Dortmund CEO confirms Favre will stay and tells Wolfsburg's Arnold to 'shut up' after 4-0 defeat comments

Hans-Joachim Watzke backed the BVB boss despite a heavy home defeat to Hoffenheim on the final day of the 2019-20 Bundesliga season

Borussia Dortmund head coach Lucien Favre's job is safe despite suffering a humiliating 4-0 home loss against Hoffenheim on the final day of the 2019-20 Bundesliga season, according to Hans-Joachim Watzke, the club's managing director.

Dortmund were stunned at Signal Iduna Park in the last game of the interrupted 2019-20 league campaign, Hoffenheim striker Andrej Kramaric scoring four times in the first 50 minutes of the match - including twice within the first five minutes of the second half - to condemn Favre's team to a shocking loss.

This placed extra pressure on Favre, who saw his Dortmund side bested once again in the Bundesliga title race by Bayern Munich, who have now won the last eight German top division titles in a row.
