At BVB, the criticism is getting louder. Boss Hans-Joachim Watzke doesn’t even want to start a discussion about coach Edin Terzic.
Dortmund – BVB director Hans-Joachim Watzke has given Edin Terzic carte blanche. The 63-year-old supported his coach unconditionally.
BVB trainer Edin Terzic: For Watzke, dismissal is not an issue at all
In the DFB Cup and in the Champions League, Borussia Dortmund is on schedule and is in the eighth finals. In the Bundesliga, however, BVB only hibernates in 6th place. The goal difference of +4 goals is the worst since the epidemic first half of 2014-15, which sealed the departure of Jürgen Klopp.
Coach Edin Terzic’s team often appears to be losing when attacking and disorganized when falling back. BVB director Hans-Joachim Watzke does not want to hear anything about a coaching conversation.
BVB boss Watzke about coach Terzic: “Will see great things from him”
“Edin is a man who knows and loves the club,” said Watzke Picture TV. “But he has a squad that is still subject to major fluctuations. But Terzic is doing great, so I’m sure we can enjoy him for a long time to come.”
The big plus of Terzic: he is a role model. As an avid BVB fan, the Sauerland must remain the face of the club. “Terzic is highly regarded at BVB as a whole. I hear from everyone involved how meticulous his work is. We will see more great things from him,” Watzke announced.
BVB coach Edin Terzic like Jürgen Klopp? Watzke grants job guarantee
He doesn’t even shy away from comparisons with a coaching icon: “Jürgen Klopp has devoted himself to the club for seven years. I see parallels with Edin, who is also completely focused on the club. I see that with Sebastian Kehl and with me.” The trio of coaches, team leaders and directors want to continue working together in Dortmund.
After the BVB defeats in Mönchengladbach and before that in Wolfsburg, Watzke is convinced: “Not only does he love this club, he also knows exactly what we have to do now. He is doing a great job and will continue to do so at Borussia Dortmund for a long time to come.”
