Bundesliga side Augsburg have sacked coach Dirk Schuster and his coaching staff after a disappointing start to the season.

The club says analysis of the current sporting situation revealed “differing views on the continued sporting orientation and way that Augsburg wants to play football.” Schuster, along with assistant coaches Sascha Franz and Frank Steinmetz, were released “with immediate effect.”

Youth coach Manuel Baum was to take over an interim basis.

Augsburg is 13th in the 18-team Bundesliga with three wins in 14 games. The club lost at Hamburger SV on Saturday and had drawn its previous three matches.
