Last quote by Hans-Joachim Watzke

Hans-Joachim Watzke quotes

May 30 2017

This squad has achieved something historic. And we have to thank our coach Thomas Tuchel and his staff, that's clear.feedback

May 30 2017

Taking your responsibilities is not only about the results, that's not different at Dortmund from any other sporting club. It's about basic values such as trust, respect, communication, authenticity, identification. It's about loyalty.feedback

May 30 2017

For me, it's important to let you know, that it wasn't a question of whether you could drink a beer together or play cards together or not. If we simplify these things, we would be bad decision-makers. In my opinion, club representatives and the coach don't need to be close friends.feedback

May 30 2017

In the current situation, we did not see any starting point for a successful work for the future. That's why we decided not to continue with this coaching staff beyond the season 2016-17.feedback

May 30 2017

There's some criticism from fans that we have parted ways with Tuchel. We can understand that as a club. BVB was successful with Tuchel for two years in which we have reached our goals.feedback

May 30 2017

But we, sporting director Michael Zorc and me, have worn ourselves out in dealing with the coaching staff.feedback

May 30 2017

The special relationship, that we, Zorc and I, had with Jurgen Klopp wasn't the standard for the relationship with Thomas Tuchel - and it won't be for any future Dortmund coach.feedback

May 06 2017 - Borussia Dortmund bus attack

As always with talks, things are not only about the sporting aspect, but also about strategy, communication and trust. The final table is like a testimony, and the score is certainly better if you are third, instead of fourth. I will also assess everything relating to the terrorist attack, of course, against the background of what we have discussed intimately with each other and what was possible.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Borussia Dortmund bus attack

The investigations by prosecutors and police have been intensive and with high priority. We would like to thank them for that massively and hope that with this suspect the responsible person for that horrible attack on our team and staff has been found. We received incredible support over the last days and that gave us much strength.feedback

Apr 15 2017 - UEFA

I briefly considered whether we should leave the competition completely. But then it would have been a victory for the perpetrators. If a player isn't able to play then he can tell the coach, and I also said that there would have been complete understanding and every form of support from us. The players have the opportunity to deal with the psychological side of the attack with experts and to get any help from us. They did not want to hurt Borussia Dortmund explicitly. It was an attack on Germany.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Monsanto

I have just told the team in the dressing room to show society that we will not bow to terror. We want to show that terror and hatred can never determine our actions. And of course we play for Marc Bartra, who wants to see his team win.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Borussia Dortmund bus attack

I have just told the team in the dressing room to show society that we will not bow to terror. This is perhaps the most difficult situation we have had in the past decades and I am sure that we will show ourselves as BVB as strong and united as never before. We do not just play for us. We play for everyone. No matter whether Borussian, Bavarian or Schalke. We want to show that terror and hatred can never determine our actions. And of course we play for Marc Bartra, who wants to see his team win. We ask all BVB fans to support our team with full energy for 90 minutes.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Borussia Dortmund bus attack

The most important thing is that democracy and our basic freedoms are being scrutinised, and we need to strengthen them. The players are making a worldwide contribution.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Borussia Dortmund bus attack

We're not just playing tonight for ourselves. We're playing for everyone!feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Borussia Dortmund bus attack

Bartra was injured, on his hand and his arm, but nothing that would be life-threatening. The team is in complete shock. Our task is to process this experience, because the match is taking place in less than 24 hours. That's our job.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Monsanto

We want to show that terror and hatred can never dictate our actions. This is perhaps the most difficult situation that we have faced in the past decades. We do not just play for us today. We play for everyone - no matter whether Borussia, Bayer or Schalke supporters. And of course we play for Marc Bartra, who wants to see his team win.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Borussia Dortmund bus attack

The team and the coaches are of course in shock. We must now channel it in some way. It will not be easy to get it out of our mind. In such a crisis situation, all of Borussia Dortmund will pull together. I think the team will feel it tomorrow. When the squad moved from the hotel parking lot to Wittbrauckerstrasse, three explosive devices were triggered there. Marc Bartra has been taken to the hospital. He hurt himself on the hand. We then contacted the security delegates and colleagues from Monaco. The game will be played tomorrow at 18:45CET. The tickets remain valid.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Borussia Dortmund bus attack

There was an explosive strike in the immediate vicinity of the hotel exit.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Borussia Dortmund bus attack

The team is totally shocked, that's clear. It's our task now to digest this somehow because it's only 24 hours before we have to play. That's our job.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Borussia Dortmund bus attack

Overall, I have to express a huge compliment to our fans, who have carried it very well, objectively, reasonably and solidly.feedback

Apr 09 2017

I think he will stay with us. But if Real Madrid or Barcelona come with a big offer, then we have to discuss it. We will not sell him to the Bavarians. I do not see that we have irreconcilable differences and there is no thunderstorm.feedback

Mar 22 2017

As of yet, I have no information that suggests Auba will leave Dortmund. If we were to reach that point, we will sit down and listen to each other, we have a lot of respect for Auba and he deserves that. But there are not an awful lot of clubs that would be a step forward for him in my opinion. Either way, he will only leave Dortmund for an outrageous transfer fee if he does move. That being said, we hope that he will stay.feedback

Mar 21 2017

We have very high hopes that he will fully recover and get back to his best. He is doing alright if you bear the circumstances in mind. But it is only logical that an ambitious professional like Mario is not feeling great when you are missing the decisive stages of the season and big games against Bayern. I do not think the high expectations got the better of him. Mario is a very calm guy. He has shown for a number of years that he can deal with high expectations. That was not the problem.feedback

Mar 11 2017

We are not thinking about a transfer at all at this stage.feedback

Mar 11 2017

Ever since Auba joined Dortmund, I have never had the feeling that he is planning to leave this club. And I think he realises that we are building a great team again here. We know what he means to us, but he also knows what we can do for him.feedback

Feb 04 2017

I can't verify it yet. But if it was an advertisement partner we will talk with him and it will be difficult for him.feedback
