Misfiring champions Anderlecht sack coach Weiler

Misfiring champions Anderlecht sack coach Weiler”

"Rene Weiler won the 34th title for the club, reached the quarter-final of the Europa League, qualified Anderlecht to the group phase of the Champions League and stimulate the progression of young talents like Youri Tielemans and Leander Dendoncker", the club said in a statement.

"The current technical staff, composed of Nicolas Frutos, David Sesa and Thomas Binggeli, will take over - on an interim basis".

Meanwhile German club Wolfsburg have sacked Andries Jonker, a former Arsenal academy boss, and his assistant manager ex-Gunners player Fredrik Ljungberg.

The club have won only one of their last six games and are now in ninth position in the league.

Alaves are bottom of the Spanish top flight after losing their opening four games during which they failed to score a goal.

Anderlecht travel to Westerlo midweek for a cup tie, before returning to league duty away to Waasland-Beveren next Saturday in their last game before they welcome Celtic to the Constant Vanden Stock stadium.

Weiler guided the club to the Belgian First Division A title last season, also reaching the quarter-finals of the Europa League, but things have not gone to plan this term.

The Premier League lost its first manager of the season when Frank de Boer, 47, was sacked by Crystal Palace last week.

The disarray could prove to be good news for Celtic, who are still reeling from their 5-0 defeat to PSG last week.

The Belgian club confirmed Rene Weiler's departure in a statement on their website this morning.

"But that was last season and we need to push on this season".
