Like the BVB on its coach

The BVB pulls the ripcord after a disappointing season – and separates from coach Marco Rose. (K) a completely surprising decision. A successor already seems to have been found. With Edin Terzic, an old acquaintance is to take over at Borussia Dortmund.

The news of the discharge of coach Marco Rose on Friday afternoon unexpectedly burst in the spirit of optimism at Borussia Dortmund. After a grueling season, the runner -up had just won the transfer market for himself with more disappointments as happiness moments and struck there in a remarkable way: the two central defenders Nico Schlotterbeck and Niklas Süle and the quick offensive player Karim Adeyemi were attracted, apparently also with personal intervention of the (Ex) coaches.

Three German internationals had decided on BVB and thus somehow against FC Bayern, who had been busy with completely different things in the past few weeks.

Even a real master fight in the 2022/2023 season seemed suddenly possible in view of the coups. Also because other vulnerabilities had been identified in the squad. Cologne’s Salih Özcan is to come for Mittefeld, a robust six, a mentality player, a leader.

rose took over poorly balanced squad

In the storm, the Borussians are in very promising negotiations with the buffalous Sebastien Haller, who had shown BVB twice with Ajax Amsterdam in the Champions League. And that was just one of the main problems of the Dortmund.

The dismantling in European competitions (premier class and Europa League) against actually significantly weaker opponents and the embarrassing end in the DFB Cup at FC St. Pauli. Far too little for the demands of the association, which Germany’s second lighthouse wants to be so much like to be – and emotionally desperately desperately desperately desperately on this dream.

Just like the coach on the fluctuating performance of his team, especially on the often bird winch defense: “We have not lived up to our demands there (note. The editor in the cup competitions). Competitions that always pull the plug a bit again and again because it is what gets stuck. “

Rose had taken over a poorly balanced squad in Dortmund. There were no options on the defensive outer lanes, and also in the central midfield. Even this could not compensate for the amazing development of the 18-year-old super talent Jude Bellingham, who had become the most important player in the team during the season, became the boss on the pitch. The Englishman is also the only footballer in the squad who benefited from the collaboration in his personal development.

Bellingham is the only footballer in the squad that has become significantly better. Certainly one thing over which rose stumbled. Which can be interpreted in the sentences of club boss Hans-Joachim Watzke, in which he talks about the fact that in many areas one did not get the “maximum out of our possibilities”.

Bellingham thanks Rose

By the way, Bellingham was one of the first to react to the separation of Rose. At Twitter he posted two emotional, intimate photos with the chief and a assistant coach. He wrote “Thank you”. Marco Reus, the captain, also reported. He set a crying emoji under the Instagram post of BVB.

BVB, Thomas Doll Wutrede

In addition, the black and yellow had to struggle with injuries over a period of the season. Over 2000 failure days are in the squad’s medical record. This fact was also registered in the BVB command center. A complicated starting point for the trainer, who had been lured into the Ruhr area with a lot of roar and a efficient transfer fee by Borussia Mönchengladbach. At that time, under the responsibility of squads director Michael Zorc, who was adopted last weekend with an impressive choreography of the south grandstand after 44 years.

His successor, which has been certain for a long time, is Sebastian Kehl. The separation from Rose is his first independent official act, even if the predecessor Michael Zorc, Watzke and BVB consultant Matthias Sammer sat at the table in the decisive conversation.

Rose and his coaching team suffered system damage again and again with BVB. Letongian appearances changed with arrogants and then again with a few spectacular highlights. Inexplicable individual mistakes, especially the national players Julian Brandt and Emre Can, kept having a nuisance, which was about to bloom.

During the appearances in front of spectators in this season in the middle of a leaking pandemic, BVB rarely managed to inspire the stadium, which can be a temple of extreme passion. “It is important for us that we as a team make it to carry the mood from the pitch into the stands,” said Rose in early October and repeated itself several times during the season.

the BVB is a mystery far too often

Before the first game with full utilization against system rival RB Leipzig in early April, a meeting between Rose and some fan representatives had occurred. But this delicate plant of rapprochement was mercilessly trampled by the team. The disaströse 1: 4 against the rival from Roses hometown not only destroyed the last master dreams that hardly existed after a despondent and bloodless 1-1 in Cologne on the day before. The BVB was again a mystery. As so often, as too often this season, in which FC Bayern had once again suffered cracks in national dominance.

And now it should focus on NTV.de information Roses predecessor Edin Terzic. In December 2020, he followed the Eternal Zauder Lucien Favre (who would probably return to his ex-club Borussia Mönchengladbach), under which he had worked as an assistant coach. After a long phase of finding and the impending mission of the Champions League, the Sauerlanders were able to create something like a spirit of optimism. He had stabilized the unsettled team, had mowed the tiresome eternity theme mentality from the lawn and created a connection between the team, bank and fans.

A spectacular series, initiated by Ansgar Knauff’s first Bundesliga goal at the 3-2 in Stuttgart in early April, brought Borussia back to the premier class. Knauff no longer played a role under the successor Rose and was awarded to Frankfurt in winter. With Eintracht, he started a furious journey over the continent, was a key player, and finally Europa-League champion and the UEFA as the best young professional.

a “BVB fan” takes over

In the deserted Berlin Olympic Stadium, BVB has meanwhile triumphed against RB Leipzig at the end of last season in the DFB Cup final. It was the end of a journey for Terzic who had already slept into “BVB bed linen” as a child and had never lost sight of the club at his apprenticeships in Turkey and England.

He posted two pictures on Instagram a few days after the victory against Leipzig. One showed him in the fan curve in the 5-2 in the final against Bayern Munich in 2012, the other with the DFB Cup as a coach of Borussia. For the first time since the departure of heart coach Jürgen Klopp in 2015, the Dortmund fans felt that the right coach had been in the right place at the right time. A longing was breastfed. The club’s desperate search for the perfect man seemed to be over for the moment. The problem: The deal with rose was already fixed. Terzic took a back seat as a technical director, but was ready, but held inquiries from the Bundesliga for coaching engagements.

Now Terzic is probably back on the bench. For the first time without a network and double floor. Like Thomas Tuchel, Peter Bosz, Peter Stöger, Lucien Favre and Marco Rose and somehow after him, the 39-year-old is now alone in the wind. With a new squad, a new squads director, great expectations and a nervous environment. Exciting times in Dortmund.
