Dortmund Chief Zorc Rebuffs Favre Rift Claims

Dortmund Chief Zorc Rebuffs Favre Rift Claims

Sporting director Michael Zorc has rubbished suggestions of a rift between Borussia Dortmund officials and coach Lucien Favre.

There were high hopes in the summer that Dortmund could go one better than last term, when they narrowly missed out on the Bundesliga title to Bayern Munich.

Favre’s men were sitting pretty nine points clear at one point but ended up trailing their rivals by two points at the end of the campaign.

The club has openly expressed their desire to win a first domestic title since their back-to-back successes in 2010-11 and 2011-12.

And they backed the coach by providing the funds to sign Mats Hummels, Julian Brandt, Nico Schulz and Thorgan Hazard in the summer transfer window.

But, after two opening league wins, Dortmund went into the international break on the end of a shock 3-1 defeat at promoted Union Berlin.

Afterwards, Favre said he had to be careful what he said and added that he felt there was still “a lot of work to be done” to turn Dortmund into genuine title contenders.

The German media suggested Favre’s words were a dig at the Dortmund board at their target of winning the Bundesliga this season.

However, when asked about Favre, speaking ahead of Saturday’s clash against Bayer Leverkusen, Zorc said: “There is no dissent.

“Do you really think we set goals without talking to the coach first? That’s insane. How often do I have to repeat that? I know you don’t like to hear it.”
