Ciro Immobile and Dong-Won Ji completed their first training session on Dortmund soil on Friday. It consisted of prophylactic and lactate tests their teammates had already done on 4 July.

The two new arrivals will be doing an individual training programme in the next couple of days to get to the same level as the rest of the squad. For this reason, the two attacking players will not make the trip for BVB’s preseason friendly (kick-off: 1700 CET) at Heidenheim on Saturday but stay in Dortmund to work with Borussia’s athletics coaches. Due to their participation in the World Cup, Immobile (Italy) and Ji (South Korea) were granted an extended holiday.
