Borussia Dortmund have reportedly sacked their manager, Marco Rose, and he is set to leave the club, NEWSCREEDS Media has gathered.

The German managed just one season in charge with Dortmund, having joined last year from Borussia Monchengladbach.

But after securing the club only a second-placed finish behind Bundesliga kings Bayern Munich, Rose has been fired.

Dortmund tweeted: “BVB and Coach Marco Rose end their relationship.

“Following an intensive season analysis on Thursday, including Rose, Watzke, Zorc, Kehl, and Sammer, the club has decided to move forward, and wishes Marco Rose the best of luck in his next opportunity.”

Dortmund failed to put up a serious fight against Bayern, who clinched their tenth consecutive league title by eight points.

That was despite the heroics of strike sensation Erling Haaland, 21, who managed 22 goals in 24 league games.

But the Norwegian also follows Rose out the door having agreed a deal to join Manchester City at the start of next season.

To say his goodbyes, Haaland shelled out half a million pounds on luxury watches for his Dortmund team-mates and staff.

According to Bild, he purchased 33 Rolex’s for all the players – worth around £12,730 each.

And then he also bought at least another 20 OMEGA watches for the backroom staff – a piece worth around £4,128 each.

“Thank you for the great support, you will always have a place in my heart. All the best to you all.”
