Nnamdi Collins was born in Dusseldorf, Germany on January 4th, 2004. He has Nigerian roots. Collins began his footballing education at Fortuna Dusseldorf before joining Dortmund as a 12-year-old in 2016. Having always been tall for his age, Collins was trained up to play at the heart of the defense – a role in which he has gone onto thrive. At just 16 years old, Collins stands at 6’1″ and can reportedly run 30 metres in only 3.8 seconds. Clearly, pace and power is therefore a crucial component of his game. However, according to Talent Hunter, the right-footed defender likes to advance with the ball from the back, is confident in possession, and is a threat from set-pieces. Collins has also been noted for his ability when in possession, with many marking him out as the perfect model of a modern central defender. “Nnamdi’s speed is his greatest weapon, In combination with his good technique, he has an extraordinary style of play. He is not the classic central defender. Despite his size, he is also a really good footballer” – Patrick Fritsch.
