Adi Hütter and Markus Weinzierl announce their exit as coaches live on TV – Bundesliga

That has probably never happened in the history of the Bundesliga. Double coach hammer with last whistle of last match day.

Both Adi Hütter (52) and Markus Weinzierl (47) stop as coaches of Borussia Mönchengladbach and FC Augsburg. Both said so after the final whistle of the match against Hoffenheim and Fürth on the Sky microphone.

Hütter on Sky: “After many intensive minutes and discussions, we came to the conclusion that we go our separate ways. It is very disappointing, but we did not achieve what we set out for in the sport. I can only thank the club for their honesty and clarity. ”

Weinzierl explained that this was his “last fight”. For him, it was the “right decision”.

Weinzierl informed the team of his move shortly after the final whistle. Players should be the first to know. Weinzierl pointed out that there had been no talks with the club about his future.

Manager Stefan Reuter (55) was not familiar with his decision, said the former Schalke coach and showed clear cracks in the relationship. “It was not planned that way,” Weinzierl said. “My heart hurts too.” He would have liked to have been in Augsburg for a long time.

Hütter separation at Gladbach had been indicated

The Gladbach separation has already been announced in the last few days.

As BILD and SPORT BILD reported on Friday, the 1st division club is already actively looking for a replacement on the market, and it is said that talks have been held with a potential candidate or his adviser.

“We are of the unanimous opinion that this decision is the right one for both sides,” said Borussia’s sporting director Roland Virkus in a press release published at the same time on Gladbach’s website.

“Our task now is to draw conclusions from the treatment of the season and to initiate appropriate measures to begin preparing for the new season in a new constellation at the end of June.” Also the two assistant coaches Christian Peintinger and Armin Reutershahn will no longer work for Borussia.

Sportingly, Borussia did not live up to expectations, embarrassing matches as against Freiburg (0: 6) were only the tip of the iceberg. Much worse though: The relationship between the team and the coach seems to be so broken that even a squad change in the summer would change a bit.

In the last few weeks, this broken relationship has become more and more apparent as players have increasingly expressed it internally. Most of the leading players no longer believe in a successful future with Hütter.

For a long time, the bosses were of the opinion that the cabin climate could be saved with few departures like Matthias Ginter (28) or Ramy Bensebaini (27). Therefore, the managers Hütter was involved in the planning of the upcoming season. Now there are many indications that there has been a new way of thinking.

Most recently, sports director Roland Virkus (55) avoided a clear commitment in Hütter at the press conference on Thursday. When asked if the Austrian would still be the coach of Borussia in the coming season, he replied: “We will, we will discuss everything else.”

Augsburg’s Markus Weinzierl also throws live on TV

At Augsburg, the club is booming!

President Klaus Hofmann (54) resigned on Friday. Officially, the move was voluntary, but according to BILD information, Hofmann was forced to resign due to serious disagreements in the club’s management.

The boss is gone – and the coach stops too. You have to “put everything to the test” and also “question each position,” Weinzierl announced Thursday. There have been no negotiations to extend his contract “until now”. In “next week”, Weinzierl and FC Augsburg wanted to talk about the future.

“I also have one or two questions that are crucial,” Weinzierl said, giving examples: “What does the club want to achieve? What are the goals? What are the requirements?” Playing constantly against relegation is not enough for Straubinger.

“It is clear that you want more. That it is always the task to finish over your budget, over your abilities, “explained Weinzierl, who has been in charge of FC Augsburg since April 2021. In his second term. And even in his early days, the relationship with Reuter was not unencumbered.
