Fortuna Dusseldorf needs a new coach. The second division team has split from Uwe Rössler. It is still unclear who should take responsibility for it.
Second division team Fortuna Düsseldorf and coach Uwe Roessler go their separate ways after missing out on the boarding. As the Rheinlander newspaper reported on White Monday, both sides “have decided not to continue their cooperation.” Rösler’s contract expires on June 30 and his successor has yet to be determined.
“In general, we have to see that our shared goals – albeit very close – have not been met,” said Fortuna Sports Director Uwe Klein: “After weighing all the factors, we came to the conclusion that the coaching position was a novel, unencumbered solution. Logical. We will present this soon. “
The 52-year-old Rossler took over as Fortuna coach in January 2020 in the Bundesliga at last in the table from Friedhelm Funkel, but the former professional player was unable to prevent relegation. In the completed second division season 2020/21, Fortuna reached fifth, losing six points from their promotion relegation position.
“In the discussions of trust and harmony with the sports administration, in which the sporting situation and the general situation around the club were discussed, the two parties reached the conclusion that after my contract expired, both sides would go their separate ways,” Rossler emphasized.
