Former Arsenal man Jens Lehmann has been dismissed by FC Augsburg.
Jens Lehmann had been working at the club as assistant coach after being allowed to leave Arsenal in the post-Wenger shakeup.
The former Mainz and Wolfsburg man, Martin Schmidt has been named as their new coach.
Augsburg currently sit in 15th place, just outside the Bundesliga relegation places, although they do have a four-point cushion over VfB Stuttgart in 16th.
“Over the last weeks and months, we have done everything we can to master our difficult situation together,” managing director Stefan Reuter was quoted as saying.
“After the 0:4 against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and the extremely fluctuating achievements before however, the conviction was missing that we will create this in the long run in the previous constellation.”
In otherwords, the powers that be didn’t believe that Jens & co could turn things around going forward after watching their side not only lose 4-0 against Hoffenheim but also go out of the DfB cup in extra time against RB Leipzig.
Augsburg have 25 points from 28 league games, scoring 37 but conceding 54.
