Sebastian Kehl has said that he has full faith in Borussia Dortmund head coach Edin Terzic, who has come under fire for the team's performances and results in recent months.

Things have certainly not gone according to plan so far this season for Borussia Dortmund, who have been left to battle for fourth place after their challenge for the Bundesliga title failed to transpire. The Black and Yellows have struggled with inconsistency all season long, with the team's performances in the Bundesliga leaving a lot to be desired.

Edin Terzic's pragmatic style of play has also been the subject of plenty of criticism among supporters, with many calling for him to be sacked. But Sebastian Kehl has made it clear that the BVB head coach retains the full backing of those in charge.

"We made the decision that we wanted to continue on this path together. We are not having any discussions about the coach. Our head coach is Edin Terzic, he sets the direction. We believe that we will be successful with him," Kehl said during his appearance on Sport1-Doppelpass.

Regardless, the Borussia Dortmund sporting director has also stated that he is not satisfied with the team's performances and standing in the Bundesliga. And he is of the opinion that they need to get more out of the squad. "Nobody at Borussia Dortmund is making light of the situation. We're not satisfied with our performances and our current position in the table. There is plenty of room for improvement."

"We now have the opportunity to show what we're made of against good opponents. That's a challenge for all of us, not just the coach. We have to try to get more out of this squad - and quickly."

Borussia Dortmund are currently fourth in the Bundesliga standings, one point clear of fifth placed RB Leipzig. They will make the trip to Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga this weekend, before taking on PSV Eindhoven in the second leg of their Champions League tie.
