In all competitions, there are now seven consecutive defeats, five of which are in the Bundesliga. In the table, this means the twelfth place. The situation with wolves is dangerous. The character of Florian Kohfeldt will also be discussed in public. The Lower Saxony coach has not managed to stabilize the team since arriving at the end of October.

But the club made it clear that the coach would not be fired. Sports director Marcel Schaefer stood behind the coach. “We are absolutely convinced we are going to turn this turn with him,” he said on Saturday 1: “We have to change a few things — and we will.”
What is Wolfsburg missing?
In addition, according to the club, the press conference was canceled “for organizational reasons”, and the coach’s statements about the match for the club were uploaded to the club’s website. At DAZN Kohfeldt spoke in more detail beforehand – and also explained his team’s problems: “This team needs anchors and guard rails. They need to know what we’re defending at critical moments. We have to work on that.”
Kohfeldt has until January 9 to address this and the team’s defensive tactical problems. Then he goes to Bochum at the start of the second half of the season. If you lose the game in pot, the support of the executive wing will also diminish.
