So it is that in an era where Borussia Dortmund is trying to get back to the g0od old times of Jurgen Klopp, chief of club Joachim Watzke decided that his personal issues stood greater than the harmony and slow rebuilding being introduced into the squad by sacked coach Thomas Tuchel.

Many expected the chief to go for former Borussia Monchengladbach coach Lucien Favre since he offered something similar to that of the two previous men to take hold of the proceedings of Westfalenstadion pitch. His achievement with French side OGC Nice did enough to convince observers of his capability.

Alas the Dortmund chief like his earlier decision to sack Tuchel against the wishes of substantial of people connected to the club felt Ajax’s Peter Bosz will be a better head to steer them towards the destination they are longing for.

Bosz is a fine coach no doubt but appointing the Dutch man raises few red flags chief of which is that the 53-year old believes football should be played in a way distinctly different from the style Dortmund has been used to for the past 6 years.

Klopp introduced the stylish metallic brand to the Borussenphilosophy. Thomas Tuchel continued with an identical albeit refined form of it and now Germans face the prospect of going back to the basics of the Dutch brand of total football developed by Johan Cruyff a man Peter Bosz is widely known to be a disciple of.

Bayern and Barcelona can attest such brand posing more questions than answers in recent years as most teams have figured out a way to do the witchy work around and as a result it hardly yields long termsuccess nowadays.

Only time will tell if Dortmund is heading towards the rightdirection.
