Guerreiro, who's going into the final year of his contract, has been linked with a move away from Signal Iduna Park this summer, but speaking after Saturday's 2-0 win over Bayern München in the Super Cup final, Favre underlined that he is eager to hold on to the 25-year-old.
"Raphael Guerreiro played very well today. At the end of the game, he was a bit tired because he had to defend a lot. He ran a lot. He instigated the second goal, cleverly winning the ball and sending it to Sancho with an outside-of-the-boot pass. It was an important counter-attack. He is a very good, intelligent player. We hope that he stays — but he'll stay," Favre said at a press conference after the game, according to The Yellow Wall.
Guerreiro made 32 appearances for Dortmund last season with six goals and six assists to his name.
