Borussia Dortmund coach Peter Stoeger not staying on

Dortmund will have to rely

Peter Stoger was a surprising choice by Dortmund but only time will tell if it was the right one.

Dortmund coach Peter Stoeger confirmed his widely-expected departure following the 3-1 defeat at Hoffenheim on Saturday.

"A new impulse with a new coach will be good for the club", said Stoeger.

"This was my last contracted game for Dortmund, which we decided together some time ago", he was quoted as saying by ESPN.

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has claimed that the club must ensure "everything [is] set to zero" next season as the Black and Yellows look to rebuild ahead of the new campaign.

Dortmund scraped into the UEFA Champions League on goal difference on Saturday, finishing fourth in the league after losing 3-1 to Hoffenheim. "It is still important for this club that we are in the Champions League".


Stoger only took over from the sacked Peter Bosz in December having himself been relieved of his duties at Cologne a week earlier.

"This was my last game at Dortmund's sideline.

Such a season should not happen again", Sahin said of his team who started out as title contenders but had to endure a roller-coaster season due to their inconsistency. 3rd place finish and an automatic champions League qualification to the group stages.

Following a crushing defeat at Bayern Munich and 2-0 loss to Schalke in the prestigious derby, as well as crashing out of Europa League against FC Salzburg, his future at the Westfalenstadion looked all but over.

Former Borussia Monchengladbach coach Lucien Favre is tipped to leave French side Nice to replace him.
