In an unexpected turn of events, Borussia Dortmund fired manager Marco Rose after just one season on the job.
Rose’s side finished eighth in the league, eight points behind league winner Bayern Munich, and the club and coach allegedly agreed to split ways.

Rose’s version of Borussia Dortmund finished with 22 victories, 3 draws, and 9 defeats. Furthermore, Dortmund scored 85 goals but conceded 53, due to poor defensive performance this season:
Rose’s team also suffered multiple crucial injuries during the season, yet they were ousted from the Champions League in the group round. Things aren’t going to get any simpler with Erling Haaland possibly departing the club this summer. Dortmund, on the other hand, has signed Bayern Munich’s Niklas Süle and SC Freiburg’s Nico Schlotterbeck.
The pair of German internationals should help fortify the Black and Yellows’ backline for whoever takes over as manager.
