Hakimi wins German Super Cup with Borussia Dortmund

The on-loan Real Madrid defender backed the Englishman to flourish, and also had a word of warning for Champions League opponents Barcelona and Inter

Achraf Hakimi won the German DFL-Supercup with Borussia Dortmund after they defeated Bayern Munich 2-0 on Saturday.

Paco Alcacer and Jadon Sancho's efforts were all the Black and Yellows needed to claim the title for the sixth time in their history.

The on-loan Real Madrid wing-back Hakimi featured for 15 minutes in the encounter after replacing Raphael Guerreiro.

The Supercup title is the third for the 20-year-old defender in his career after winning the 2018 Uefa Champions League and 2017 Fifa Club World Cup with Real Madrid.

The Morocco international, who made 21 appearances for the Westfalenstadion outfit last season to help them finish as Bundesliga runners-up, will hope to feature more prominently this term.

Borussia Dortmund will next lock horns with Uerdingen in Friday’s German DFB-Pokal game.
