The Dortmund CEO does not intend to make a purchase in January due to the club's poor economic situation.
Hans Joachim Watzke has confirmed thatDortmund
will not make any purchases in the winter transfer window.
Dortmund bought Erling Haaland and Emre Can in January last year and strengthened their squad for the rest of the season. Haaland has had an excellent performance in this team and has recorded great statistics. The Coronavirus outbreak has put the clubs under financial pressure, and now the Dortmund CEO has confirmed that they will not have a new purchase in the winter.
He told Funke Group:
We are in the middle of the Corona pandemic with the resulting revenue losses over a long period of time. The coming transfer winter as such is hardly going to take place with us against this background
Watzke then addressed the situation of his team in all three competitions and said:
In the Bundesliga, we are four points short of a two-point average, which should be our aim. In the DFB Pokal, we have not yet faced the most difficult tasks, but we have made it to the round of 16 without any problems. In Braunschweig, I never had the feeling that we could be eliminated. In the Champions League, 13 points are perfectly fine
