Edin Terzic will stay on as Borussia Dortmund head coach despite the club's disappointing first half of the season.

Borussia Dortmund have made the decision to keep Edin Terzic as head coach going into the second half of the season. The decision - which does not come as much of a surprise - was made during the club's mid-season analysis meeting on Thursday that featured CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke, sporting director Sebastian Kehl, and external advisor Matthias Sammer.

Despite Borussia Dortmund's struggles in the first half of the season, Terzic retains the support of those in charge according to multiple reports in Germany. The 41 year old will now look to lead the team's turnaround after the winter break.

The Black and Yellows finished first in the so called Champions League group of death, but struggled in the Bundesliga in the first half of the season. They ended the hinrunde with just one win in their last eight league matches, and find themselves six points behind fourth placed RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga standings. BVB were also eliminated from the DFB-Pokal by VfB Stuttgart.

Many fans called for Edin Terzic to be sacked following the 1-1 draw against Mainz 05 on Tuesday, but the BVB bosses decided against making a coaching change in the middle of the season. Terzic still has 18 months left on his current contract with Borussia Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund will return to Bundesliga action on January 13 as they go up against SV Darmstadt at home. Qualifying for the UEFA Champions League will likely be the main goal of those in charge for the rest of the season.
