Hans-Joachim Watzke has once again given his backing to Edin Terzic, labelling questions over the coach’s future as nonsense.
Borussia Dortmund’s underwhelming start to the season has led some to question Edin Terzic’s future at the club. After getting just five points from three matches, first doubts are starting to appear over the 40 year old’s ability to lead BVB to the Bundesliga title. But Terzic retains the full support of those in charge at the club.
Hans-Joachim Watzke was asked about the coaching situation at Borussia Dortmund after the general assembly of the European Club Association in Berlin. And the BVB CEO he made it clear that he does not want to get involved in this speculation anymore, adding that he already gave his full backing to Terzic last month.
"“I answered this question a few weeks ago,” Watzke told Sky Sport. “I will not get involved in this anymore, because this is nonsense. I made my position on Edin Terzic very clear weeks ago.”"
When asked about Borussia Dortmund’s interest in Julian Nagelsmann, Watzke once again rebuffed the question. “From now on, I’ll only answer serious questions,” he said.
Watzke said in an interview with SportBILD last month that Terzic will be the Borussia Dortmund head coach for years to come. The 64 year old has always given his full backing to the boyhood BVB supporter, who was appointed permanent head coach before the start of last season.
While things have not gone according to plan so far this season, the hope will be that Edin Terzic can spark a turnaround in the coming weeks.
