Borussia Dortmund have sacked manager Lucien Favre following Saturday’s 5-1 loss at home to promoted VfB Stuttgart, the German Bundesliga club said Sunday.

The Swiss, who had taken over in 2018 after arriving from France’s Nice, was seen as the ideal candidate to break Bayern Munich’s stranglehold on the Bundesliga title.

But in his 2-1/2 seasons in charge he failed to win a German league or Cup title, and Saturday’s defeat was the heaviest since his arrival.

Nicknamed “the brain” for his tactical nous, Favre, who previously worked at Hertha Berlin and Borussia Moenchenglabdach in the Bundesliga, had enjoyed a stellar first half of the 2018/19 season with Dortmund leading the title race before imploding after the winter break to see the league title go again to Munich.

Dortmund also failed to challenge Bayern last season.

Favre’s three-year contract was due to run out at the end of the season.

The side had also failed to win any of their last three league games, dropping to fifth in the league. 

They have, however, advanced to the Champions League round of 16.

Assistant coach Edin Terzic, a youth coach who has also worked as an assistant at West Ham United in England and Besiktas in Turkey, took charge of the Sunday afternoon training session and will remain at the helm until the end of the season.
