The Borussia Dortmund has hartado of Lucien Favre and this Sunday have announced his dismissal like technician of the team germano. The Swiss carried two seasons and average at the head of the club, in which it won a Supercopa of Germany and was second in the Bundesliga so much in 2019 as in 2020. In Champions League had still less luck that in League and his were deleted in eighth of final both campaigns.

The abysmal last results of the Dortmund had to the ex of the Nice against the ropes, but the humillante 1-5 in front of the Stuttgart of this Saturday has been decisive for his dismissal. The Germans fell in the Signal Iduna Park by third consecutive duel in the domestic championship and did it by goleada. The terrible performance of the team was reason more than to spare to take this so definite decision.

As they are commenting in Germany, Edin Terzic, second trainer of the club 'negriamarillo', will commission to direct to the Borussia until final of course. The one of Menden will do charge of the team in the next parties and if all goes well and there is not a very negative series of results, will continue at least until the summer of 2021. With this change, the germanos expect reconducir the situation in Bundesliga, where are fifth to 5 points of the Bayern of Munich, leader.

It surprises that this decision so fulminante have arrived only a day before the draw of the League of Champions. The Dortmund classified for the eighth of final like first of his group, by what is a rival potential of the FC Barcelona. Remain without his trainer of face to this eliminatory could trastocar to the staff, that seemed to trust fully in Lucien Favre.

The defensive fragility of the Dortmund, worrisome

Nevertheless, after the goleada in front of the Stuttgart and remembering the toneless paper of the team in Europe so much in 2020 as in 2019, the directive has decided that the best is a change. The Swiss, although it had endowed to the team of big offensive mechanisms, had not done the same in defence, where the Borussia is a coladero in too many occasions. This defensive fragility will be what Terzic have to correct like first trainer.

With Erling Haaland, Jadon Sancho, Julian Brandt or Thorgan Hazard up, the Germans have speed, desborde, quality and a lot of gunpowder. But all this danger can remain in at all if backwards there is not a solid block and worked that it can counter to the rivals. This is precisely what wants the club, that expects to improve in League and can happen of the eighth of Champions once and for all.
