New Borussia Dortmund signing Niklas Süle has hinted that he wasn't shown the respect he deserved at Bayern München.

In a separate interview with BVB TV, Süle elaborated on his decision to come to Dortmund:

"When I talked to the club, I felt a real connection with this club's ambitions, with what I've experienced in my career so far, and with what I still want to achieve. The chances to achieve those goals ith BVB was an incredibly exciting prospect, and I can't wait for next season," said the defender, who is looking forward to playing at Signal Iduna Park as a Dortmund player.

"You can see how emotional these fans can be, and its basically the best thing in football when you have that emotion. I've played here as an opponent, and somehow I always looked forward to those games, because I think the way the Yellow Wall gets behind the team is unique in Germany."

"If we play good, honest football that inspires the fans every weekend, then we'll have a bit of an an edge going into every game. That was my experience of Dortmund as an opposing player, and hopefully that's how it will be next year as a player for this club."
