André Breitenreiter is over as coach of TSG Hoffenheim


The sporting crisis at TSG Hoffenheim has now officially cost coach André Breitenreiter his job at the Bundesliga club.

On Monday, the club confirmed the separation, which several media had already reported on Sunday.

Those responsible did not initially name a successor.

Pellegrino Matarazzo, who last coached VfB Stuttgart and previously had experience as an assistant coach at TSG, is being talked about.

The 49-year-old rider, who only arrived at the start of the season, had to leave as a result of his team's poor performance at VfL Bochum (2:5) on Saturday.

The club under Breitenreiter, who won the Swiss championship last season with FC Zurich, had fallen from fourth place in the table to 14th place in the past few weeks.

"In André we were able to hire a coach who, from day one, was well accepted not only by the team, but also by the entire staff, our employees at the office and all fans and partners," said TSG sporting director Alexander Rosen on Breitenreiter, who had signed a contract until June 2024: "We thank him for the pleasant cooperation and the many positive moments, especially at the beginning of our time together."

Last ten times without a win

TSG has not won any of their last ten competitive games.

In the round of 16 of the DFB Cup, the defending champions RB Leipzig finished (1: 3), in the league Hoffenheim only got two points in the last nine games.

The gap to the relegation rank is only three points.

After Alfred Schreuder and Sebastian Hoeneß, Breitenreiter is the third TSG coach in a row to have to leave early.

All of Julian Nagelsmann's successors did not make it to the original end of the contract.
