Dortmund confirm surprise departure of head coach Edin Terzic

Edin Terzic is leaving Borussia Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that head coach Edin Terzic will leave the club with immediate effect. 

According to a club statement, Terzic asked Dortmund to terminate his contract, and the club have agreed to his request. 

“It is incredibly painful for me to say this to all Black & Yellow fans, but today I am parting company with Borussia Dortmund, ” stated Terzic, who guided Dortmund to the Champions League final and a fifth-place finish in the Bundesliga in the 2023/24 season. 

"It was a huge honour to win the DFB Cup with BVB and to lead this fantastic club to the Champions League final. fter the game at Wembley, I asked for a meeting with the club’s senior management team, because after ten years at BVB – including five on the coaching staff and two and a half as head coach – I feel that the club’s new era should begin with a new man on the touchline. 

"Everyone close to me knows that this has been a very difficult decision for me to take over the last few weeks, but after intensive discussions my fundamental feeling has not changed. I wish Borussia Dortmund the very best, and this isn’t goodbye – it’s seen you soon. Heja BVB!” 

Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke commented:

“Edin Terzic has done an outstanding job in his time at BVB, and we all owe him a huge debt of gratitude. Edin and I will always remain friends.”
