Borussia Dortmund's director of sports Michael Zorc trusts the BVB will "improve significantly" through the second half of the season
The Black and Yellows sits on the fifth spot in Bundesliga standings, after firing their head manager Lucien Favre following a 5-1 home thrashing by Stuttgart on December 12.
Edin Terzic, who was Favre's first assistant, is presently in control and the 38-year-old has earned a few successes in his initial three games in command. It is this sort of performance that Zorc affirms will proceed.
"I expect the team to improve significantly. No one here at Borussia Dortmund is satisfied with fifth in the table. Champions League qualification is always our goal and we have to achieve that at the end of the season," he told the club’s official website.
By the by, the defeat to Union Berlin disappointed Zorc, who along these lines advised the players to recall their obligations towards the Die Borussen.
“After the Union Berlin game, I was especially annoyed because we’d lost two games in relatively quick succession from four corners,” he said.
“It’s a bit of an exaggeration, but four corners cost us six points, and a team with the quality we haven’t to have can’t let that happen.
“Ok, we were caught out by Cologne, but you can’t let that happen again three or four weeks later, especially when everyone knows Union Berlin are strong from set pieces.
“Overall, we aren’t happy with how we’ve been doing in the Bundesliga over the last few months. I think we’ve done well in the Champions League, and we deserved to get through to the next stage as group winners. We’ve done our job in the cup, but we’re not doing our job in the league, including the targets set by the players before the season.”
Dortmund will be back on Bundesliga run on Sunday with a home match against Wolfsburg, while they travel to confront RB Leipzig seven days after and these two face-offs are vital turns for the club to prevail in this season.
