Moenchengladbach fires coach Frontzeck

Struggling Borussia Moenchengladbach has fired coach Michael

Frontzeck.

Frontzeck was dismissed after the team’s latest defeat – a 3-1

loss at St. Pauli on Saturday – left it seven points short of

safety at the bottom of the table.

Sports director Max Eberl says ”we had to rethink the

situation.”

Moenchengladbach has only 16 points from 22 matches. It has

conceded 56 goals – easily the division’s worst defensive

record.

There was no immediate word on a successor.
