Paco Alcacer says he is eager to repay the trust that has been put in him.
"I'm very happy in Dortmund, at BVB and in this wonderful team. Joining Borussia Dortmund was and is exactly the right decision for me. I will do everything I can to say thank you for the trust with my performances and goals," he told BVB.de.
The 25-year-old has scored nine goals in eight appearances for Dortmund so far.
