Augsburg trainer is live on TV and announces departure: Didnt know the club, now you

FC Augsburg trainer Markus Weinzierl surprised friend and foe on Saturday afternoon. After his team‘s match against Greuther Fürth (2-1), the German coach announced during a live interview that he was leaving. No one was aware of that yet.
In fact, the president of Augsburg previously drafted the new contract and was ready to commit to Weinzierl longer. During an interview with Sky Deutschland, the coach told me that he decided otherwise and was asked if the club knew about it yet. “No, but I’
m sure they‘ll find out when they watch this interview.”
Augsburg finished fourteenth in the Bundesliga this season and has a Dutchman in the ranks with Jeffrey Gouweleeuw. Alfred Finnbogason, who we remember from sc Heerenveen, also plays in the WWK Arena. So they will have to deal with a new trainer next season and probably didn’
t know that that would be the case.
