Edin Terzic was appointed by Borussia Dortmund as Lucien Favre’s replacement on Sunday and the interim boss is on his side after an immediate response.
Edin Terzic has vowed to give priority to attacking football at Borussia Dortmund after making the difficult decision to succeed Lucien Favre as caretaker head coach.
On Tuesday, the former Besiktas and West Ham assistant will take charge of the BVB for the first time as they travel to Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga. And Terzic, who also worked as a scout during Jurgen Klopp’s time at the Westfalenstadion, has made it clear that the success of Stuttgart can never be replicated.
He said at a Monday news conference: “The last 48 hours for me have not been normal because Saturday’s defeat hurts. I would like to thank Lucien – we have worked very well. It’s all going quickly now and we have to show a reaction. On Saturday, what we saw was not Borussia Dortmund. Tomorrow we have to reveal a new face. I’m a product of Borussia Dortmund. I come from the region and have been a fan for ages.
For 10 years now I have been working here and I am influenced by the past. You can win a football match in two ways: you can concede fewer goals, or you can always try to score one more. I’m more for the latter,” he said.
