Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund have reportedly sacked manager Lucien Favre, according to BILD.
Favre, 63, took charge of the Black and Yellows back in May 2018 after taking a two-year career break.
Since taking the Signal Iduna Park hot-seat, Favre’s time at the helm has been a rocky one.
Following their crushing 5-1 defeat to Stuttgart on Saturday, Borussia Dortmund currently sit fifth in the Bundesliga table on 19-points from their first 11 games.
Although not totally out of the title race, despite trailing league leaders and arch-rivals Bayern Munich by five-points, Favre’s biggest critism has always been his side’s lack of attacking creativity.
The usually exciting German outfit have conceded almost twice as many as they have scored so far this season, a stark contrast to their on-field performances during the 2019-20 season.
Dortmund’s decision to show Favre the exit is perhaps somewhat of a suprise though as this week saw the Bundesliga side top their tough Champions League group on 13-points, losing just the one game on their way to the knockout rounds.
Nevertheless, as BILD have reported, the 63-year-old gaffer is now out of a job as it remains unclear at this stage who will be his permanent successor, although, Edin Terzic looks set to take over until the end of the season.
