Roc Nation has announced the signing of Borussia Dortmund midfielder and Belgian International Axel Witsel. Witsel currently competes in the Bundesliga and the UEFA Champions League with Borussia Dortmund but sports multiple trophies and personal accolades from leagues across Europe and Asia. Witsel is a key player of the Belgian National team for 10 years and counting, with over 100 appearances and three major tournaments, finishing into the historic 3rd place in Russia’s World Cup (World Cup 2014, UEFA Euro 2016, World Cup 2018).
“I’m very excited to join the Roc Nation Sports family”, said Witsel. “I have seen first-hand the great work they have done for their athletes, and I look forward to working with them as my career progresses.”
“Axel is a special player, on and off the pitch. We are thrilled to welcome him to the Roc Nation Sports family,” said Michael Yormark, President and Chief of Branding & Strategy for Roc Nation. “We look forward to working alongside Axel to expand his global reach and create unique partnership opportunities.”
Witsel is the fifth footballer to sign with Roc Nation Sports, joining Jérôme Boateng, Eric Bailly and fellow Belgians Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne.
