Borusssia Dortmund have sacked manager, Peter Bosz, after just a win in their last 13 games across all competition. Bosz, who has been replaced by Peter Stoger, was sacked after another poor performance saw them lose 2-1 to Werder Bremen on Saturday.
“Borussia Dortmund have today ended their cooperation with head coach Peter Bosz appointed Peter Stöger as his successor,” said Hans Joachim Watzke, club’s Chief Executive Officer,
Watzke said the decision to sack the Dutchman came as a result of the ‘club’s current sporting plight’ and was a very ‘difficult’ one.
“I would like to thank personally Bosz, and emphasise how difficult this decision has been for us,” Watzke added.

Under the charge of the former Ajax boss, Dortmund claimed just three points from a possible 24 in the Bundesliga, a streak that has seen them drop to seventh on the log.
This is despite a brilliant start to life at Signal Iduna Park, which saw Dortmund top of the league after a run of six consecutive wins without conceding a goal, a Bundesliga record.
However, after Dortmund also exited the Champions League, failing to win any of their games in the group phase, the loss to Bremen was to be Bosz’s last match in charge.
The 54-year-old has been replaced by Stoger, who was also sacked days ago by another Bundesliga side, FC Cologne, who are currently rooted at the bottom of the championship.
“I am very happy [to be] coach of this team, and to be in this stadium,” Stoger said.
Stoger will be assisted by Manfred Schmidt and Jorg Heinrich.
