The President of the Association of German Football Teachers (BDFL), Lutz Hangartner, has criticized the separation of coaches at the Bundesliga clubs FC Schalke and Arminia Bielefeld as "actionism".
"You want to demonstrate to the outside world that you have tried everything in the interests of the association," Hangartner told the "Sportschau".
"In reality, the dismissal of a coach should rather distract from one's own mistakes in the club management." The development that many clubs quickly change coaches is "anything but good."
According to Hangartner, in certain situations a change of coach could be an “effective means”.
"What we criticize, however, is the amount and, above all, the timing of the coach dismissals," he said with a view to the early exit of David Wagner at Schalke and Achim Beierlorzer at FSV Mainz 05 this season.
The frequent changes would bring "no positive results".
Wagner and Beierlorzer each had to leave after two match days.
According to Hangartner, a possible wrong development between the coach and the team is hardly recognizable at such a time.
Hangartner described FC Schalke, which is currently looking for the fifth coach this season, as a "great example of a case of poor personnel planning on the part of management".
The frequent coach changes are “of course completely pointless and also incredibly expensive for a commercial enterprise that is a Bundesliga club these days.
That is incredibly expensive - without getting any closer to the root of the problem. "The coaches would have to" hold out their heads for the poor planning of the management ".
Bielefeld wants to introduce its new trainer on Tuesday at 1 p.m. as part of an online press conference.
Former Frank Kramer from Fürth is considered a favorite.
Uwe Neuhaus had trained the newcomer since 2018 and still had an ongoing contract until the summer of 2022. The table-16.
got only one point from the last five games, on Monday the club parted ways with Neuhaus.
