VfB Stuttgart have released Tayfun Korkut from his job as head coach with immediate effect, the club have announced. The decision has been made following yesterday's 3-1 defeat to Hannover 96.
The club have also parted company with his co-coaches Ilija Aracic und Steven Cherundolo.
"The lack of sporting development during this season and the negative results have led us to take this step. Tayfun Korkut took over the team in a very difficult situation last season and secured the league early with an extraordinary race. We are very grateful to him and his two co-trainers Ilija Aracic and Steven Cherundolo," Stuttgart sporting director Michael Reschke said.
Until further notice, Andreas Hinkel, Matthias Schiffers (athletic trainer), goalkeeping coach Marco Langner and Andreas Schumacher (NLZ) will lead the training of the first team.
