The 2. Bundesliga side cite the reason for the decision is the public prosecutors’ investigations into the two coaches and the ensuing unrest surrounding the club.
“Because of the extreme stress caused to the club, the team, my family and myself, I have decided to immediately step down from my role as head coach of Werder Bremen,” said Anfang.
“I requested that the club management dissolve my contract, a request they have granted. I wish Werder all the success in the world both for today’s game against Schalke and for the future.”
According to Kicker, Anfang allegedly forged a vaccination certificate.
