Struggling Cologne Sack Coach And Sports Director
Berlin, Nov 9 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 10th Nov, 2019 ) :Bundesliga strugglers Cologne have sacked both sports director Armin Veh and head coach Achim Beierlorzer following their eighth league defeat in 11 games.
Then coach Beierlorzer, who had only been in charge for 132 days, was shown the door on Saturday.
"I regret that we are forced to take this step. However, the hoped-for success has failed to materialise and it's our task to ensure that FC (Cologne) achieves its goals," said club official Frank Aehlig.
With Veh gone, it fell to Aehling, a senior member of the backroom staff, to cancel Saturday's training session and speak to the players after confirming Beierlorzer's departure.
Caretaker coaches have been appointed to prepare for their next game against high-flying RB Leipzig in a fortnight.
After the club secured promotion last season, Beierlorzer took charge in July, but was sacked after just five months.
