Dortmund Flattered By Interest

Friday 24 May:

A Borussia Dortmund source today admitted that they would be foolish not to consider someone of Gray Surman’s calibre for the manager job and that they would be stepping up their interest should Surman indicate a willingness to enter discussions. The source did concede, however, that nothing had yet been set in stone and there is some way to go before finalising things.

It is understood representatives of both parties will meet over the weekend and a decision will made on Monday. Surman is manager at Wigan Athletic, and the Canadian guided them to 6th place in the Premier League in his first season of management.
