According to German magazine kicker, The Austrian coach will still oversee Dortmund's two exhibition games in May against third-tier side Zwickau in Germany and Los Angeles FC in the United States.

Stöger had started the Bundesliga season with Cologne, but was fired at the beginning of December after his side failed to win any of their first 15 games. The 52-year-old then took the helm at Dortmund a week later after they parted ways with Peter Bosz, signing a contract until the end of the season.

Dortmund went unbeaten in their first 12 games under Stöger, but went stale towards the end of the season, winning just one of their last five games and only qualifying for the Champions League ahead of Leverkusen on goal difference.
