Bornemann was even after the horror series of 15 Bundesliga games successively without victory as an advocate of promotion coach - a majority on the board of the table last of the Bundesliga wants the "Bild" newspaper according to but also a new coach.

"Of course we are aware that the economic and sporting consolidation of the 1. FCN must be above all else. However, we see the sporting goals as being highly endangered by recent events and results, »wrote the Supervisory Board after a session on the sporting crisis in the night of Tuesday. "For this reason, we have decided as a committee to release the former sporting director Andreas Bornemann from his post. Unfortunately, we could not agree with him on a common path into the future, especially in relation to the head coach.

Bornemann and CFO Niels Rossow have been responsible for day-to-day operations at the Club. Decisions as in a coaching question require in the board "the simple majority of the votes cast," it says in the statute of the association. However, it also states: "In the event of a tie, each member of the Executive Board has the right to submit the matter to the Supervisory Board for decision." This means, for example, that Rossow can propose the separation of Köllner from the Supervisory Board. "Resolutions of the Supervisory Board are passed by a simple majority of the votes cast," it says.

This game, paired with the sporting ten-minute streak in the league of 15 matches without a win, made us realize that we as a committee once again have to take a close look at the current situation and analyze the current situation again, "wrote the board.

The bottom line is missing the results. The "Club" won a game in Germany's highest division at the end of September. Nevertheless, the distance to relegation rank 16 is only three points. With only twelve counters after 21 matchdays, the "kicker" could save since the introduction of the three-point rating but no club before the crash into the second division.

"We will not drop now, but rausholen the boxing gloves and give everything that this club remains in the first division," said goalkeeper Christian Mathenia in Hannover.

With the separation of Bornemann the FCN has now drawn first consequences. He was criticized mainly for his transfer policy. The Nurembergers brought in the winter break only the outdated Ivo Ilicevic from Kazakhstan. As a strong impetus for the relegation battle you can not understand the obligation. Supervisory Board boss Grethlein wants to speak out on today's Tuesday at 11.00 clock to the crisis in the Franks.
