Dortmund extend contract with sporting director Zorc

Berlin (Germany) June 25: Borussia Dortmund have penned an one-year extension with sporting director Michael Zorc until 2022, the Bundesliga club confirmed on Wednesday.
The 57-year-old, who has been at BVB in various capacities since 1978 and has overseen the club's sporting affairs since 1998, said: "We're facing a period that will present significant challenges. It goes without saying that, during such a phase, I will stand by my club and make my contribution as we strive to put Borussia Dortmund on the best possible footing together."
The club's chief executive officer Hans-Joachim Watzke 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."
Following the contract extension, Watzke announced his intention "to speak with Sebastian Kehl about extending our cooperation soon too".
Kehl, who captained BVB for many years, has been head of the club's player department since 2018.
