Thomas Reis has been relieved of his duties as VfL Bochum coach with immediate effect after a terrible start to the season that has seen the club lose their first six Bundesliga games.
Bottom-placed Bochum’s last two defeats came against newly-promoted Werder Bremen (0-2) and Schalke 04 (1-3).

“It should be clear to everyone that this decision is not easy for us,” said Bochum managing director for sport Patrick Fabian.

“Thomas Reis has a connection to the club and the city that goes beyond the successful past three years.”

U19 coach Heiko Butscher takes charge on an interim basis.
