Dortmund and BVB: a symbiosis
Just imagine, some guy with a wild head of hair and stripped to the waist stops his car in the middle of the road, sings, hugs complete strangers and dances on his car roof. Should you call the police? No way! This guy is going to get his own parking space painted on the road!
Completely normal? Well, at least when this guy is called Neven Subotic and he’s just become a German Champion with BVB. This is what actually happened: in 2011, on the way from the stadium after the match, the defender was being chauffeured through the city to the next celebrations when they got stuck on Lindemannstraße near the stadium. Neven took this opportunity to get out and dance on the roof of the car. BVB fans decided to thank him for this by spraying his very own parking space onto the asphalt in the middle of the road – and the authorities even turned a blind eye.
This episode just shows the sort of relationship there is between the City and the club.
