Summary

  • Schubert relieved of his duties after poor run of results.
  • Gladbach have only managed a single win in 11 Bundesliga outings.
  • The Foals hovering dangerously above the relegation zone.

Borussia Mönchengladbach have relieved head coach Andre Schubert of his duties with immediate effect.

Gladbach have only picked up a single win in their last 11 Bundesliga outings, and Tuesday's loss to VfL Wolfsburg leaves them just three points ahead of the relegation playoff spot, ahead of Wednesday night's action.

In a statement on the club's website, sporting director Max Eberl said, "we have held a lot of talks in recent days, analysed our on-the-pitch development and discussed a great deal, and together with André we have come to the conclusion that it is better for both sides to call an end to our collaboration."

Schubert took over as interim coach from Lucien Favre in September 2015, after Gladbach lost their first five matches of the season. He won his first six games and eventually guided the Foals to fourth place, and a spot in this year's UEFA Champions League.

Gladbach added that Schubert's successor would be announced "in due course".
