Breel Embolo, who joined Borussia Mönchengladbach from Schalke 04 earlier in the summer, claims he didn't consider leaving 'The Royal Blues' for any other club in Germany than Gladbach.

"I thought long and hard about it, but I knew that if I was going to join another club in Germany, it could only be Gladbach," the striker told Rheinische Post and added:

"After talking to the coach and the sporting director, it was clear for me that there was no other path than this one for me.

"Borussia have developed well in recent years. We'll now take the next step together," Embolo said.

Gladbach paid €10 million to bring Embolo to Borussia-Park.
