Borussia Dortmund sack Rose after trophy-less season

Borussia Dortmund have sacked manager Marco Rose after a single season in charge.

The German coach helped the side to a second-placed finish behind giants Bayern Munich.

However, defeats in the Champions League, Europa League, and domestic cups sealed Rose's fate.

The club did not win a single trophy, and they will now be looking for a new manager.

A statement from Dortmund read: "Hans-Joachim Watzke, Michael Zorc and Sebastian Kehl would like to thank Marco Rose for the work he has done.

"His great commitment and the trusting discussions and wish him all the best for his private and sporting future. Rose's assistant trainer Alexander Zickler as well as Rene Maric and athletic trainer Patrick Eibenberger will also no longer work for BVB in the future. BVB would also like to thank them for the work they have done and their commitment during the 2021/22 season."

Chief executive Watzke added: "This day is not an easy one for all of us, because the mutual respect among us was, is and remains great. After a season that was unsatisfactory for many reasons, we had to recognise that we did not reach our maximum potential in many areas."
