According to the “Bild”, Lucien Favre stands before his second coaching office at Borussia Mönchengladbach and is scheduled to be presented on Sunday. The Swiss should follow Adi Hütter.
From 2011 to 2015 he was already very successful with the eleven of the Lower Rhine. A return campaign is often skeptical. In Gladbach it could make sense, but also carries a risk. An analysis:
The Borussia conceded 61 goals in the 34 Bundesliga games of the past season. For a team with the demands of Borussia, that’s far too many. Only relegated SpVgg Greuther Fürth and Hertha BSC collected more hits. Favre has already shown that he can stabilize teams defensively – also in Mönchengladbach.
After he had taken over the Borussia in February 2011, the team that had previously been vulnerable and already considered a safe relegation team had to accept more than two goals in one game by the end of the season. Before that, she had lost 0: 7 at VfB Stuttgart and 0: 4 against Eintracht Frankfurt.
the way of playing
With the game idea of Hütter, which was geared towards pressing and quick ball overcepted, the Gladbach professionals did not get along well over long distances from the past season.
Favre had shaped another playing style, which was characterized by possession of the ball, during his first commitment in Mönchengladbach. It is quite possible that with this idea of football at the Borussians, he is getting better this time.
the better maker
A change is imminent for the Gladbachers. National player Matthias Ginter is already a departure to SC Freiburg. Denis Zakaria switched to Juventus Turin in winter and other regular players are facing the jump.
The Gladbachers want to rely on their own offspring again and install even more young players into the Bundesliga team. Young professionals in particular could benefit from Favre.
The Swiss is known for making young players and teams better and teaching them important details. Several ex-players Favres already raved about it publicly.
the self -critical
Favre is a perfectionist and is also very critical of himself.
The Borussia found out in September 2015. After six competitive defeats at the beginning of the season, the decision -makers at Borussia still believed in Favre, who no longer anymore. Mission publicly ended and left the club.
The experiences from that time hardly cloud the view of Favre’s success. They are still a warning.
