Werder Bremen sporting director Frank Baumann has confirmed that Florian Kohfeldt will stay on as coach despite a poor run of form.

Coming off four Bundesliga defeats in a row, 14th-placed Werder crashed out of the DFB-Pokal on Friday after suffering a 1-2 loss to RB Leipzig after extra time in the semi-final.

Speaking after the game, Baumann underlined the club's desire to hold on to head coach Florian Kohfeldt, telling ARD:

"We showed a completely different face today.

"We have a big goal, which is to stay in the league, and I have the firm conviction that we can achieve this with Florian Kohfeldt."

Werder will face Bayer Leverkusen, Augsburg and Borussia Mönchengladbach in their remaining three Bundesliga fixtures.
