BVB defender Nico Schulz faces legal trouble. An ex-girlfriend has filed a criminal complaint against the 29-year-old Borussia Dortmund defender for domestic violence.

    This was confirmed by the Dortmund prosecutor Sonja Frodermann to “SID” late on Saturday evening. “There was a house search and storage media were secured,” the lawyer said.

    BVB was quoted in response to a “SID” request as in the “Bild am Sonntag”: “To date, we were not aware of any investigation by the public prosecutor – concerning Nico Schulz’s private life. We take the reporting as an opportunity, the direct conversation to look at the serious allegations with the player.”
