Before Borussia Dortmund’s final first round match against Hertha BSC, sports director Michael Zorc Marco Roses criticized Sky-Expert Dietmar Hamann affirmed.
“I found his criticism to be entirely appropriate and justified,” said Zorc shortly and succinctly when he was at Sky on the dispute between Rose and Hamann after the win against Fürth (3-0) was addressed.
After the game last Wednesday, a lone lap of honor by double goalscorer Haaland also caused some irritation. Zorc said: “I saw the pictures afterwards too. It looked a bit strange, but I don’t think it was a deliberate action. I spoke to him again briefly, and that’s not an issue in the team either. What is this? I asked him. Nothing at all, he said. That settles the matter. “
However, Zorc couldn’t answer whether Haaland will stay with BVB beyond the coming summer: “To be honest: I don’t know. Of course, we would like him to stay in Dortmund over the summer. We don’t have to give him up Not even for economic reasons. But you know that under certain conditions he has the opportunity to change. We will certainly hold talks with him in the next few weeks in order to have more planning security. “
Zorc was also asked to give a summary of the past six months, regardless of the final preliminary round game in the capital. The Dortmund veteran said: “Cup everything is okay, homework done. Champions League suboptimal – is put in a friendly way. You can also say shit, to be honest.”
BVB sports director Zorc on the winter transfer market
As far as the Bundesliga is concerned, however, they are very satisfied with the number of points. “We haven’t always played great football. But under the conditions that we had to struggle with, i.e. permanently injured players, in principle since the first match day, we are very good with the number of points and what we have achieved in the league satisfied, “said Zorc.
Finally, the 59-year-old spoke about possible activities on the transfer market in winter: “Winter is not traditionally our transfer window. Of course Roman Bürki is a special situation. If something comes up, we deal with it. I only have Axel Witsel now read, but there is currently no status at all, not even a request. “
