Axel Witsel has impressed from day one since he joined Borussia Dortmund from Chinese side Tianjin Tianhai - formerly known as Tianjin Quanjian - in the summer.

The central midfielder's instant impact may have come as a surprise to some - but not to Witsel himself.

"It hasn't surprised me, no. I focused a lot on keeping in good shape and maintaining a high level in China," Witsel said in an interview with Kicker and went on:

"I also had very good players teammates and opponents there. That shouldn't be underestimated."

Witsel has made 24 appearances for Dortmund so far, scoring three goals and making one assist.
