District league football: Coach learns of dismissal and dismantles locker room

Niko Laukötter has to be able to do a lot as a football coach and as a craftsman. On the one hand, his team, the second team from 1. FC Bocholt, is fighting for promotion in the district league A. More precisely: his ex-team. According to the “Bocholter Borkener Volksblatt”, when Laukötter found out last Saturday that he would no longer be coach of Bocholt II next season, he resigned with immediate effect.

And not only that. According to the report in the local newspaper, large parts of the cabin furnishings are also said to have disappeared. Accordingly, Laukötter took over and financed the modernization of the cabin itself in the summer of 2020. Among other things, the players are said to have enjoyed personalized cupboards, fatigue pools and disco lights. But that's over now. Laukötter even removed the floor, as a photo in the newspaper report shows.

The cabin is “oversized for the district league A anyway,” said Manuel Jara, technical director of the club, to the “Bocholter-Borkener-Volksblatt”. You can still change clothes in it. It is questionable whether the team will actually do that at the next home game on Sunday. She didn't play in the away game last weekend - out of solidarity with her ex-coach, as the newspaper writes. So Laukötter couldn't have done a bad job as a coach. The current condition of the cabin shows that he tends to be thorough.
