Dortmund confirm Lucien Favre as new coach

Lucien Favre has been appointed the new head coach at Borussia Dortmund, signing a two-year contract with the club.

Favre, who is a familiar face in the Bundesliga, having previously held the reins at Borussia Mönchengladbach between 2011 and 2015, and Hertha Berlin between 2007 and 2009, left Ligue 1 club OGC Nice earlier this week, and it has now been confirmed that he has signed a two-year contract at Signal Iduna Park.

However, manager Peter Stoger announced his departure from the club following their 3-1 defeat at Hoffenheim on the final day of the Bundesliga season, and Favre has quickly been installed as his successor.

Peter Bosz was relieved of his own duties in December, with Dortmund enduring something of a turbulent season.
