Lucien Favre Sacked At Borussia Dortmund 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Dec 13, 2020 5:43 pm

Borussia Dortmund sacked Lucien Favre following a 5-1 home loss to Stuttgart.

\"We are all grateful to Lucien Favre for his excellent work over the past two-and-a-half year, in which he and his team won two runner-up championships. As a professional and as a person, Lucien Favre is beyond any doubt,\" said Dortmund chairman Hans-Joachim Watzke.

The side have just one point from their last three matches, have lost their last three home matches, and are currently five points behind Bayern Munich on the league table.

Favre was hired as manager in the summer of 2018.

Edin Terzic, Otto Addo and Sebastian Geppert will take over as manager.

Geez Louise, that's tough.

One rough patch and you're out. The Bundesliga is probably the best in the world at the moment (La Liga fan here), and Favre was competing at the highest level with a feeder club. I don't know much about him personally, but professionally I respect his acumen.

It's weird to see the phrase Favre sacked - and having nothing to do with Brett Favre or American Football.
so i made a deal with myself. this is the year i make my mark.
