Adnan Januzaj is enjoying a solid start to his loan spell at Borussia Dortmund.
Having won their opening four games of the Bundesliga season, Dortmund is sitting at the top of the league on goal difference ahead of Bayern Munich.
Januzaj came on during Dortmund’s 4-2 win over Hannover at the weekend to make his competitive debut and there are real high hopes for him getting some regular game time this season.
With so much quality in their squad, Januzaj is unlikely to become a guaranteed starter but all he can do is try to impress Dortmund’s boss Tuchel and hope for the best.

Januzaj will have been working hard in training this week ahead of Dortmund’s game against Krasnodar tonight in the Europa League and this is a competition where the young Belgian may be given more responsibility.
It’s always tough playing in the Europa League because of the Thursday night fixtures but that’s why signing Januzaj on loan could help with the extra pressure of more fixtures.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again that so long as Januzaj is getting plenty of football out in Dortmund, it will be a fantastic loan spell for him. If he doesn’t, it may well end up being a waste of time.
