BVB says goodbye to Zorc, Haaland and Co.
Borussia Dortmund has emotionally adopted his club icon Michael Zorc and his top striker Erling Haaland.
The Michael Zorcs director Zorc received a huge choreography in the south grandstand after 44 years of BVB - 20 as a player and 24 in management and was celebrated as stormy as the long -time player Marcel Schmelzer, who ends his career. Haaland was previously said goodbye to Manchester City without greater melancholy.
Zorc is a legend of Dortmund. "He made the greatest career of all Borussia," managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke told the "SID". "44 years in his city, in his club, more is not possible." Nobody has completed Bundesliga games (463) for BVB and won more derbies against Schalke 04 (10) as Zorc, who won the trophy, the championship, the Champions League and the World Cup.
In 1998 he moved to the official level and lived a second life in black and yellow. He is considered a man with a magical eye for talents and transfers, but his biggest coup was the risky commitment of coach Jürgen Klopp 2008. Zorc now hands over the office to his successor Sebastian Kehl.
Schmelzer, Haaland and Co. leave the BVB
Schmelzer was in the club for 17 years, played 258 Bundesliga games, was captain. The left -back became champion and three times the cup winner.
After two and a half spectacular years, Haaland goes for the fixed transfer of 75 million euros.
The goalkeeper Roman Bürki and Marwin Hitz as well as Axel Witsel and Dan-Axel Zagadou were also adopted.
