Draxler: I'd fit in at Dortmund

Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler has caused a stir by saying he would probably have been a good fit with his club's arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund made an approach for the 19-year-old this summer but, despite branding their move an indecent proposal given the rivalry between the two clubs, the Gelsenkirchen native has now said Dortmund would have been an ideal club for him.

In sporting terms, I would definitely have fit into the Dortmund team.

And I don't find it all that damnable that Dortmund enquired about me. It's not like we did things any differently by signing Felipe Santana from Dortmund.
