In my function, however, the well-being of the club is up to the top, and we have unfortunately arrived in a situation in which a change in the position of the chief trainer was no longer averting, said Zoran Basic, Managing Director of Kühbauer. In addition to Bauer, Co-Trainer Manfred Nasal was also free.

Rapid is only seventh in the Bundesliga table. Lastly, the Europa League participant lost a weak presentation at Hoffberger AC with 1: 4. Thomas Hickersberger and Steffen Hoffmann are supposed to conduct the training of the professionals.
