Fürth flounder in first-ever Bundesliga season

Fürth - Life in the Bundesliga as a newly-promoted team can be tough, as Bundesliga 2 champions Greuther Fürth are currently finding out for themselves after becoming the 52nd different side to grace the hallowed turf of Germany's top flight.

The Clover Leaves' inaugural Bundesliga campaign has been full of firsts but unfortunately, despite their energetic performances, few of those records have been ones to treasure. Larger-than-life head coach Mike Büskens is no stranger to the top tier, having turned out in it over 350 times as a player and the 44-year-old will need to call on all that experience if Fürth are to avoid the record they want least of all - their first-ever relegation from the Bundesliga.
