Lucien Favre: Trainer talent (32) remains an absolute candidate as successor at BVB
Update May 27, 6:15 am: Lothar Matthäus brought him into the game immediately after the BVB defeat in the Bundesliga cracker as successor to Lucien Favre : will Niko Kovac soon be on the command bridge of Westphalia? According to the picture , there has already been contact with the former FC Bayern coach in recent months.
It does not seem entirely clear whether Kovac's game philosophy actually fits Borussia's current squad. Another hot candidate on the German coach market apparently remains the ideal candidate. The BVB makers had tried in vain in the past for Julian Nagelsmann. The 32-year-old's commitment to the new season seems unrealistic. Nagelsmann's contract in Leipzig runs until 2023.

Lucien Favre: Does he throw away at Borussia Dortmund?
"It's easy to say after the game. Can takes a few days, did only one training session with the team, then played in Wolfsburg. Jadon was not ready now. He can play more than half time, but 90 minutes will be difficult, ”said Favre , arguing eagerly. Can obviously saw the whole thing a little differently.
"I hoped it," said the German international at Sky on a starting line-up: "The coach decided so, you have to accept that. If we win, everything is correct. Now you can discuss it. "
Are Favre 's doubts about his work too much? Will he throw up soon?
