The Borussia Dortmund team coach, Lucien Favre, has been delayed just before their huge Champions League clash against Chelsea. This has caused a lot of concern among the Dortmund faithful, as the team is already under pressure to perform in the competition.
Favre was due to arrive in London on Monday, but his flight was delayed due to bad weather. This has caused a lot of disruption to the team’s preparations, as they were due to have their final training session before the match on Tuesday.
The delay has also caused a lot of speculation about Favre’s future at the club. He has been under pressure in recent weeks, with Dortmund struggling in the Bundesliga and their Champions League campaign not going as planned.
The team’s performance in the Champions League has been particularly poor, with Dortmund losing all three of their group stage matches. This has led to speculation that Favre could be sacked if the team fails to turn things around against Chelsea.
However, Dortmund’s CEO, Hans-Joachim Watzke, has insisted that Favre will remain in charge for the foreseeable future. He has also said that the team is fully behind their coach and that they are confident of getting a result against Chelsea.
Despite the delay, Favre is expected to arrive in London in time for the match. He will be hoping to inspire his team to a much-needed victory, which could help to turn their season around.
The match against Chelsea is a must-win for Dortmund, as they need to win their remaining two group stage matches to have any chance of progressing to the knockout stages. It promises to be an exciting match, and Dortmund will be hoping that Favre’s delay does not affect their performance.
