Bundesliga strugglers Hamburger SV have sacked coach Bernd Hollerbach and replaced him with under-21 coach Christian Titz.
Hollerbach only replaced Markus Gisdol in late January, but failed to win any of his seven games in charge.
The sacking comes after Saturday’s 6-0 defeat at Bayern Munich, which left Hamburg seven points adrift of safety.
Hamburg have never been relegated from the Bundesliga.
A statement from Hamburg’s Chief executive Frank Wettstein said: “We have intensively analysed and discussed the overall situation after the 6-0 defeat in Munich and concluded that we had to act to improve our chances of avoiding relegation.
“He (Hollerbach) has never moaned and behaved impeccably. But the bottom line was that there was no significant improvement and he failed to gain positive results.”
