Berlin (AFP) – Borussia Moenchengladbach head coach Dieter Hecking will step down at the end of this season, the club announced on Tuesday.
“We will not extend our cooperation with Dieter Hecking beyond the summer and we will go into the new season with a new head coach,” the club said in a tweet.
Hecking, 54, has been in charge of Gladbach since December 2016, and led them to ninth-place finishes in each of his first two seasons.
After some brilliant early-season performances, Gladbach had spent much of the current campaign in the top three, but a recent run of bad form has seen them drop to fifth.
They have won just one of their last seven games, and suffered a humiliating 3-1 defeat to local rivals Fortuna Duesseldorf last weekend.
