Boris Schommers is no longer the coach of 1. FC Kaiserslautern. The Red Devils announced this on Tuesday. The false start in the third division was fatal for the 41-year-old.
Third division club 1. FC Kaiserslautern reacted to the false start of the season and said goodbye to coach Boris Schommers. The four-time champion started the season with two league defeats and an out in the first main round of the DFB Cup. The end for Schommers (41) and his assistant Kevin McKenna (40) was already in sight in recent days. It is still open who will succeed him on the sidelines.
“This decision is very difficult for all of us, especially as Boris Schommers and Kevin McKenna have put enormous energy and strength into their work and the FCK in recent months,” said Soeren Oliver Voigt, CEO of FCK: “We had a lot of internal discussions. “About the direction of the FCK in the sporting field, especially the way we want to play football in the 3rd division. We did not come to the common denominator between all involved, so the club unanimously decided to bring about a change in this situation.”
Schommers took over the coaching function at Betzenberg in September 2019 and was on the sidelines for the Red Devils in 40 competitive matches. Following the planned opening of insolvency proceedings and the entry of a highly indebted regional group of investors into the FCK, the highly traditional club is aiming to return to the second division.
