Bundesliga: Kovac, Seoane and Co.: False start coaches under pressure

Bayer Leverkusen is still patient with Gerardo Seoane. The series of bankruptcies for the Werkself coach after the 0-1 draw at FC Bruges should not last much longer, otherwise he could soon be in a similar situation to Domenico Tedesco in Leipzig.

The RB coach had to make way for Marco Rose after a false start. In addition to Seoane, Niko Kovac in Wolfsburg, Enrico Maassen in Augsburg, Thomas Reis in Bochum and Frank Kramer at Schalke are also under pressure before the sixth Bundesliga matchday.

Bayer Leverkusen

Sports director Simon Rolfes insists like a mantra that Gerado Seoane doesn't have to worry about his job yet. But six defeats in seven competitive games is a devastating haul for such an ambitious club. And since Wednesday, Tedesco, who is on leave in Leipzig, has suddenly become Seoane's shadow man. Thomas Tuchel, who was released at Chelsea, is likely to be rather unrealistic. If nothing out of the ordinary happens, Seoane should still get the three games before the international break at Hertha BSC, against Atlético Madrid and Bremen. But he should definitely score points, otherwise the rumors will really pick up speed.

VfL Wolfsburg

Five Bundesliga games without a win, without a recognizable game idea, without a stable formation, without a functioning team: Niko Kovac's start in Wolfsburg failed. Especially in the areas that are particularly important to him and for which he was brought in in the summer, there is still no visible progress compared to the disappointing previous season. When the question came up in May: Can his predecessor Florian Kohfeldt stay or does he have to go, the club management did not agree. Managing director Jörg Schmadtke wanted to continue with the ex-coach, sports director Marcel Schäfer and the supervisory board did not want this. Everyone is now behind Kovac: "I'm not moving an inch away from it," Schmadtke told the "kicker".

FC Augsburg

Enrico Maassen is struggling in his first Bundesliga season. As the "kicker" claims to have learned, the FCA coach is already "under observation" before the game in Bremen. The reason for this is said to be Maassen's style of play, which is designed for modern, active football. Before his commitment, the table-16. on the other hand, defined for years by switching football. Maassen is still backed by the FCA officials. No wonder: After all, manager Stefan Reuter emphasized the coach's clear philosophy as a great benefit for the team. Should Maassen leave, it should also be tight for Reuter.

VfL Bochum

After zero points from five games, Thomas Reis is under a lot of pressure. There was no job guarantee for the 48-year-old before the derby against FC Schalke 04. "We are involved in competitive sports, so results are an important ingredient," said the new head of sports, Patrick Fabian, to the newspapers of the Funke media group (Thursday). The 34-year-old also emphasized: "However, we are not ready to make any decisions solely dependent on it." After the Schalke game you will "continue to see". According to media reports, Reis is said to have negotiated with the district rival in the summer. The coach himself recently denied this.

FC Schalke 04

Coach Frank Kramer has the backing of those responsible, and some fans have been very skeptical since he took office. Promoted Schalke have not yet won a game, but they only lost two games and are in 15th place. A win is expected against Bochum on Saturday (6.30 p.m. / Sky). If that doesn't work out or if experiences like the 1:6 swatter against 1. FC Union Berlin are repeated, things could also get tight for Kramer.
