FC Nuremberg fires coach Michael Oenning

BY foxsports • December 21, 2009

FC Nuremberg has fired coach Michael Oenning after a dismal run of form that left the club in 17th place in the 18-team Bundesliga.

Nuremberg announced the dismissal Monday, two days after losing to FC Cologne 3-0 - the team's fourth straight game without scoring a goal.

Oenning was hired in August 2008 and won promotion with the Bavarian club last season. However, Nuremberg went into the winter break with only 12 points from 17 games.

There was no immediate word on a replacement.
