Head coach Only this chapter

Lucien Favre

Date of birth: 2 November 1957
Nationality: Swiss
Playing career: Oulens, Lausanne, Neuchâtel Xamax, Servette (twice), Toulouse
Coaching career: Echallens (youth), Echallens, Yverdon-Sport, Servette, Zürich, Hertha Berlin, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Nice, Borussia Dortmund

• Capped 24 times by Switzerland, Favre was a playmaker during his playing days, with his career blighted by a persistent knee injury. Nevertheless, he won the 1985 Swiss league with Servette, two years after being voted Footballer of the Year.

• During his first stint as a coach he guided Echallens into the second tier for the first time in their history, before winning promotion to the top flight at his new club Yverdon. In 2001 he won the Swiss Cup with Servette, also guiding the club to the UEFA Cup fourth round, and joined Zürich in spring 2003, winning the Swiss Cup (2005) as well as back-to-back league titles in 2006 and 2007 and being voted Swiss coach of the year two years running.

• In summer 2007, he left for Germany to join Hertha, unexpectedly guiding the capital side to fourth place in 2008/09. He was voted coach of the year in Germany after that term, but left his post in September.

• Took over at Gladbach in February 2011 and guided them to safety via the relegation play-offs before finishing fourth the next season to return the club to Europe after 16 years. In 2014/15, a third-placed finish in the Bundesliga earned Gladbach a UEFA Champions League group stage place and Favre Germany's coach of the year award for a second time.

• Resigned in September 2015 and took over at French side Nice the following May, overseeing a third-placed finish in 2016/17. Returned to Germany to take charge of Dortmund in May 2018, the club finishing as Bundesliga runners-up in his debut campaign.

Ernesto Valverde

Date of birth: 9 February 1964
Nationality: Spanish
Playing career: Alavés, Sestao, Espanyol, Barcelona, Athletic Club, Mallorca
Coaching career: Athletic Club (twice), Espanyol, Olympiacos (twice), Villarreal, Valencia, Barcelona

• Known as 'Txingurri' – or worker ant – as a player, former striker Valverde scored 44 goals in 170 appearances over a six-year stay with Athletic, which included his only cap for Spain. Had previously helped Espanyol to a third-place Liga finish in 1987 and an appearance in the following season's UEFA Cup final, which they lost on penalties to Bayer Leverkusen, before spending two years at Barcelona between 1988 and 1990, making 22 appearances.

• Began coaching career in Athletic's youth ranks before stepping up to handle first-team affairs with the Basque club in 2003/04; guided the Leones to UEFA Cup qualification in his first term in charge. Valverde again found himself losing a UEFA Cup final on penalties in 2007 – this time as coach of Espanyol – with Liga rivals Sevilla emerging victorious in Glasgow.

• In his first season outside Spain, steered Olympiacos to a Greek league and cup double in 2008/09 before signing a one-year deal with Villarreal in June 2009. Was sacked the following January with the Yellow Submarine in tenth.

• Rejoined Olympiacos in August 2010, lifting another championship at the end of his first campaign. Added a second domestic double the next year but then stood down, taking the Valencia helm in December 2012. Reappointed by Athletic in June 2013 and took them to fourth in the Liga in his first term back, winning the 2015 Spanish Super Cup with a 5-1 defeat of Barcelona – where he succeeded Luis Enrique as head coach in May 2017.

• Marked his first season in charge at the Camp Nou with a league and cup double, Barcelona losing only one Liga fixture on the way to claiming the title, and retained the championship in 2018/19, although the Blaugrana lost in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals and Copa del Rey final.
