Hoffenheim sacked coach Alfred Schreuder over differences in how they think the team should develop, the Bundesliga club said on Tuesday.
“In important issues of detail, we had different opinions so that the collaboration past the season end made no sense,” sports director Alexander Rosen said in a statement.
“Unfortunately, we could not agree on a common path for the future of the team,” Schreuder concurred. “I regret this development but it is not unusual to have different opinions in your professional life.”
Schreuder, who had a contract till 2022, had arrived from Ajax Amsterdam at the start of the season. Now, just four games before the season’s end, he has been fired.
His brother and assistant Dick Schreuder will also leave according to.
Hoffenheim is seventh on 43 points and fighting for next season’s Europa League spot. Other Club coaches would steer the side through the remaining games.
