Dortmund’s Hakimi confident Madrid will extend loan to seasons’s end

Borussia Dortmund defender Achraf Hakimi has told Spanish radio he believes he will be able to finish the Bundesliga season even if it runs beyond the end of his loan period at the club.

Hakimi is on loan from Real Madrid until June 30 and could be recalled by the Spanish club on July 1 while the delayed 2019-20 season is still being played.

But asked by Spanish radio station Cadena Ser on Monday if he thought that was likely he said: “I think if that happens [season overruns] players will be given permission to finish the season with their loans clubs. That would be the normal thing.”

Hakimi said he would be happy if the Bundesliga could resume on May 9 from its coronavirus-related suspension but isn’t taking anything for granted.

“It’s an approximate date that I think could change. I would be pleased if it were that date – the sooner the better, however we have to be cautious,” he said.

Looking at Dortmund’s current training routine, the 21-year-old full-back said: “We work in small groups in different parts of the training complex.

“I work with my group of five or six people. There is no physical contact. Until we are advised otherwise that is how training will be.”
