Edin Terzic is back in the spotlight at Borussia Dortmund. BVB sports director Sebastian Kehl has great confidence in the new head coach, but also sees the Rose successor facing a special challenge.
After a season as technical director, Edin Terzic is back on the sidelines at Borussia Dortmund. After the separation from Marco Rose, the 39-year-old should lead the black and yellow to titles again. Expectations are huge in the BVB environment, as Terzic won the DFB Cup with the club in 2021.
However, the second term as a coach will by no means be a sure-fire success. After all, the Westphalians are currently undergoing an upheaval. In addition, Terzic has a new role, as sports director Sebastian Kehl emphasized again shortly after the start of training.
“For the first time he is the head coach from the first day of preparation and has the reins in his hands,” said the BVB manager to the “kicker”. Kehl promised to support Terzic “as best as possible”.
As a long-time Borussia player, the Mendener is very popular with his own fans. Nevertheless, Kehl warned: “No matter how strong the identification is – in the end we are all measured primarily by success.”
BVB is happy about Hermann’s arrival
Peter Peter Hermann is available to Terzic as an assistant. The 70-year-old brings a lot of experience to Dortmund and has already worked for FC Bayern and FC Schalke 04 over the course of his long career.
“We are very happy to have Peter Hermann on the coaching team,” Kehl said of the commitment: “He has a lot of experience, brings a different perspective on football, has a good knowledge of human nature and knows exactly how a group works to last to be successful in the end.”
After the start of training with BVB, Terzic was confident that he could meet expectations. “We want to make the fans happy, and do it more and more regularly, if possible every three days. And at some point maybe celebrate the really big thing,” the trainer clarified in an interview with “Ruhr Nachrichten”.
