Why is this taking so long? Two weeks ago, Adi Hütter was released at Borussia Mönchengladbach, a week later Lucien Favre’s sensational return was almost certain – but since then the foals have not reported any completion. Apparently a desert offer is to blame for the delay.

Offer from Saudi Arabia: The planned coup to bring former Gladbach coach Lucien Favre (64) back to the Borussia coaching bench threatens to fail on the home straight. According to “Sport-Bild” information, the absolute dream candidate of Mönchengladbach has a highly paid contract offer from Saudi Arabia.

Riyadh instead of Gladbach? The first division club Al-Nassr Riyadh is said to offer the Swiss coach an annual salary of five million euros for his services – far more than Borussia can put on the table. For comparison: With Adi Hütter, the traditional club went to its pain limit with a salary of three million euros per year.

Favre ponders: According to reports, according to “Sport-Bild”, Favre should seriously consider accepting the immoral offer from Saudi Arabia. The football expert would simply put money ahead of sporting ambitions. For Gladbach, Favre’s cancellation would be a major setback because they had already committed themselves to the Swiss.
