Borus­sia Dort­mund coach Peter Stoeger says los­ing at Hof­fen­heim 3-1 in the Bun­desliga's fi­nal round yes­ter­day was his last game in charge.

Stoeger says, "That was my last com­pet­i­tive game for Dort­mund. We de­cided that a while back to­gether. A new im­pe­tus, with a new coach, will do the club good."

Stoeger sta­bi­lized the team after tak­ing over from the fired Peter Bosz in De­cem­ber but came in for crit­i­cism after some lack­lus­ter per­for­mances. The side hasn't won con­sec­u­tive league games since Feb­ru­ary, and Satur­day's de­feat was its sec­ond in a row.

Dort­mund squeezed into the Cham­pi­ons League by fin­ish­ing fourth on goal dif­fer­ence ahead of Bayer Lev­erkusen.

Stoeger's con­tract was due to ex­pire at the end of the sea­son.

For­mer Borus­sia Moenchenglad­bach coach Lu­cien Favre is tipped to leave French side Nice to re­place him.
