“With this step, Markus and Florian have taken responsibility and aim to end the unrest that has surrounded the club in the last days. We respect their decision and will now begin the search for a new head coach,” said Werder Bremen sporting director Frank Baumann.
Assistant coach Danjiel Zenkovic will head up the Green-Whites’ coaching team in the dugout for Saturday night’s game against FC Schalke 04. “We informed the coaching staff and the team about the new situation this morning ahead of training. We have complete faith that Danjiel will be able to successfully prepare them for tonight’s game,” said Baumann. U19s head coach Christian Brand will step in as Zenkovic’s assistant coach for the match.
Due to the preparations for tonight’s meeting with FC Schalke 04, the Werder Bremen management will not be available for further comment until the match.
