Ingolstadt appoint Henke as interim head coach

FC Ingolstadt 04 have appointed Michael Henke as head coach on an interim basis.

The former FC Bayern München and Borussia Dortmund assistant coach takes temporary charge following the departure of Markus Kauczinski, who was relieved of his duties after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to FC Augsburg.

Henke, 59, was also placed in temporary charge of the Bavarian club in September 2013 following the dismissal of Marco Kurz, with the club rooted to the bottom of Bundesliga 2. He was appointed assistant to Ralph Hasenhüttl later that year, but quit the role when Hasenhüttl joined RB Leipzig at the end of the 2015/16 season.

Ingolstadt currently sit with just two points from their opening ten league matches.
