I’ve No Regret Missing Out On Boniface  –Kehl

Borussia Dortmund’s sporting director, Sebastian Kehl has revealed that the club has no regret missing out on signing Super Eagles forward, Victor Boniface as replacement for Jude Bellingham.

Recall that the Nigerian international joined Bayer Leverkusen from Union Saint-Gilloise this summer.

Boniface has gone on to score seven goals and set up two in seven matches for Die Werkself.

However, in a chat with Funke Sports, stated that he has no regrets about missing out on the 22-year-old.

“I’m not upset at all because I know that timing and circumstances are incredibly important elements in my job to be able to make the right decision at the right moment.

“At the time when such transfers were being negotiated and executed, we didn’t know that Jude Bellingham would be sold.

“There was no budget, therefore. Moreover, at that time, it wasn’t necessarily the plan to add another striker to the squad. Regardless of the Boniface situation, I find it interesting how players we had on our radar developed at other clubs. By the way, there are also many examples where I’m glad they are not under contract with Borussia Dortmund,” Kehl revealed to Funke Sports.

Boniface made his debut for the Nigeria senior team on 10 September 2023, coming on in the 64th minute for Taiwo Awoniyi. He provided an assist in that match to Samuel Chukwueze.
