Supporters of Borussia Dortmund protest against the management in Dortmund.
Supporters of Borussia Dortmund protest against the management of the club before their German Bundesliga soccer match against VfL Bochum in Dortmund February 12, 2005. Chief Executive Gerd Niebaum has resigned earlier this week, bowing to pressure from investors and fans after the club posted record losses and debts. In a surprise statement, Borussia said Niebaum wanted to end the debate around his position, which has affected the club's financial and sporting performance. The club's second chief executive, Michael Meier, will take over Niebaum's responsibilities for the time being, the club said. REUTERS/Ina Fassbender INA/JOH
