09), two Belgian Supercups (2008/09 and 2009/10) and a Belgian Cup (2011) with Standard Liege; a League Cup with Benfica (2011/12), a Russian Premier League (2015), a Russian Cup (2016). And two Russian Supercups (2015/16 and 2016/17) with Zenit. And a German Cup (2020/21) and a German Supercup (2019/20) with Borussia Dortmund.

“Witsel is a midfielder who stands out for his physical deployment and good ball handling. He is a player who, due to his size, has a great ability to dominate aerial play. And to fight for the ball in the air with his opponents.

“In this way our club acquires the services of a player with extensive experience, as during his long career he has played more than 600 official matches at club level, 77 of which correspond to the Champions League and 42 to the Europa League, as well as having participated with Belgium in two World Cups (2014 and 2018) and two European Championships (2016 and 2020).”
