Sports director Max Eberl of Borussia Munich is holding great pieces on his former coach Lucien Favre, who now works very successfully at Borussia Dortmund.
“When he left us, I already said: I can only congratulate any club that manages to convince him to become a coach there. I still stand by this opinion,”said the 45-year-old in an interview with the”Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntag”about the coach.
Compared to the time of the Swiss at Niederrhein, Eberl said,”Now Lucien Favre is four more years, and if he has added a comfort to his football quality, then Dortmund’s competition can warm up.”
About the reasons for the positive development of the Gladbachers who receive Hannover 96 today, Eberl said:”In keywords: good conclusions from the past, no injured players, As a development step under Coach Dieter Hecking, with whom Borussia extended the contract on Friday, he called the conversion of the system from 4-4-2 to 4-3. We played for six or seven years in the old basic order, and at some point that was out of the question. Also for the players, for whom dealing with new ideas can be inspiring.”
