Dortmund chief Zorc and club CEO Watzke have sent across a strong message to the German club Dortmund.
Borussia Dortmund were humiliated against Bayern Munich last weekend and the club has now been warned to either turn up at Barcelona with their A-game.
“Obviously the topic will be discussed publicly because our situation is more than unsatisfactory,” Zorc told Funke Sport.
“Of course we will analyse that very intensively. But we are going to the match in Barcelona with Lucien Favre and we expect to see a significant increase in performance there.
“We need a performance. We finally need a good performance on the pitch so you can look forward.”
Watzke had kind but dangerous words for the coach and a stern warning for the players.
“Dear Lucien, you still have our trust,” Watzke said at the club’s AGM. “But in the end football is always defined by results.
“We all hope you and the team are able to turn this around. You have all the support we can give you.”
Directing a stern message towards the club’s players, he added: “Pull yourselves together and play like it is expected from Borussia Dortmund. You as a team must know that only words are not enough.
“It is your duty to let them be followed by actions.”
Will they be able to overpower the mighty Barcelona?
