Edin Terzic is Borussia Dortmund’s most powerful coach since Jürgen Klopp

Sport Bild reports that Edin Terzic is the most powerful manager at Borussia Dortmund since Jürgen Klopp and influences the transfer policy at the club. 

Terzic’s power at the club is due to his longstanding affiliation with the club. Terzic has held a role at Dortmund since 2010 whether that be as a scout, youth coach, assistant coach, technical director or head coach. This has meant that he is very familiar with every department at the club.

This longstanding connection to Dortmund also means that he has a strong relationship with Hans-Joachim Watzke and he can easily discuss any issues with the longstanding Dortmund CEO. 

The majority of Terzic’s power can be seen in the club’s transfer policy. The scouts at the club draw up a list of players that could fit at Dortmund then they are discussed with sporting director Sebastian Kehl with Terzic present in the meetings. Terzic has a strong influence on the players that are eventually put on the scout’s list. 

The arrival of Felix Nmecha and Niclas Füllkrug as well as Emre Can’s contract extension and the failure to sign a right-back are all due to Terzic’s influence. The fact that Edson Álvarez also did not join the club is another indicator of Terzic’s power despite Kehl pushing to sign the Mexican the same can be said for Armel Bella-Kotchap who eventually joined PSV Eindhoven on loan

Dortmund are currently unbeaten in the Bundesliga but in every game, they have not looked impressive at all, it is only a matter of time before Dortmund end up losing and then the wheels will begin to fall off.
