BERLIN (AFP) – French striker Anthony Modeste thanked Dortmund manager Edin Terzic after his first-half goal gave his side a narrow 1-0 win away at Hertha Berlin early yesterday.
Modeste headed in a cross from Salih Ozcan in the 32nd minute to put Dortmund in command.
Modeste, who is known for his theatrical celebrations which often involve dancing and even props, ran emotionally to Terzic and embraced him after scoring.
Speaking to Sky after the match, Modeste credited his winner to Terzic, saying, “I’m so glad to score my first goal.
“It took its time, but it was really important. I’ve copped so much, but the manager was always there for me.”
