Lucien Favre turns down the chance to manage Borussia Dortmund

Lucien Favre has turned down the opportunity to manage Borussia Dortmund and will stay at Nice this season, per Blick.

Favre’s agent Reza Fazeli was quoted telling SportBild : ” The transfer window is closed for us this summer.”

The 59 year old had been the favorite to take over the reins at Dortmund following Thomas Tuchel’s departure, with the club reportedly willing to pay as much as €10 million in compensation to Favre’s club Nice.

The report further says that Dortmund will now turn their attention towards Fiorentina coach Paulo Sousa who won the UEFA Champions League with the Die Borussen as a player.
