It is one of the oldest wisdom of football: The coach is the weakest link. Of course, that also applies to Borussia Dortmund. Of course, now beat (after three wins against Gladbach, Wolfsburg and Inter Milan) all again on Lucien Favre, who apparently did not succeed in the 0-4 defeat in Munich, his team – a top match at Bayern appropriate – to set and motivate. But the approach is exactly the wrong one.
BVB coach Favre after classic bankruptcy: "Very, very weak performance"
The best example of the discrepancy between claim and reality is Axel Witsel, the alleged leader who called "eggs" during the week, but apparently forgot to put them in his gym bag.
Last season, Dortmund lost a 9-point lead and lost in a direct duel with Bayern (0: 5). When it comes down to it, killer instinct and winning mentality have been missing for years. That's the real problem of BVB – no matter who sits on the bench.
