Football League Eintracht Braunschweig responded to a performance decline with just seven points from eight league games played and coach Christian Fleetman left with an immediate effect. The 37-year-old took over the team shortly before the start of the season, after Andre Schubert briefly moved to the second division of Holstein Kiel.
After an intensive analysis of the current situation, particularly the team's athletic development in recent weeks, Eintracht Braunschweig's leaders have decided to step down from coach Christian Fleetman, the statement said. The decision was met with due consideration, and the necessary distance to the last competition match between Monter and Christian Fleetman was announced in a personal conversation.
Sports director Peter Volman talks about team development
"We see the risks, but also the opportunities, behind such a significant change in the position of the coach. The development of the team did not last as long as we wanted and we are all after weighing all the arguments, no longer coming to the conclusion that Christian Fleetman will make a turn with the team. We appreciate Christian both humanly and professionally and thank him for his work. We wish him all the best for his future, "said Eintracht Sports Director Peter Volman.
A successor should be announced soon.
