Berlin, March 7 (IANS) German football club Eintracht Frankfurt has announced that it has replaced head coach Armin Veh with immediate effect as the side is struggling in the Bundesliga.

The club’s board and supervisory committee on Sunday agreed to release Armin Veh from his duties with immediate effect. Assistant coach Reiner Geyer will lead the training before Frankfurt present a new coach soon, reports Xinhua.

“The sacking was really hard as Armin Veh had our confidence till the end. Nevertheless, we need a new coach who can give the team a new impetus in the relegation battle. Eintracht Frankfurt thanks Armin Veh for his work,” Frankfurt chairman Heribert Bruchhagen told the club’ s official homepage.
