Official | Borussia Mönchengladbach dismiss Daniel Farke

Borussia Mönchengladbach have today announced the dismissal of head coach Daniel Farke.

Speaking on the decision, sporting director Roland Virkus said: “After several intensive discussions, Daniel Farke and the club have come to the decision to go our separate ways. We would like to thank Daniel and his team for the work they have done.”

Farke was only appointed last summer but finished seventh, seven points behind Bayer Leverkusen who occupy the final European spot. Although just four defeats at home this season, only Bochum (9) and Hertha Berlin (8) picked up fewer points than Borussia Mönchengladbach (10) away from home this season.

In addition to Farke, his assistants Edmund Riemer, Christopher John and Chris Domogalla will also leave the club.

It appears to be a summer of change at Gladbach. With Farke gone, Marcus Thuram, Ramy Bensebaini and Lars Stindl will all leave the club this summer when their contracts expire. Manu Koné is also likely to leave the club for around €40m with Liverpool showing concrete interest in the French midfielder.

Gladbach under-23 coach Eugen Polanski was a potential candidate to replace Farke but it appears that former Bayer Leverkusen head coach Gerardo Seoane is now the favourite after Die Fohlen held a meeting with the Swiss tactician. Another option would be Thomas Letsch but after securing Bundesliga status for Bochum, it’s unlikely that the Dutchman will leave.
