Bundesliga soccer club VfL Wolfsburg has parted ways with coach Mark van Bommel with immediate effect.

The Lower Saxony announced this decision on Sunday around 24 hours after the 2-0 defeat against SC Freiburg.

It was the fourth Bundesliga bankruptcy in a row.

“The bottom line was that there were more dividing than connecting factors,” said managing director Jörg Schmadtke in a press release.

"The conviction to get out of the difficult sporting situation in this constellation and to bring about a U-turn as quickly as possible was missing."

Van Bommel himself, who has only been with VfL since the summer, was “surprised and disappointed” by the decision: “Because I am convinced that we would have managed to get back on the road to success together.

I wish the team that they quickly manage to turn things around again. ”The Wolfsburg-based company wants to provide information about the successor“ promptly ”.
