The official website then went ahead to give the comment of CEO Karl-Heinz Rumminnige as to the reasons for the seasoned manager’s dismissal

"Our team’s performances since the start of the season have not met our expectations. The match in Paris clearly showed we had to take immediate action. Hasan Salihamidžić and I met Carlo today for full and frank discussions where we informed him of our decision."

Assistant manager Willy Sagnol takes over as manager and will take the team to face Hertha Berlin at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.
