Struggling Bundesliga side Ingolstadt fired Markus Kauczinski as coach on Sunday.

Ingolstadt, which has only two points from ten games, says the decision was taken “after intensive talks” following the latest home defeat to Augsburg on Saturday.

Sporting director Harald Gaertner says, “We came to the decision that it’s best for Ingolstadt to make a fresh start. The decision is very difficult for us because we don’t only value Markus Kauczinski for his coaching ability, but also personally.”

The club says it hopes to have a new coach in charge by Tuesday.

Ingolstadt, which was founded in 2004, secured promotion to the Bundesliga in 2015 by winning the second division.
