The former Bundesliga coach Lucien Favre does not want to be in the football pension.


At some point you sit at home and notes: I want to go back, I need the place, I have to kick against a ball, smelling football, feeling adrenaline, said the 64-year-old of the news agency Keystone-SDA.

With his outward throw at Borussia Dortmund in December 2020, he has agreed now, the Swiss assured. Two and a half years in Dortmund have a long time – my balance is good, Favre emphasized.

In the Bundesliga he had also trained before the BVB Bertha BSC and Borussia Mönchengladbach. Now he wanted to finish his break and take over a trainer job again. I feel like young, and I’m healthy. Yes, I’m really well. The batteries are charged. A few years I still stay in business, Favre said.

However, he only wanted to take a task of which he was 100 percent convinced. Over the past few months, he had been traded for the coaching items in the Swiss national team and the London Club Crystal Palace. So far, however, the time for a re-entry did not fit, explained Favre.
