The second division with ambitions for promotion reacts to being twelve points behind in first place: Daniel Bierofka has to go.
Daniel Bierofka has been the coach of FC Wacker since this season. Innsbruck are fighting to return to the Bundesliga.
The international break is a very dangerous time for coaches. Clubs in a crisis like to use this quieter phase to give fresh impetus with a new head coach.
This is also the case in Innsbruck at FC Wacker. The second division is not in a real crisis, but cannot meet the high expectations with an expensive squad. Most recently, the home game against BW Linz was lost 0: 1. The targeted ascent (for the second time in a row) is moving far away.
After ten laps, Wacker is only sixth, twelve points behind leaders Austria Lustenau.
Leave of absence on Thursday
According to KURIER information, this gap is too big to continue working with coach Daniel Bierofka. The German is on leave from the traditional club.
The Tyrolean daily also writes about Bierofka's end. However, the club should only officially express itself after the 42-year-old has said goodbye to the team.
The TT report: “Most recently, disagreements within the team became known, with Okan Aydin there should have been an open dispute.”
Ferdinand Feldhofer, Joachim Standfest and Robert Ibertsberger are named as successor candidates. According to KURIER information, Feldhofer is also under discussion with a first division club abroad.
What is certain is that Bierofka's failure must also be accused of Alfred Hörtnagl. After Maurizio Jacobacci, the sports director went wrong for the second time when he invented a trainer.
