Robin Dutt has announced his retirement as a VfL Bochum coach. It is to be expected that it will happen this Sunday.

Looking at the table, you can certainly come to the conclusion that something is wrong. Bochum had after a blatant first half against promoted SV Wehen Wiesbaden and a deficit of 0: 3 at the last minute, but still managed to equalize. However, the VfL is without a win and only counts two points after four matchdays. After the first half, there were violent demonstrations of supporters against VfL professionals.

"We should have a fundamental exchange, especially about my position," said Dutt, "Reviersport," at the press conference. "If my team performs as in the first half, sometimes very badly, then we have made false estimates, it does not help to continue with a coach counted."

The interview of babysitter Riemann undermines Dutt's authority

It should be him. Because after the presentation of his guardian, he apparently lost support. This should have happened at the secret break of halftime to revolt against the tactics of the coach.

Bochum goalkeeper Manuel Riemann has expressed his anger at least in a conversation with the Sky TV channel. Everything should be on the table this Sunday. Riemann said he and VfL captain Anthony Losilla had led the way for the second half. "We found ourselves after the break on the pitch, and I said with Toto that we were changing sides, we were playing long balls and we were going to the second ball," Riemann said. This succeeded, but completely undermined the authority of the coach.

Dutt said that probably because of this, he thinks of the resignation and will talk Sunday to the sports director Sebastian Schindzielorz about his future. He wanted to follow his own path, said the 54-year-old. "I do not have to wait for everyone to go to the barricades, when we talk and say we have a common path, we have it, but I do not want to scream before the usual scenario begins. "In the year 2019, he conceded," lack of resources ".
