Dortmund's Nuri Sahin: 'I've taken Emre Mor under my wing'

Borussia Dortmund and Turkey international Nuri Sahin says he sees a lot of himself in 18-year-old Emre Mor.

Much is expected of the BVB summer signing, but 27-year-old midfielder Sahin believes he can help the young forward fulfil his potential.

"I've been down this road myself, so I can relate to him," said Sahin following Turkey's 1-0 defeat to Croatia in their UEFA EURO 2016 Group D opener on Sunday. "I've taken him under my wing. I'll try to be there for him. He's an unbelievable talent. Now it's down to us to nurture that."
