Coach from abroad in line to succeed Tuchel says betting and next Borussia Dortmund manager tips
FootyOn experts give next Borussia Dortmund manager tips and appointing a foreign coach looks on the cards.
Thomas Tuchel’s acrimonious departure after steering the club to the DFB Pokal has left a vacancy in the Wetfalenstadion dugout.
The betting on who will succeed him as Borussia Dortmund boss is dominated by foreign coaches, so that suggests the route the club will go down.
In fact, prior to the Champions League final and end of the European club season, no German manager is shorter than 16/1 to take over from Tuchel.
Read on for our next Borussia Dortmund manager tips based on Sky Bet’s market…
Will Dortmund go Dutch with Bosz or Van Bronckhorst?
Heading the betting are bosses of two of the Eredivisie’s big three in Ajax coach Peter Bosz and Feyenoord manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
The former is odds-on at 1/2, having steered the Amsterdam outfit to runners-up spots domestically and in the Europa League.
Ex-Arsenal, Barcelona and Rangers left back Van Bronckhorst, meanwhile, brought the Eredivisie title back to Rotterdam for the first time since 1999.
Gio, as he used to wear on the back of his shirt as a player, is 3/1 to take on Borrusia Dortmund.
Van Bronckhorst is certainly a more intriguing contender for this club, who have tended to go with younger managers recently.
No playing Nice over Favre
Early favourite Lucien Favre, who has extensive Bundesliga coaching experience, has drifted out to 5/1 after Nice warned Borussia Dortmund off an approach.
The Swiss manager was previously in charge of Hertha Berlin and Borussia Monchengladbach.
Those spells in Germany, coupled with guiding Nice into next season’s Champions League, were reasons for Borussia Dortmund’s interest.
Favre has also got fiery, maverick Italian striker Mario Balotelli firing, as he scored a career-best 15 league goals under him this past season.
While he would be a safe pair of hands for the Westfalenstadion outfit, Favre is under contract with Nice until 2019 and they don’t welcome interest in him.
Cologne coach Stoeger a shout
Vienna native Peter Stoeger has steered Cologne into Europe for the first time in 25 years, as they will be in next season’s Europa League.
Borussia Dortmund have a good relationship with that club, having sold Milos Jojic to them in 2015 and loaned fellow Serbia international Neven Subotic there this past season.
Stoeger is under contract with Cologne until 2020, however, but does have a reported buyout clause.
At 10/1 to be next Borussia Dortmund boss, that price reflects their need to pay a release to get him.
With four seasons of Bundesliga coaching under his belt, this Austrian alternative is not without merit.
German gaffers are all outsiders
As mentioned above, no domestic option is shorter than 16s – headed by Hoffenheim’s Bundesliga coach of the year Julian Nagelsmann.
He’s not even 30 yet and has already steered his current club into the Champions League for next season.
Former Bayer Leverkusen boss Roger Schmidt, who was sacked in March after losing 6-2 to Borussia Dortmund, is also the same price and has the appeal of being a free agent.
Ex-national team manager Jurgen Klinsmann, who also used to be in charge of rivals Bayern Munich, is a 18/1 chance.
