Third division club FC Ingolstadt has reacted to its series of defeats and parted ways with coach Guerino Capretti. As the club announced on Tuesday, those responsible felt “forced” to take this step after six bankruptcies in a row. Capretti (41) had only won one game in ten games since taking office in early February.
“Due to the sporting downturn, we have to act to score points as quickly as possible and get the team back on the road to success,” said Managing Director Dietmar Beiersdorfer.
The FCI is “currently in a key moment in which we will do everything we can to get the curve around so as not to get further into the relegation vortex.”
On Monday, Ingolstadt lost 3-1 to 1860 Munich. As tables-14. the lead over the first relegation zone is still six points.
For the time being, the previous assistant coach Maniyel Nergiz will take over the responsibility. The FCI wants to “report promptly” about a long-term solution for the coaching position.
