Former Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac is back in the Bundesliga, but we will touch on him in a second. First, let’s take a look at the recent hire of Edin Terzic by Borussia Dortmund. There are many who would argue that Terzic should have been offered the full-time job after an amazingly successful run as an interim manager to close off the 2020/21 season.
Dortmund hired Marco Rose, though, but that relationship flamed out after only one season. Finally, Terzic will now get his chance to prove himself as the squad’s boss:

“By now, people should know how important BVB is in my life. I would like to sincerely thank Aki Watzke, Michael Zorc, and Sebastian Kehl for their great trust and this great responsibility. We will give everything every day for the success of the club,” Terzic said.
As for Wolfsburg, they hired a familiar face in Kovac.

The anticipation of making a difference and being successful together with my coaching team in Wolfsburg is great, the team has enormous potential and the conditions for optimal and successful work are there,” Kovac said.
