Borussia are looking for new manager

Borussia Dortmund are seriously considering the dismissal of Lucien Favre and have already contacted with the candidates for the manager post.

Lucien Favre has been working at Borussia Dortmund since 2018. Before that, the Swiss managed native clubs, after that he worked and Hertha, Borussia Monchengladbach and French Nice. During his managerial activity at Signal Iduna Park the coach managed to win the German Super Cup with the Black-and-Yellows and by far this is his only achievement.

After a head-to-head encounter with Bayern, which Borussia lost 0:1, the manager’s chair has staggered. The Black-and-Yellows are seven points behind Rekordmeister six rounds before the end of the season. Considering Bayern’s strength, they will not lose this handicap. Therefore, the men from Dortmund should not hope for the trophy. Besides the BVB have already dropped out of the German cup and the Champions League.

Considering team results and poor defense, which has long been an Achilles heel of Borussia, the management is seriously considering a candidacy of another manager. One of the contenders for the post is Bayern and Eintracht former manager Niko Kovac, authoritative German edition Bild reports. According to the source’s information, club bosses have contacted the manager for the past few several months. And after the defeat to Bayern in the latest match, when the Black-and-Yellows put all their effort, Haland injured himself, but they did not achieve a result.

Kovacs did a great job building Eintracht. Thanks to the gradual methodical approach and the game of three central defenders, the team defended very well and barely conceded. This helped the Eagles reach the semi-finals of the Europa League, where they lost only to Chelsea in the penalty shootout. Borussia have been playing a decent amount of time with three central defenders and their main trump card is a quick transition from defense to attack thanks to laterals and wingers. Therefore, Kovas can really become that gear that the current Borussia lack.
