Borussia Dortmund ‘have agreement’ in place with Marco Rose to replace Lucien Favre as manager after he was sacked by the Bundesliga club

  • Marco Rose has reportedly agreed to take job at Westfalenstadion next summer
  • Red Bull Salzburg’s Jesse Marsch and Mauricio Pochettino also linked with role
  • Lucien Favre was sacked on Sunday after a poor run of form in the Bundesliga  
  • Borussia Dortmund have confirmed assistant coach Edin Terzic as interim boss 

Borussia Dortmund reportedly have an agreement in place with Marco Rose to replace Lucien Favre as manager. 

The German giants sacked Favre in the wake of Saturday’s 5-1 home defeat to newly promoted Stuttgart, which leaves them fifth in the table and six points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen.

According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio; Dortmund have a deal in principle for the Borussia Monchengladbach manager to take over at end of the season.

The Westfalenstadion outfit have already started their search for a new manager after confirming they sacked Favre on Sunday afternoon.  

The 63-year-old led the club into the Champions League knockout stages as group winners, however their poor form in the Bundesliga left him in a precarious position.

The Black and Yellows lost four of their past five league games; and their fine form in Europe simply wasn’t enough to keep the Swiss manager in the hotseat.  

Dortmund have confirmed assistant coach Edin Terzic will take the reigns as interim boss until the end of the season.

Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been liked with the job at Westfalenstadion

Monchengladbach manager Rose and Red Bull Salzburg chief Jesse Marsch are amongst the favourites to take over in the summer.    

Another manager who could be in the reckoning is Mauricio Pochettino; the former Tottenham boss has been out of work for over year and is keen to get back into management.

The 48-year-old Argentine has been linked with a host of jobs including Zenit St. Petersburg, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

However, it remains to be seen if Pochettino would be prepared to wait another six months for the role with the Bundesliga club to become available.
