Good morning, Fear the Wall.
A relatively quiet Monday for BVB news ended with the surprise twist of a coaching dismissal. BVB II head coach Christian Preußer was dismissed yesterday, with a poor run of form for the second team seeing the coach’s head roll. Preußer’s sacking came somewhat as a surprise, on the back of a victory at the weekend, but a series of critical departures and poor form has led to the boss’s removal from his role.

Kehl said the latter, because it was a stupid question, but thank you Mr. Kehl for reaffirming to us that you are trying to create a successful organization.
