, there have been concerns about

ability to fill the young star’s place in the team, but the club’s new head coach insists that although his move will leave a void in the squad although they will find a way to make everything work.

"Jadon's qualities are unpredictable. Every coach likes to have a player like Jadon Sancho on his team,"

Rose said at his introductory news conference on Thursday.

"We knew there was a chance Jadon wouldn't be here next season. We'll try to replace him and find solutions. We see opportunities in repositioning ourselves in certain areas."

The new boss has been focusing on the team’s defense instead of worrying about scoring goals as they see themselves only behind Bayern Munich in the number of goals scored in the Bundesliga, so the new boss is hoping to improve his team’s defensive structure.

"BVB conceded too many goals last season. We will tackle that,"

he said.

"We want to stabilize the defense without neglecting other aspects of our game.

"We have to be flexible and play different ways. We want to master three at the back and four. The diamond is an interesting system, too.

"What matters is where the boys feel comfortable. We have to play the type of football that people here can identify with.

"The way we want to play is already clear in my head. It then depends on which players you have in the squad and the basic structure also depends on it."

The new boss has been asked about Erling Haaland’s progress in the past 18 months, and he insists that he isn’t surprised by the improvements that the Norway international has been showing.

Asked how he would describe the past 18 months for Haaland, Rose said:

"Like a rocket! But I have to say it didn't surprise me.

"We have spoken on the phone and exchanged messages. He is not in training yet and has another few days off."
