Edin Terzic has revealed his desire to stick around at Borussia Dortmund despite the speculation linking him with the Tottenham job.
Terzic served as assistant manager to Lucien Favre at Dortmund for over two years before being appointed interim boss after the Swiss manager’s sacking back in December.
The 38-year-old has outperformed expectations this season, leading the club to the DFB-Pokal title, a third-place finish in the Bundesliga and the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
However, Terzic will not continue as the club’s head coach, with Marco Rose set to take over the reins at Signal Iduna Park.
Some reports from Germany claimed that Tottenham are ‘intensively considering’ appointing the young coach on the back of his impressive stint at the helm at Dortmund.
However, Terzic has now admitted that he would be happy to stay with the Bundesliga giants as a part of Rose’s coaching staff if he was offered the opportunity to do so.
He told Goal: “We have clearly expressed the wish that my path can continue here with pleasure.
“We will make the best decision in the interests of the club. At some point, you will find out (what I will do next).
“I will go home with full enjoyment. I will enjoy that completely for the next few days.”
