Borussia Dortmund confirmed Terzic’s exit on Thursday, a decision shadowed by reports of a heated altercation with veteran defender Mats Hummels just before the Champions League final. The alleged confrontation, which turned violent, is said to have stemmed from Hummels’ public criticism of Terzic’s tactics during Dortmund’s challenging Bundesliga season.

In a poignant Instagram post, Sancho shared a photo of Terzic consoling him after Dortmund’s 2-0 loss to Real Madrid at Wembley. “Thank you for trusting me, forever grateful,” wrote Sancho. “I wish you the best of luck on your next chapter @edinterzic11.”

Sancho, who joined Dortmund on loan in January after a fallout with Manchester United, became a crucial player in their journey to the Champions League final. He made 21 appearances under Terzic, striving to revive his career after his exile from United, where he clashed with manager Erik ten Hag.

With Terzic’s departure, Sancho’s future hangs in the balance, especially as Manchester United have reportedly set a £40m price tag to transfer him permanently this summer.

The turmoil at Dortmund deepened as reports surfaced of a bitter dispute between Terzic and Hummels. According to Bild, Hummels lambasted Terzic’s defensive strategies during the season, leading to a clash so intense that it prompted discussions of “personal consequences” within the club. Hummels expressed his frustration with the team’s approach in critical matches, describing them as “submissive” and “inferior” in footballing terms.

In a statement, Borussia Dortmund acknowledged Terzic’s resignation: “Borussia Dortmund and coach Edin Terzic are going their separate ways. The 41-year-old, who won the DFB Cup with BVB in 2021 and reached the Champions League final in 2024, requested an immediate termination of his contract. Borussia Dortmund agreed to this request after joint discussions.”

Addressing the fans, Terzic expressed his sorrow: “Even though it is really hurting me right now, I want to tell you that I will be leaving BVB today. Leading this great club to a DFB Cup victory and a Champions League final has been a huge honour. After ten years with BVB, I feel it’s time for a new start with someone else on the sidelines.”

Hummels, whose contract with Dortmund is set to expire at the end of the month, is also expected to leave the club, marking an end to a turbulent chapter for Borussia Dortmund.

As Dortmund prepares for the future without Terzic, the echoes of this tumultuous period will undoubtedly influence their next steps in rebuilding and refocusing the team.
