Lucien Favre a candidate to succeed Adi Hütter at Borussia Mönchengladbach

Borussia Mönchengladbach have today parted ways with head coach Adi Hütter by mutual consent following their 5-1 win against Hoffenheim.

“We all agree that this is the right decision for both parties,” said sporting director Roland Virkus. “Our task is to now draw the correct conclusions from our analysis of the season and implement the right measures in order to ensure that we have a new set-up in place at the end of June to prepare for the new season.”

Hütter told Sky Germany: “After several intense and respectful discussions, we have mutually agreed to part ways. It’s not an easy decision, because I felt very at home here, but we didn’t live up to the expectations we had set for ourselves on the pitch.”

According to Sky Germany and Kicker, former Gladbach and Borussia Dortmund head coach Lucien Favre is a candidate to take over and initial talks have already taken place. But no appointment will be made in the near future.
