Manager Ernst Tanner released the following statement today: “We value Holger Stanislawski as both a person and a competent coach. But after lengthy and constructive discussion with him, we have come to the view that it is best for everyone involved to bring the current situation to an end. Recent developments with the team have certainly been a factor in our decision.”
Before last night's loss to 2. Bundesliga team Greuther Fürth, TSG had managed just one win in its previous ten games. Assistant managers André Trulsen and Klaus-Peter Nemet have also left the club.
Thursday's training, conducted away from public viewing, will be led by the club's fitness coaches.
