Cologne have sacked Achim Beierlorzer after less than five months in charge.

The 51-year-old joined from 2. Bundesliga side Jahn Regensburg in July but has overseen a torrid start to the 2019-20 campaign following Cologne’s promotion from the second tier.

He managed just two wins from his opening 11 Bundesliga games at the helm, with Friday’s 2-1 home defeat to Hoffenheim proving the final straw for the club’s hierarchy.

Beierlorzer told the club’s official website: “I regret that I wasn’t able to bring Cologne the desired sporting success in the four months I was here. I felt completely at home at this great club. In a good working position, I was able to work with the team constructively. For the rest of the season, I wish the team and the club all the best.”

Sporting director Frank Aehlig added: “I regret that we’ve had to take this step, because we value Achim Beierlorzer very highly. However, the hoped-for sporting success hasn’t been achieved so far and it’s our job to do everything to ensure we achieve our goals.”
