Stuttgart slump continues in 3rd loss from 3 under new coach
STUTTGART, Germany (AP) — Stuttgart’s hopes of a revival under new coach Markus Weinzierl took another blow in a 3-0 loss at home to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga on Friday.
It ensured Weinzierl’s third defeat in three games since taking over from the sacked Tayfun Korkut. His side has conceded 11 and scored none in this time.
The 43-year-old Weinzierl was appointed by Stuttgart following the 3-1 defeat to previously bottom Hannover, which left the side bottom after seven games.
The side is still bottom on goal difference from promoted Fortuna Duesseldorf ahead of the rest of the 10th round. Duesseldorf has lost its last five games in the league but faces Borussia Moenchengladbach on Sunday.
