Baumann confirms Kohfeldt will stay on as Werder coach

Despite a poor run of results, Florian Kohfeldt's job as Werder Bremen coach is safe, according to sporting director Frank Baumann.
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.
