Zvonimir Soldo Sacked By Koln

Soldo Sacked After Woeful Start.

After only winning five points from their first nine matches, Koln have decided to relieve Zvonimir Soldo of his duties as head coach. The defensive-minded manager had his team playing a very deep 4-1-4-1 formation, and his lack of attacking ambition ultimately was the end of him. Koln have dropped into the relegation zone, and that’s been the final nail in the coffin for Soldo. Frank Schaefer, the current U-21 boss at Koln, has takent he reins as caretaker boss.

Soldo’s side were set up to grind results out, but failed to do that. If a side is defending deep and playing on the counter-attack to grind out results away from home, that’s fine, as long as they’re actually getting those results. Unfortunately for Koln, Soldo’s defensive setup wasn’t attractive to watch and they were still getting beaten. What’s the point of playing so defensively if you’re still going to concede and lose games?

Koln will be looking for a complete turnaround from their next manager. Attacking football is what the fans want, and it’s what the board wants. Even Lukas Podolski has spoken out about Koln’s lack of attacking ambition. Losing in style is far less embarrassing than sitting deep and conceding late.

Thomas Doll is being lined up as a possible replacement.

    Thomas Doll, the ol’ commie.

    Love the guy, but he’s not really the answer. Being a cheerleader & the players’ best friend only takes you so far. Unless VfB somehow have it in their blood to suck every fall & rally every spring. Which they probably do.
