Dortmund and coach Rose end cooperation

After an “intensive analysis of the season” with managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke, sports director Michael Zorc, licensed player boss Sebastian Kehl and consultant Matthias Sammer, the Dortmund bosses came to the conclusion that the coach should be fired. «This day is not an easy one for any of us, because the mutual respect among each other was, is and remains great. After a season that was unsatisfactory for various reasons, we had to realize that we didn’t get the most out of our opportunities in many areas,” said Watzke.

The former Gladbach coach (costing a transfer fee of 5 million euros) was not able to convince in his debut season at Dortmund. In the DFB Cup there was a defeat in the round of 16 at second division FC St. Pauli, in the Champions League it was already over in the preliminary round despite a feasible group. In the Europa League, the quick end against Glasgow Rangers followed. Although BVB finished runners-up in the Bundesliga, the club had no chance against rival Bayern.
