It is no news that Borussia Dortmund has one of the best fans in the world, and now after signing them, Thorgan Hazard also confirms it.

Some teams have great players, some teams have great successes, and some have fans like no other. Fortunately for Borussia Dortmund, they have it all of the above. In fact, to prove that’s the case, especially when it comes to the energy circulating Dortmund’s arena is the team’s newcomer, Thorgan Hazard.

The player, who got a taste of the atmosphere at the German club earlier, says not even Camp Nou nor the Juventus Stadium in Turin have the power of Dortmund’s fans.

Speaking of his personal experience at Signal Iduna Park, Hazard said there is nothing that comes even close to it. Hazard also mentioned the stadium is not his most favorite, because all his teams lost to Borussia Dortmund in the duels.

“So far, I don’t have good memories of this stadium – I think I’ve always lost here,” Hazard noted.

“Now I hope that changes.”

“The atmosphere, with so many fans… I think it’s the best in Europe.”

Dortmund’s arena has the capacity for 81,365 seats and a mind-boggling terrace, knows as ‘The Yellow Wall.’ Visually stunning, the arena is more about the drive of Dortmund’s fanbase than anything else. It takes one verse to have the crowd explode in a glorifying choir.

“Dortmund is just a massive club, with great fans and a great team,” Hazard said, according to Bundesliga.

Hazard also spoke of Lucien Favre, with whom he reunited after playing together at Borussia Mönchengladbach. Plus, to him, Dortmund’s offer was too good of a treat to pass.

“I know the coach, we worked together at Borussia Mönchengladbach. So I’m very happy to be here, and I hope we can win titles together.”

“The DFB Cup or the Bundesliga, I know the fans would like that a lot,” Hazard explained.
