Hans-Joachim Watzke campaigned for sports director Sebastian Kehl and head coach Edin Terzic at the Borussia Dortmund general meeting. The duo came under criticism after a disappointing first half of the season.
Managing Director Hans-Joachim Watzke once again broke a lance for Kehl and Terzic at the general meeting on Sunday. "Forget working on them. We will be successful with these two because they are great," Watzke asserted. "I'm 100% convinced that we'll qualify for the Champions League at the end of the season. If not, everyone has the right to criticize us." Sporting director Sebastian Kehl also spoke at the event. "Nothing is lost yet. We'll step on the gas after the World Cup break. Borussia Dortmund can't claim sixth place." Kehl also held out the prospect of winter transfers: "We will do our homework and act if necessary."
