Trainer Lucien Favre leaves for French club OGC Nice. The sixty-year old Swiss made after the defeat on the final day of the Ligue 1 with Olympique Lyon, which with 3-2 won thanks to a hattrick from Memphis Depay, his retirement is known. Favre will probably be back in the Bundesliga as coach of Borussia Dortmund.
The Swiss has been long cited as the main candidate to be at Dortmund to get started. Favre should be the successor of Peter Stöger, who in december dismissed Peter Bosz succeeded.
The Swiss ex-international previously worked in the German league with Hertha BSC and Borussia Mönchengladbach. Favre grip this season with Nice, just next to European football. Last season ended his team on the third place in the Ligue 1. Nice switched Ajax out in the preliminaries of the Champions League.
