Former BVB master trainer Ottmar Hitzfeld has criticized Lucien Favre’s dismissal from his ex-club Borussia Dortmund. “I am sorry they did not give him the opportunity to continue,” Hitzfeld told Swiss newspaper Blick. “I am confident that Dortmund would have been Bayern’s toughest opponent during the season with him.”
The dismissal, said the 71-year-old, was “not justified, especially since the Champions League was the first in the group to reach the eighth finals. I’m surprised Dortmund started under pressure from the public. It would have been better, anyway. to the end. to stay cool of the year. To me the procedure seems like a result. “
Hitzfeld: So “the title can’t be the goal”
Hitzfeld apparently has problems with the expectations of the Westphalia, with whom he twice became German champion and 1997 Champions League winner. “If you have a young team like Dortmund and you promote talent, you can’t feel like you’re winning at the same time,” he said, “with this strategy, the title can’t be the goal. Especially since BVB, unlike. Bayern., The best players were then sold again and again. “
