Brose bamberg seeks new sporting director

Two days after the bang of the basketball cup triumph, brose bamberg has followed up with another: the nine-time german champion has parted ways with sport director ginas rutkauskas. In addition, the coach of the 2. Liga proa strongly relegation-threatened farm team baunach young pikes, felix czerny, to take his hat off.

"Completion of the "personnel restructuring was the headline of the press release sent out by brose bamberg late tuesday evening. However, the two appointments did not come as a surprise. The lithuanian rutkauskas was criticized for months because of his squad planning for this season, czerny was the desolate performance of the last in the table recently in the basement derby at the penultimate in hanau to the doom. The game was lost with 55:88. While co-coach mario dugandzic and brose youth coordinator yassin idbihi will be in charge of the young pikes until further notice, a successor for rutkauskas has not yet been determined. "We are on the lookout for a new sporting director, but we do not see ourselves under time pressure, said media director thorsten vogt. The contract of the 56-year-old rutkauskas, who has been with the team since 1. September 2017 will not end until july 2020.

"During the current planning for the coming season, it has become clear that he and we have different views on the composition of the team. We want to return to our identity, to the ‘bamberg way’, which focuses on the development of young players, arne dirks justified the separation from rutkauskas in the press release. The managing director of brose bamberg was not available to provide further information to our newspaper.

"In bamberg, i already find good structures that i would like to develop further", rutkauskas had said when he took up his post. However, after the disastrous 2017/18 season and the premature separation from coach andrea trinchieri, things did not run smoothly for a long time this season either for the bambergers. The coach ainars bagatskis, who was chosen by rutkauskas last summer, only stayed in office until january. Stevan jelovac, a player they had both campaigned to sign, is no longer in the squad. Tyrese rice, whom rutkauskas brought to bamberg in the summer, also did not stand for the rejuvenation of the team proclaimed by supervisory board chairman michael stoschek. Therefore, the responsible persons have apparently decided to push the reorientation of the club without rutkauskas.

With the departure of the lithuanian, however, there is now a vacuum at brose bamberg as far as squad planning for the coming season is concerned. A new sporting director is not yet in sight, and whether federico perego will remain head coach beyond the end of the season is also still an open question.

What will become of nikos zisis?

Nikos zisis has been mentioned in recent weeks as a possible future sports director. The contract of the 35-year-old greek, who led the bamberger to their sixth cup win on sunday with an outstanding performance, expires at the end of the season. However, the team captain has always emphasized that he would like to stay on for another year as a player. Weeks ago, managing director dirks had already expressed interest in retaining zisis at brose in whatever capacity he chose.

Twelve defeats in a row

At baunacher, the coaching duo dugandzic/idbihi will probably handle the season, which will probably end with relegation after five years in the proa. Dugandzic had led the young pikes as successor of fabian villmeter in the past year with a furious ruckrunde still to the class preservation, however, this feat will probably not succeed to him this time. The baunach club has recently lost twelve times in a row and, six matchdays before the end of the season, is four wins behind fc schalke 04, which is in the 14th place. Place taken.
