BREMEN: Bundesliga club Werder Bremen has fired coach Alexander Nouri after the team failed to win any of its first 10 league games this season.
Bremen parted with Nouri and assistant Markus Feldhoff on Monday, a day after Bremen lost 3-0 at home against Augsburg. The club says under-23 coach Florian Kohfeldt will take charge of the team ahead of Friday's league match against Eintracht Frankfurt. There was no immediate word on a long-term replacement.
Nouri guided Bremen to an eighth-place finish last season after taking over in September 2016 with the team at the bottom of the Bundesliga.
Bremen is currently 17th in the 18-team league. The team has only five points from 10 games and has scored only three goals.
