He said, “A few weeks ago, I made a personal request to Michael Zorc to stay with us for an extra year. We at BVB are all happy and thankful that he has complied with our request. Michael is a true Borusse and, as such, he was prepared to continue overseeing sporting matters at a time that is challenging for us all, and during which it is difficult to plan and tough to predict developments. This continuity will do us good.”
Zorc was not expected to sign a contract extension, however, owing to the Coronavirus pandemic, things have gotten tougher at the club on an operational and financial level. Hence, they decided to stick to what they are comfortable with. Zorc said, “We are facing a time that will be marked by great challenges. It goes without saying that I will stay on board my club in such a phase and make my contribution in order to best position Borussia Dortmund together.“
