After the 1: 5 shame against VfB Stuttgart, Borussia Dortmund said goodbye to head coach Lucien Favre. The German runner-up confirmed that on Sunday.
Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund has split from head coach Lucien Favre. The German runner-up confirmed that on Sunday. BVB’s sports management announced the Swiss’s resignation, just one day after the 1: 5 shame against newly promoted VfB Stuttgart. Previous assistant coach Edin Terzic will take over the team on Tuesday (8.30pm / in the live ticker on Chillreport) in the game against Werder Bremen – and will surprisingly take care of them until the end of the season.
“Sky Sport” reporter Jesco von Eichmann told the Sky Sport News channel that the players are currently meeting at the training ground in Dortmund-Brackel. There, the professionals should be informed about the end of their previous trainer.
Favre came to BVB in the summer of 2018 from the French first division team OGC Nice. With 2.01 points per game, the former Gladbach coach has the best points average in the history of all Dortmund coaches, but it was not enough to win a title during his tenure. Favre’s contract with the Ruhrpottklub ran until the summer of 2021.
