Ex-football player and now wife of Borussia Dortmund coach — meet Cora Velm


Head coach of “Borus­sia” One Terz­ic is a very impor­tant per­son in the Dort­mund club at the moment. Under the lead­er­ship of the coach, the club reached the final of the Cham­pi­ons League for the first time in 11 years, where they will meet the win­ner of the pair “Real” — “Bavaria”.

“We could not have had a bet­ter son-in-law. It makes us proud to be him. Not because he is now the head coach Borus­sia Dort­mund. He is just super social, help­ful and a real­ly great per­son,” says Klaus Velm about Edin Terzych in an inter­view wa.de.

Edin Terzych has been mar­ried since August 3, 2013. Wed­ding with wife Cory Velm was a social affair, at least in and around Bergka­men: a cel­e­bra­to­ry wed­ding at Nord­kirchen Cas­tle, fol­lowed by a par­ty at Kolp­ing Hall in Werne.

Velm, now 40, and Terz­ic, 41, met and fell in love while study­ing at the Ruhr Uni­ver­si­ty in Bochum. Spe­cial­iza­tion: Sports sci­ence.

“He liked to be at our house a lot,” says Klaus Velm. “He said: you always have some­thing deli­cious.” But it was not only thanks to Cora’s moth­er, — says his wife’s father with pride, — because “we cook togeth­er.”

Rünte was also the long-time home of Edin Terz­ic, who played 188 games as a foot­baller in the top and region­al leagues — most recent­ly with BV Klop­pen­burg. “When he moved from there to Dort­mund, we built an apart­ment in our house for the two of them,” says Klaus Velm.

Cora Velm also played foot­ball for a long time. The wife of the cur­rent head coach of the Dort­mund club played for Bochum as a mid­field­er.

Klaus Velm worked as a super­vi­sor at Borus­sia D U16 while Terz­ic worked there as a coach. Soon after that, an offer came from Istan­bul Besik­tas. Head coach Slaven Bylich want­ed to see him as his assis­tant.

Edin agreed, and a month before the wed­ding, his whole life turned upside down. “Cora was in a reha­bil­i­ta­tion facil­i­ty in Bochum. She always worked for about 14 days and then flew to Istan­bul,” says Klaus Velm, who stayed with Borus­si­a’s juniors as a super­vi­sor.

The cou­ple lived in a long-dis­tance rela­tion­ship until June 2015, when Terz­ic fol­lowed his head coach to West Ham, where he worked in the Pre­mier League and Europa League. “The two of them got a flat in Lon­don and we packed the van to the brim and drove there with their stuff. My daugh­ter was only six weeks old at the time,” recalls Klaus Velm. In Novem­ber 2017, Terzych and Bylich final­ly broke up — the fam­i­ly returned home to North Rhine-West­phalia.

Now Terzych plays for Borus­sia, and the cou­ple lives hap­pi­ly in Dort­mund and rais­es two daugh­ters.
