Bundesliga side Stuttgart sack head coach Zorniger

Stuttgart, Nov 24 (IANS) German football club VfB Stuttgart on Tuesday announced the dismissal of head coach Alexander Zorniger with immediate effect.

Three days after the surprising 0-4 loss to bottom side FC Augsburg in the Bundesliga, Stuttgart reacted with the dismissal of Zorniger, who took the reins in May after putting pen to paper on a three-year deal, reports Xinhua.

“Especially how we lost last Saturday gave us to think. We analysed the impact of the defeat on the team and coaching stuff and came to a decision this morning,” Stuttgart president Bernd Wahler said.

As a consequence, Zorniger as well his assistants have been dismissed with immediate effect.

Stuttgart’s Under-23 coach Juergen Kramny will take the helm until further notice.

Stuttgart sit currently on the 16th place, a relegation play-off spot, with just three wins, one draw and nine defeats from 13 games.
