After the dismissal of coach Marco Rose at Borussia Dortmund, ex-Bayern professional Stefan Effenberg asks a fundamental question: Does BVB keep hiring the wrong coaches?

The question: Stefan Effenberg (53) asks himself in his column for “T-Online” what actually goes wrong when looking for a trainer at BVB. The point of departure for the question is coach Marco Rose’s expulsion from BVB a few days ago. Effenberg: “Personally, I’m wondering what criteria they actually use when looking for a coach in Dortmund.”

The answer: Effenberg’s assumption: “It’s obviously more about sympathy than points for the people of Dortmund. At least that’s the impression you get.” The former national player justifies this thesis with the eternal longing for a Klopp successor who inspired the fans and was able to electrify a stadium.

Human level: Effenberg’s reasoning: Lucien Favre did not win any major titles, “but scored more points per game (2.01) than Jürgen Klopp (1.9) and Ottmar Hitzfeld (1.86). Nevertheless, the bosses constantly remember Klopp. Tuchel was also successful, but it wasn’t right for him on a human level either.”
