Sandro Schwarz (photo) is no longer coach of the Bundesliga 1.FSV Mainz 05. The Mainz shared the separation of the 41-year-old on Sunday morning after the 2: 3 against Union Berlin. The decision was made by mutual agreement. The 41-year-old's contract originally ran until June 30, 2022, and he was in office since May 2017, making him one of the longest serving league instructors in the league.
Update 3:33 pm: Assistant coach Jan-Moritz Lichte will be in charge of FSV Mainz 05 for the time being following the departure of coach Sandro Schwarz. This said Sport Board Rouven SchrOder on Sunday at a brief convened press conference of the relegation-threatened Bundesliga in Bruchwegstadion. At the same time he emphasized: "We will look for a new head coach." SchrOder spoke of a very emotional farewell. "Sandro lived and loved the club and the players," he said. Therefore, Schwarz did not resign himself. "It's true that we set the pace as an association," said the manager.
The Mainz responded to the athletic misery this season. With nine points from eleven games, the 05ers are currently on the relegation place. Most recently, the Schwarz team lost in addition to newly promoted Union 0: 8 against RB Leipzig – the highest bankruptcy of Mainz club history.
Contrary to all the mechanisms of the business in the second half of 2016/17, Sport Board member Rouven SchrOder had stuck to Black predecessor Martin Schmidt despite a deep crisis – and was thus successful. Mainz did not dismount. After losing to the Union, Schroeder still seemed to be holding on to Black, saying, "I do not want to make a plea every week. Sandro Schwarz is our coach and we will scrutinize with him critically. "

Black is a native of Mainz and played once as a professional in the Nullfunfern. As a coach, he also looked after the U19 and the second team. The club had returned to the Bundesliga in 2009, but recently gave the impression of being unable to cope with the relegation battle. Captain Daniel Brosinski had spoken after the game against Berlin of a "total failure of everyone in the square". After the final whistle, it was difficult for a few fans to capture some angry fans who had climbed over the fence.
