Bundesliga team Mainz has announced that they have hired Achim Beierlorzer as their new who was just fired by his former club Cologne 9 days ago.
Mainz is currently placed 16th in the league sitting just one position above Achim’s former team FC Köln. Beierlorzer has been tasked with keeping the Bundesliga team out of relegation so as to avoid dropping out of the top division for the first time in 11 Seasons.
Ironically, Mainz last win in the Bundesliga was in October when they beat FC Köln who at the time was coached by Beierlorzer himself. They went on to fire their coach Sandro Schwarz on 10 November after a dismal performance that saw the team losing to Leipzig 8-0.
Beierlorzer who was hired to coach FC Köln on 1 July 2019 was contracted to work there until 2021, but due to his dismal track record at the club, achieving only 2 wins, 2 draws and 9 loses in FC Köln’s last 13 appearances, the team decided to end his contract abrupty and look for someone else to rescue them out of their current relegation spot.
In an statement released by Beierlorzer about his remaarkably quick bounce-back into the Budesliga being sacked by former club FC Köln, he said :
“in this business things can sometimes move quickly, especially if it’s just a good fit”
