BVB, News: Edin Terzic criticizes his own team
Coach Edin Terzic criticized his team after the 3-2 friendly win against Rot-Weiss Oberhausen. “Today we liked far fewer things than we disliked. You could tell that we still had to tackle a few issues,” he said.

BVB, News: Terzic on the injured and Emre Can
Edin Terzic also gave updates on the most recently injured players: “Youssoufa Moukoko and Karim Adeyemi started during the week, i.e. in team training since Monday. They have been able to complete the entire program so far. It’s a bit different with Felix Nmecha, who has been with us for two and a half weeks. He has already done parts with the team from individual training and now he has completed the first units. But that looks really good.”
In the meantime, Terzic is explicitly pleased that Emre Can, who has been plagued by injuries time and again, was able to “come back healthy from the summer break and start straight away. That wasn’t often the case. That was a problem in the summer and he missed a lot of parts of the preparations in the winter too. Now he makes a very good impression. I think he’s played a really important role not only with us, but especially in the national team over the last few months. And we’ll measure him by that.”
According to Terzic, this development is “exactly what we had in mind when we signed him. But that’s also exactly what he had in mind. He’s become more and more important over the course of the second half of the season. Now it’s about staying on the right path. Emre is also an extremely important contact person for me.”
BVB, News: Göktan Gürpüz is moving to Turkey
Göktan Gürpüz is moving from Borussia Dortmund’s reserves to the Turkish first division club Trabzonspor, where he has been given a contract until 2026. The midfielder switched from FC Schalke 04 to BVB in 2016, but missed the leap to the professional team. Last season he collected two points in 14 third division games.
“We wish Göktan all the best and every success in Turkey after seven years at Borussia Dortmund,” said Ingo Preuss, sporting director of the Dortmund reserve.
