BERLIN – Borussia Dortmund announced on Sunday the dismissal of head coach Peter Bosz and the signing of Austrian manager Peter Stoger until the end of the season.
The German club took this decision after a series of poor results in the Bundesliga, including a 2-1 home defeat against Werder Bremen on Saturday.
“Borussia Dortmund have today ended their cooperation with head coach Peter Bosz and appointed Peter Stoger as his successor,” the German club said in a statement on its official website.
The team’s management presented Stoger at a press conference at the club.
Having failed to win in the last eight league games, Dortmund holds the seventh position in the Bundesliga standings and was eliminated from the UEFA Champions League, barely qualifying to the Europa League.
Dortmund CEO Hans Joachim Watzke explained the dismissal decision was taken due to the “current sporting plight” of the German club.
The German side signed Bosz in June for two years after firing Thomas Tuchel for differences and tensions with the board.
Following the team’s poor results, however, Bosz’s career at Dortmund was shortlived, leading to his replacement by Stoger, who was sacked by Cologne last week.
