Sebastian Kehl has heaped praise on Edin Terzic, saying that they were and are fully convinced that he is the right man for the job at Borussia Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund endured a difficult start to the season, and there were some calls for Edin Terzic to be sacked after the 2-2 draw against Heidenheim last month. But the 40 year old managed to get the club out of troubled waters. And the Black and Yellows have since won their last four matches in the Bundesliga.

While Terzic has always enjoyed the support of Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke, there were reports of disagreements between him and Sebastian Kehl over transfer decisions in the summer. But the BVB sporting director has now hailed Terzic for the job he is doing. In an interview with WAZ, Kehl said that they have never had any doubts over Terzic’s ability.

"“If a coach who is only 40 years old wasn’t able to develop further, then that would be a bad sign and things wouldn’t work.”“Edin is able to make tough decisions. He shows courage when he makes changes in games at half-time. He wants to develop this team in all areas. I see every day that he is incredibly driven, incredibly ambitious. We were and are convinced of him and have never had any doubts about that.”"

Edin Terzic nearly led Borussia Dortmund to the Bundesliga title last season, and will be determined to go one better this time around.

Sebastian Kehl also commented on his own future at Borussia Dortmund, with his current contract set to expire at the end of next season. The former BVB captain is very relaxed about his future at the moment, and is only concerned about leading the club to sporting success.
