BVB director believes that Reyna is a lottery that Dortmund won. The young midfielder is the latest product of the Westfalenstadion

Dortmund

's director says that they have won the lottery for having

Giovanni Reyna

. He joined

New York City FC

back in 2015. He was a player in his team's youth system in

MLS

before coming to

Dortmund

.

The 17 years old player made 17 appearances for

Dortmund

at his debut season and this season he is being considered an important squad player. Dortmund's director believes that the player has the same potential as Pulisic who left Dortmund to join Chelsea last year. 

Cramer told Goal and SPOX of the impact Reyna has had on and off the pitch at Signal Iduna Park: "His potential is huge. Just like

Christian (Pulisic)

, he is not only an outstanding footballer, but also a really good guy. For us, it is a six in the lottery in terms of sport and marketing.

"But the latter component was not decisive for us bringing in the boy. We do not commit to deals according to nationality or marketing value, but according to sporting criteria.

"But it is a nice coincidence that someone from marketing can use [the signing] meaningfully."
