SINSHEIM, Germany — Borussia Dortmund coach Peter Stoeger says losing at Hoffenheim 3-1 in the Bundesliga's final round on Saturday 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.
