Union Berlin recently announced their farewell to coach Urs Fischer after a series of 13 defeats in the last 14 matches. This poor performance caused the German capital team to fall to the bottom of the Bundesliga and Champions League tables and was eliminated in the German National Cup.
In his farewell message, club President Dirk Zingler said: “In our five and a half years of working together, we have developed a mutual respect and trust, which has kept us in constant communication. opinions openly and honestly. We came to the conclusion together that it was time to take a different path.”
Fischer has been in charge of the club since 2018 and in his first season, he brought Union Berlin to play in the Bundesliga. The Swiss strategist then brought the team to three consecutive finishes in the top 7. Last season, they even got a ticket to the Champions League when they finished fourth.
He was the one who was voted “Coach of the Year” by the Bundesliga last season and is loved by many fans in Köpenick.
The search for Fischer’s replacement has now begun, but Union Berlin U19 team coach Marco Grote will temporarily take over the hot seat. Former Osnabrück coach will be supported by assistant Marie-Louise Eta.
