Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre has come under increased pressure following the club's Champions League elimination against Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month.

With BVB also out of the DFB-Pokal, Favre will now need to win the Bundesliga title to secure his job at Signal Iduna Park, as per a report from Sport Bild.


Erik ten Hag (Ajax) and Adi Hütter (Eintracht Frankfurt) have been mentioned as candidates to replace Favre, who is under contract until 2021.

With nine games left to play, Favre and Dortmund sit second in the Bundesliga table, four points behind reigning champions Bayern München.
