Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has confirmed that Lucien Favre will stay on as a coach for the 2020/21 season.


"We are entering the new season in this constellation and want to attack again," Zorc said ahead of Dortmund's Bundesliga encounter with Hoffenheim on Saturday.

"We have a good, trustful relationship and will hold talks in due course," he said on the possibility of extending Favre's contract, which runs until 2021.

Favre, however, sees no need to discuss his future anytime soon.

"I have a contract until 2021. It's too early to talk about that," he said.

The 62-year-old took over as Dortmund coach in 2018.
