The located on last 18th place in the standings of the Bundesliga Hannover 96 will change his coach Thomas Schaaf in the event of relegation in the second division.
`Green-Black` have only 17 points and falling behind 10 of Hoffenheim and Eintracht Frankfurt, which are in front of them seven rounds before the end of the Championship. So the fate of Schaaf seems clear.
After intensive and constructive talks in the past few weeks, Hanover and the coach Thomas Schaaf have agreed to continue their joint work, if it comes to relegation in the second division, says the official announcement of the club. Schaaf was appointed to his post over winter break, but failed to stop the collapse and to bring new energy to the team. Since the beginning of his period, the team has one win and nine losses, and Saturday against Hamburger SV plays a crucial match. To defeat Hannover is forgiving with the elite, and a victory would increase though their hopes for survival.
`Both parties are of the opinion that in the second division a fresh start would be with a much larger effect.` commented on the club`s Executive Director Martin Bader.
