The work filled me with great joy. I thank the club for giving me the chance to work in the Bundesliga,” Schreuder said in a statement on the club’s official website.“Unfortunately, we were unable to agree on a common way of how we would like to lead Hoffenheim into the future. I regret this development.“It’s not uncommon in professional life to have different opinions. You then have to be honest with each other and draw the appropriate consequences.”Schreuder leaves Hoffenheim in seventh in the Bundesiga, two points off a Europa League spot, with four games remaining. Under the 47-year-old, the team earned eight points from five games against mostly relegation-threatened opponents since the Bundesliga restarted on May 16 in empty stadiums amid the coronavirus pandemic.Schreuder rejoined Hoffenheim as coach last year after having previously been assistant coach at the club and at Ajax.The Dutchman had a contract running until the end of the 2021-22 season.Hoffenheim said it will have a team of five coaches overseeing the first team for its remaining four Bundesliga matches of the season, starting with Leipzig at home on Friday, and hasn’t nominated an interim head coach.Tags: BundesligaHoffenheimManager Alfred SchreuderSackinglast_img
