Despite the last seven defeats in a row, the relegation-threatened Bundesliga club Werder Bremen is holding onto coach Florian Kohfeldt. Sports director Frank Baumann expressed his confidence in the 38-year-old on Monday afternoon.
“We see Florian and the team have a responsibility to show a clear reaction in the cup against Leipzig on Friday and to turn the trend with a view to the last Bundesliga games,” said Baumann in one Communication from the association quoted.
For Baumann, the decisive factors were “Florian’s qualities as a coach, his will to tackle the task and the absolutely intact relationship between Florian, the team and the entire staff.”
On Sunday Baumann had announced talks about the future of Kohfeldt, a decision should be made by Tuesday at the latest and thus well before the semi-finals of the DFB Cup on Friday at RB Leipzig. Kohfeldt, who has been in office for three and a half years, had only held Werder through relegation to the Bundesliga in the preseason.
