Süle Wears Replica Version of Dortmund 22-23 Home Shirt

Süle has been wearing replica shirts for the last few games. This can be seen thanks to various seams that are only part of the replica edition.

Other differences between the replica and authentic edition of the BVB 22-23 kits are the cut, the materials used, and the sizes available. The replica BVB 22-23 home kit is available up to Size 4XL, while the authentic one is only available up to XXL.

Süle has struggled with being overweight often

It is not known why Süle chose to wear the replica version, but it is likely related to the player's high weight and size. Niklas Süle apparently prefers to wear a more baggy fit.

Indeed, Süle started the 22-23 season wearing the authentic Ultraweave kit, while he switched to the replica during the campaign.

For the German national team, Niklas Süle is wearing the authentic Adidas Heat.Rdy version.
