Michael Köllner is no longer the coach of TSV 1860 Munich. The club announced this on Tuesday. The separation comes as no surprise after the 2-1 defeat against Dynamo Dresden on Monday. The ambitious lions have only won one of the past seven games.

“We not only see our goals for the season in acute danger and therefore feel compelled to act,” Günther Gorenzel is quoted as saying. In the announcement, TSV 1860 Munich announced that Michael Köllner is no longer the coach of the traditional club. He was released the day after the 2-1 defeat by Dynamo Dresden.

“We analyzed and discussed the overall development intensively. Despite many discussions and joint work on problem areas, the desired development of the team has not materialized and patterns that were already recognizable before the two-month winter break come to light again and again,” Gorenzel continued. The managing director will temporarily take over the coaching position in a double function and will be supported by the previous assistant coach Stefan Reisinger.

After a strong start to the season, 1860 Munich slipped down in the third division and is currently only in sixth place – not enough for the lions who want to move up. Only one win from the past seven games cost Köllner his job.
