Dortmund (AP) – Coach Edin Terzic from Borussia Dortmund has at least made a cautious master announcement. “You can be sure that we want nothing more than to become German champions,” he said in a talk with “Ruhr Nachrichten”. He is also sure that BVB will become champion. “I just don’t know when,” Terzic added with a smile. The runner-up is currently in second place behind Union Berlin, but three points ahead of series champions FC Bayern, who will come to Dortmund in the game after next.
Basically, he doesn’t want to look too far into the future, said the 39-year-old on Wednesday evening, “if I don’t even know who can play in Cologne in ten days”. He also doesn’t look too much at Bayern , which is currently weakening. “We’re just comparing ourselves to ourselves yesterday,” he said evasively.
He himself is definitely “BVB fan, I can’t and don’t want to hide that at all,” said Terzic. But that’s exactly why he hesitated when he was asked to become the head coach of the professionals after the interim period 20/21. “Why now?” he asked himself. And was aware: “I’ll sign the contract as the next ex-coach.” As a coach, he is “only ever as good as the result on Saturday.”
