Dortmund look to start Tuchel era with Europa League qualifier

New Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel, right, has already shown a possession-based style more patient than predecessor Jurgen Klopp's 'heavy metal' approach.

While other Bundesliga teams are still in the middle of preparing for their upcoming campaigns, the preseason is already over for Borussia Dortmund. Their first official match is on Thursday in Austria, where they will go up against Wolfsberger AC in the third round of Europa League qualification.

After seven years of Jurgen Klopp's reign at the helm, the focus is on their new coach. What will Thomas Tuchel come up with to ensure that BVB challenge again for the Champions League spots from the Bundesliga?


Dortmund with work to do before early season Europa start

Will Liverpool sign Marco Reus? Will Louis van Gaal find trouble integrating the new players to his squad? All this and more on Extra Time!

Borussia Dortmund have completed their Asian tour and have arrived in Bad Ragaz, a little village in Switzerland to continue their season preparation.

Just less than two weeks are left for Thomas Tuchel to prepare his team until the season starts at the end of July with the first leg of the third qualification round of the Europa League. The early start to the season is shaping up to be heavy burden for the detail-oriented coach, who still has a long catalogue of issues that need to be fixed....

Borussia Dortmund will visit SE Asia every two years, says CEO Watzke

Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke is planning to bring the first team every two years to Southeast Asia.

Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke is the exact antithesis of a modern management guru even though his achievement in turning around a club hurtling towards bankruptcy in 2005 to a profitable and highly successful one a decade later is second to none.

Instead of jargon and number crunching, you get all the attributes mentioned in Dortmund's brand positioning document -- sincerity, passion, rootedness, intensity, directness and, above all, true love (echte liebe) of his side's...

Borussia Dortmund's Asia tour reveals first glimpse of Thomas Tuchel's plans

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe delivers the latest transfer news on Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez and suggests that Borussia Dortmund's Ciro Immobile has a better chance of joining Sevilla than the Mexico international.

On Saturday, Borussia Dortmund returned home from their week-long tour of Asia, where they promoted their brand in Japan, Malaysia and Singapore. In terms of marketing, it was a fruitful journey to conquer new revenue streams on a different continent. The reception the club received at the airports, where thousands of fans feverishly awaited BVB's arrival, was enormous.

The highlights of the trip were the two friendly matches against J-League's Kawasaki Frontale and Malaysia Premier League champions...

Intense Dortmund show they are a class apart from MSL champions JDT

New Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel deployed an attack-minded formation in their 6-1 win against JDT.

JOHOR BAHRU - Eight-time German champions Borussia Dortmund made it two convincing wins in a row on their Asian tour after crushing 2014 Malaysia Super League (MSL) winners Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) 6-1 on Thursday night. 

Here are three observations to come out of the game at Larkin Stadium, just over the Causeway from Singapore:

1. Asian business trip, not vacation

Tuesday night's 6-0 trouncing of J.League outfit Kawasaki Frontale was the first indication of how seriously Borussia Dortmund...

Dortmund could reap big reward from additional Gundogan season

ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik and Alexis Nunes weigh in on Ilkay Gundogan's decision to extend his contract with Borussia Dortmund.

Ilkay Gundogan has added a year to his current deal at Borussia Dortmund. While his new contract -- now valid until 2017 -- kills off speculation for this current transfer window, his long-term commitment to the club is still cloudy. The extension is a decision that has provoked a lot of controversy among BVB fans, but it still might pay off for the club and the player in the long run. Some are happy to see the central midfielder play for another season for the club, while some are fed up with...
