Lucien Favre has turned down the chance to succeed Adi Hütter as Borussia Mönchengladbach coach.

"Borussia has a place in Lucien Favre's heart, but he doesn't want to work in Germany any more," said Gladbach sporting director Roland Virkus.

"You can be sure that we did everything, but I don't think that Lucien will be the next head coach of Borussia."

Gladbach will now have to find a viable alternative to Favre.

"It is essential for the future of the club that we make the right decision on the coaching issue. We have drawn up a clear profile of requirements and are currently in talks with several candidates," stated Virkus.
