SV Werder Bremen have parted company with coach Viktor Skrypnyk, with U23 coach Alexander Nouri set to take over the first team on an interim basis.
Werder have lost all of their three Bundesliga matches of the season so far and also crashed out of the DFB Pokal to third division club Sportfreunde Lotte.
“We have decided to take this step because after the game in Gladbach we were not convinced that with the existing (coaching) constellation we could promptly bring about a positive change,” said Bremen sporting director Frank Baumann.
“Nouri is a temporary solution. We will explore our options, and have clear requirements. We won’t be giving any names.”
“We would like to thank Viktor and his assistant coaches for their work in recent years.”
Skrypnyk took over the Bremen first team in October 2014
