Magazine honours Dortmund's Zorc

German football magazine 11Freunde has named Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc its Manager of the Year for the second season in succession.

Dortmund reached the Champions League final at Wembley last season, and his achievement drew praise from Horst Held, manager of arch-rivals Schalke, who told the magazine his colleague "does a super job".

He said he and Zorc got along well, adding: "We are roughly the same age and know each other from the time when we were footballers.

"We have respect for each other and I can't say anything bad about Michael - except that he is working for the wrong club.

"Everybody has his own philosophy, and every club has different conditions, but it is undisputable that Borussia have done a lot of things better than us in recent years."

But Zorc will face a tough challenge to make it a hat-trick, with the Bundesliga runners-up and coach Jurgen Klopp having so far endured a frustrating summer.

Only Sokratis Papastathopoulos has joined them, coming in from Werder Bremen for €9 million, and they have not yet been able to replace Mario Gotze, who joined Treble-winners Bayern Munich for €37 million - the club key striker Robert Lewandowski also wants to join.

Chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said the fact rival clubs knew Dortmund had a large transfer budget after the Champions League final and the sale of Gotze was not helping their efforts to overhaul the squad.

"The clubs we talk to know pretty well what we are able to do," he told Sport1. "But we also know what we are willing to do and what we won't do.

"Mario [Gotze] is one of the biggest talents in the world of football, but we will do our best to strengthen our squad in his [attacking midfield] position."
