Julian Brandt by runner -up Borussia Dortmund did not see the separation of coach Marco Rose come. The national player apparently caught the out of the coach completely on the wrong foot.

“I was in shock for ten minutes because I didn’t know anything about it and didn’t stand in the room. A buddy sent me a screenshot and I thought that was from the postillon,” said the 26-year-old in podcast kicker meets DAZN.

“In the end, the fast pace of football is like that and it is not my job that is to evaluate it. But I was already surprised,” the offensive player continued. “I already had the feeling that it is a long -term story and that you give him the time to build something.” The BVB surprisingly announced the separation from Rose on Friday.

Brandt hopes under the new and old coach Edin Terzic to continue his development of the past season. Under Rose, Brandt fought his way back to the national team, missed only three games in the Bundesliga and scored nine goals and posted eight assists.
