Bundesliga coaches: Adi Hütter and Markus Weinzierl resign

Adi Hütter’s era is over after just one year at Borussia Mönchengladbach. Immediately following Saturday’s 5-1 win over TSG Hoffenheim, the club and manager announced their split. It was mutually agreed to go our separate ways. Hütter still had a contract in Gladbach until 30 June 2024.

“We agree that this decision is the right one for both sides,” said sporting director Roland Virkus. “Our task now is to draw conclusions from the elaboration of the season and initiate the appropriate measures to prepare for the new season in a new constellation at the end of June,” said Max Eberl’s successor.

Hütter had just announced his farewell to the Sky station. “I would like to put all speculation aside. After many intense, good and respectful discussions, we mutually agreed that we would go our separate ways. Today was my last match here at Borussia Mönchengladbach,” said the 52-year-old. The two assistant coaches Christian Peintinger and Armin Reutershahn will also no longer work for Borussia. After their sporting director Eberl in January, the Gladbachers also lost the coach Eberl brought.

Another goodbye: Weinzierl leaves Augusta

There is also a change of manager at FC Augsburg: this decision was announced by manager Markus Weinzierl after the last Bundesliga match against SpVgg Greuther Fürth (2-1) on TV Sky. That was his “last game,” the 47-year-old said Saturday. 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 stressed that there have been no talks with the club about his future. Coach Stefan Reuter was unaware of his decision, the former Schalke manager said and showed obvious cracks in the relationship.

“It wasn’t planned that way. My heart hurts too,” said Weinzierl, who was again at the helm of FC Augsburg in his second term since April 2021. The relationship with Reuter was not unleashed even during the its early days.
