Bundesliga: Terzik: With Modest at Freiburg - FC understanding of frustration

New signing Anthony Modest is expected to make his debut for Borussia Dortmund at SC Freiburg on Friday.

“He’s full of juice and looks very healthy, very fit and very hungry. So he is a great choice for Fridays,” said BVB coach Edin Terzik.

The 34-year-old was signed by Dortmund as a replacement for Sebastian Haller from league rivals 1. FC Colon, who suffered from a testicular tumour. As the looming transfer became public on the Sunday before Cologne’s first game of the season against FC Schalke 04, FC coach Stefan Baumgart decided not to sign Modest and expressed his anger at the goalscorer’s departure.

“I can understand the disappointment,” Terzik said. Of course “losing such a top guy in early August” was not cool. However, the Westphalia coach insisted that BVB did not have the impulse to leak the transfer on Sunday. The melody also has to be understood. “He can play in the Champions League with us, and it’s not a given to play for the title again,” Terzik said.

Modest’s clear hope is to score goals. “We hope that he will show us the things that he has shown very impressively in the Bundesliga in recent years,” said Terzik.
