Frankfurt sack Veh after dropping into bottom three
Bundesliga strugglers Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday sacked coach Armin Veh after results over the weekend saw the club drop into the relegation places.
Veh’s second stint in Frankfurt lasted just 265 days and Saturday’s dismal 1-1 draw at home to Ingolstadt, when fans chanted ‘Armin Out’, left Eintracht third from bottom and winless in their last seven matches.
Werder Bremen climbed out of the bottom three with a 4-1 thrashing of last-placed Hanover 96 on Saturday, pushing Frankfurt down into the relegation places.
Veh lost 11 of his 25 league games in charge with just five wins
“It’s never nice to dismiss a coach,” said Frankfurt chairman Heribert Bruchhagen on Sunday morning.
“It was a very hard decision to make, because up until recently Armin Veh had our confidence.”
Veh previously walked away from Frankfurt at the end of the 2013/14 season after three years as head coach.
His assistant coach Reiner Geyer will take over training ahead of next Saturday’s game against Borussia Moenchengladbach until a permanent replacement is found.
This is the second time Veh has lasted less than a year at a club after he was sacked by Stuttgart, who he initially coached to the 2007 German league title, after just 146 days on his brief return in 2014.
