So yes: According to emerging rumors, Lucien Favre is now to succeed the outgoing Adi Hütter at Borussia Mönchengladbach. The coaching position at Bökelberg only became vacant last Saturday.

Old acquaintance: The Austrian Adi Hütter came to Borussia Mönchengladbach a year ago with great expectations, but it never really worked out. In the end there was a disappointing season with tenth place in no man’s land in the table. As a result, they parted ways on the last game of the 2021/2022 season. Hütter had to resign. The successor is an old friend: Lucien Favre. This is reported by “Bild”.

Return to Borussia: Favre still has time to get used to his new, old job before the start of the pre-season on June 26th. From 2011 to 2015, the Swiss coached Borussia, saved them from the relegation battle and led the team to the Champions League. After a devastating false start in the 2015/2016 season with five bankruptcies in five games, the sensitive coach gave up – although no one from the top management had asked for this. He left behind scorched earth.

Good reputation: The cunning tactician Favre still enjoys a very good reputation among Borussia fans – and manager Max Eberl, who was once not very amused by Favre’s hasty withdrawal, is finally no longer on board. The way back is clear for Favre, who is currently without a club and worked for Borussia Dortmund from 2018 to 2020.
