Borussia Dortmund has good chances of Saturday's victory.  LOOKING: Lothar Matthäus, why are Swiss players so popular in the Bundesliga? Lothar Matthäus: First, they understand the language, secondly, they know the mentality, thirdly, they have a very good education in Switzerland
Which "Swiss Bundesliga" is best for you? We have many Swiss players in the Bundesliga, but I think Yann Sommer is playing a very good season right now in Mönchengladbach. He is the player who plays most consistently and is most important to his team.
After the harsh criticism of Favre at the end of October, how do you see the BVB coach today? Favre has always been a good coach, he has also done a good job in Dortmund. So far he has not been criticized for what he has done with the team so far, but for what more he could have gotten out of the team.
Can you specify it? The point is that maybe he should be a little more emotional. And I think it has just seen in recent weeks that Favre is a little adapted to Dortmund and especially based on his predecessor Jürgen Klopp. He has had good emotional contact with his players. A knock-off, a hug, small things can often do so much and that's what you've missed with Favre. That he is a professional, that he has tactical understanding, that he can improve the players, it was known in Dortmund, we knew that expert. But football is an emotional sport and we missed that feeling with him, especially in Dortmund with such an emotional club.
Do you think the latest results have changed the critical attitude? A coach lives on results And just such a game as against Inter Milan, where you are actually back 0-2 hopeless, shooting with flying colors, is a merit for the coach. And then you see that the relationship between the players and the coach is in order again. That was not the case weeks ago – and we know that from internal sources. But Favre has done a lot.
Is Favre the coach who can make Dortmund a champion? I am convinced that Dortmund has a coach with Favre who can also win titles, although he does not have shown for a long time. He had taken the last title with him in Zurich. 12 years ago. And yes, he has a good team, works at a good club and if someone in the Bundesliga Bayern Munich replaces as a champion, then Borussia Dortmund has the greatest opportunities. Not only because of the coach but also because of the quality of the squad.
To Bavaria: Who should become the new Bayern coach? What kind of profile is needed now? It is not only the coach's profile that counts, but the most important thing is that the FC Bayern officials have 100% confidence in the coach. This has been lacking with Niko Kovac from time to time and of course it is important that Bayern Munich is a coach who first mastered the German language. Secondly, it is important that he has gained experience in big clubs, that he has won titles, that he knows how to handle international players at a high level and above all he must of course bring his own philosophy into the club. Bayern Munich is not a club like Ajax Amsterdam or Barcelona, Benfica Lisbon or Porto, who develop such a philosophy for their game.
But? Bayern Munich is a club that says "ok, we choose the good players and the coach can then decide in which system he plays". Basically Bayern play with 4-2-3-1 but of course you can change the system in today's modern football.
If you could choose: Which player would you like to see in the Bundesliga? I am a fan of Messi and of course it would be nice if such a player would play in the Bundesliga. It would be good for the German Bundesliga and German football, but it is just a thought. A dream, a wish. For I am convinced that Messi will end his career in Barcelona. (Red)
