Hertha Berlin, who is struggling, fired Bruno Labbadia and long-time sports director Michael Preetz on Sunday, losing 4-1 to Werder Bremen a day ago and finishing 14th in the Bundesliga.
Hertha has won one of the last eight games and lost the last two games after spending hundreds of millions of pounds through investor Larswindholst in recent months.
But this season, the 54-year-old is far from successful for the capital’s largest club struggling for shape.
Former Hertha player Preetz, who has been with the club for nearly 25 years, also paid for the failed team rally.
“Unfortunately, we have to record 17 points in 18 games and we are in a serious situation,” said club CEO Carsten Schmidt. “That’s why we decided to change coaches and give them a new urge.”
He said the decision on Labbadia’s successor would be made in the next few days.
