Shock as Borussia Dortmund announce new manager

After deals with main targets Cesare Prandelli and Fatih Terim looked to be completed Der BvB board have thrown us curve ball appointing Mathias Iconic as their Head coach for the forthcoming 2014/15 Bundesliga season.

The training ground of Borussia Dortmund smelt like paint drying and as I wandered round I could feel the nostalgic sense of when I was on that pitch practising free-kicks and penalties. But before I get to reminiscent Director of football Michael Zorc led me down the corridor to the my new office in there to greet me were Mats Hummels and Roman Weidenfeller (my newly installed captain and my vice-captain) along with my assistant manager Zeljko Buvac.

'Welcome home Mat' said Zorc

And I thought 'This is the start of something special.'

After twenty minutes of signing enitials and reading the contract I signed on for Dortmund, my wage would be £70,000 until July 1st 2015 with a potential bonus of £350,000 for winning the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE.

Horn deal on the cards?

Koln goalkeeper Timo Horn is rumoured to be completing a move to Borussia Dortmund it is believed the 21 year old is viewed as a long term replacement for Roman Weidenfeller. Iconic has started the speculation by hinting at a bid for some younge goalkeepers stating 'Roman is a great goalkeeper nd a fantastic pro, but at 33 what can it hurt to look around for some long term goalkeepers for the future.'

Neither Holn nor Weidenfeller have responded to any press speculation but gossips say a move is days away.
I like Timo Horn he is a good GK, keep up the work
Why sell Schmelzer and Großkreutz?! :((

Because they are not fitting into my plans Schmelzer is limited full back and I want an attacking full back (Erik Durm) Großkreutz I have never liked in Football Manager (as much as I love him in real life) Neal I appreciate the feedback.
