VfL Wolfsburg verbally initiates the dismissal of Kovac

VfL Wolfsburg simply can’t win anymore. Things were going well against Augsburg at first, but then the referee made a puzzling decision. The game ends and the managing director verbally prepares to dismiss coach Kovac.

Niko Kovac finally has to worry about his job as coach of VfL Wolfsburg. His team lost 1:3 (1:1) against FC Augsburg and continued the negative trend of the past few months. The fact that she couldn’t stop it was also due to the referee.

The form curves of both teams could hardly have been different. While VfL has been without a win for ten games, the guests have won their last three games in a row. There was nothing to see at first. Wolfsburg dominated. The fact that it was only 1-0 shortly before half-time thanks to Wimmer’s goal (9th) was great luck for Augsburg. And this is exactly what they should keep.

The same Wimmer lost the ball and knocked down his opponent Mabu on the edge of the penalty area when he tried to get it back. Referee Gerach showed the Austrian red, which was not only harsh but also wrong. Wimmer was by no means the last man, Lacroix would have been there without any problem. Why the video referee didn’t intervene was a mystery.

“No red card, that’s the deciding factor in the game,” said Arnold from Wolfsburg. Referee Gerach himself spoke of a “tough decision”. He can represent them, but he also understands the displeasure of the people of Wolfsburg.

The fact that Maier’s subsequent free kick was deflected into the goal to make it 1-1 (45th + 2) fits the picture of this messed up VfL season just as much as the rest of the game. Being outnumbered, the Wolves resigned themselves to their fate, Jakic scored twice more for Augsburg (61st/79th).

“Then we will make decisions,” says Schäfer

VfL is increasingly in danger of relegation, and in the final phase there were timid calls of “Kovac out” from the fan block.

The club should now comply with this demand. It is difficult to interpret the statements made by managing director Marcel Schäfer after the final whistle in any other way.

He “didn’t want to have a personnel discussion five minutes after the game,” but instead wanted to discuss the game “internally first. And then we will make decisions,” said Schäfer on Sky: “At some point we simply have to deliver the results. And we haven’t had that in the last few weeks or today.”

Kovac said: “I know how it works.” He is grown up enough to know “that we don’t have enough points at the moment.”
