Borussia Dortmund have made another great move in the transfer market by tying down their manager to a deal that extends his stay at the club.

Borussia Dortmund have been making all the right noises in the transfer market so far. After some really astute signings such as Thorgan Hazard and Julian Brandt, Die Borussen have also convinced their manager to stay a little longer.

The end of the previous Bundesliga season was heartbreaking. BVB almost ended Bayern Munich’s dominance in Germany. However, a few bad results undid all the good the team did in the first half of the campaign.

However, it is clear that the team is heading in the right direction. And with Favre in charge, the German giants have what it takes to become champions of Germany again.

The club has now signed Lucien Favre to a new deal that keeps him at the Signal Iduna Park until 2021.

The club’s CEO, Hans-Joachim Watzke outlined the reasons why Favre’s deal was extended. Borussia Dortmund met all targets they set out to achieve last season and Favre has been a huge hit.

‘He met expectations 100 percent,’ said Watzke, as reported by the Daily Mail.

‘It is only natural that we want to form the future together.’

Favre signed for Borussia Dortmund last summer after the sacking of Peter Stoger. Under the latter’s rein, the club ended fourth in the league standings and never looked like mounting a serious title challenge.

This time around though, Favre was the right call. He was one of the main reasons why England international, Jadon Sancho became a huge success. Meanwhile, the likes of Christian Pulisic (now at Chelsea) and Mario Gotze also shone for the club.

And with the club starting things positively this summer, Favre would be eager to finally end Bayern Munich’s dominance.
