Borussia Dortmund sacks Head Coach Edin Terzic



Borussia Dortmund have parted ways with manager Edin Terzic after he requested an immediate termination of his contract.

Under Terzic, Dortmund reached the Champions League final in the 2023-24 season but were defeated by Real Madrid at Wembley.

The club stated that they accepted Terzic’s request after a mutual discussion.

“Following the match at Wembley, I sought a meeting with the club’s senior management. After nine years at BVB, including six as part of the coaching staff and two and a half as head coach, I believe the club should start a new era with a new leader on the touchline,” said the 41-year-old Terzic.

“Those close to me know that this decision has been very difficult over the past few weeks. However, after thorough discussions, my fundamental feeling remains unchanged.

“I wish Borussia Dortmund all the best. Thank you and see you soon.”

Terzic started his coaching career at Dortmund’s academy from 2010 to 2013 before becoming an assistant to Slaven Bilic at Besiktas. He followed Bilic to West Ham in 2015 but left after Bilic was sacked in November 2017, rejoining Dortmund as Lucien Favre’s assistant the following year.

After Favre’s dismissal in December 2020, Terzic served as interim coach until the end of the season, leading the team to a German Cup victory over RB Leipzig. He later became the club’s technical director before being appointed as manager in 2022.

Dortmund finished as Bundesliga runners-up last season, narrowly missing out on the title after failing to beat Mainz on the final day, and secured a fifth-place finish in the 2023-24 season, qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

“Edin Terzic has done an outstanding job at BVB, and we owe him a great debt of gratitude,” said Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke. “Edin and I will always remain friends.”
