Edin Terzic has vowed to give priority to attacking football at Borussia Dortmund after making the tough decision to succeed Lucien Favre as caretaker head coach.
Borussia Dortmund appointed Edin Terzic as Sunday’s replacement for Lucien Favre and the interim boss is on his side after an immediate response.
On Tuesday, the former Besiktas and West Ham assistant will take charge of BVB for the first time as they fly to Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga.
And Terzic, who also served as a scout at the Westfalenstadion during Jurgen Klopp’s tenure, has made it clear that the Stuttgart success can never be repeated.
“The last 48 hours for me have not been normal because Saturday’s defeat hurts,” he said at a news conference on Monday. “I want to thank Lucien – we worked very well.”
“Now everything is moving fast and we have to show a reaction. What we saw on Saturday was not Borussia Dortmund. We have to show a different face tomorrow.”
“I’m a product of Borussia Dortmund. I come from the region and have been a fan for ages,” he said. “I’ve been working here for 10 years now and I’m shaped by the past.”
“There are two ways you can win a football game: you can concede fewer goals, or you can always try to score one more. I’m more for the latter.”
