Swiss coach Favre has led a remarkable turnaround in the club's fortunes since he took over in February 2011, saving them from relegation in the 2010/11 campaign before securing them a Champions League place last season.

The 54-year-old's achievements had attracted the attention of other clubs around Europe, but Favre said he was pleased to be able to commit to the Bundesliga side.

"I have been holding talks for a long time with the board and the management and I am now pleased with this contract extension and the attractive challenges which lie ahead of us," Favre said.

"Lucien Favre is exactly the right coach for Borussia and we are delighted that we will continue along the path we have been following with him," added Max Eberl, the club's director of sport.
