German football club Schalke on Sunday fired their first team's management following Saturday's 5-1 defeat against Stuttgart.
Axar.az reports that in a statement, Schalke said the loss in the German Bundesliga forced the Gelsenkirchen club board to dismiss senior team manager Christian Gross and his assistant Rainer Widmayer, first-team coordinator Sascha Riether, and fitness coach Werner Leuthard.
Head of Sport and Communication Jochen Schneider was also removed.
Chairman Jens Buchta said the sackings came due to the Royal Blues' consecutive losses against Borussia Dortmund by 4-0, and Stuttgart 5-1.
"Following the two disappointing displays against Dortmund and Stuttgart, these decisions were unavoidable," he said.
