Stoeger steps down as Borussia Dortmund coach

Stoeger steps down as Borussia Dortmund coach

Borussia Dortmund head coach Peter Stoeger will leave the former Bundesliga champions at the end of the 2017-2018 season, the German top division club have announced.

The northern club, whose game was interrupted for 15 minutes by fans throwing flares onto the pitch near the end, finished second-bottom on 31 points, two behind VfL Wolfsburg, which beat Cologne 4-1 and face second-tier Holstein Kiel in a relegation playoff.

The 52-year-old's final match in charge was Saturday's 3-1 loss to Hoffenheim, which left the Die Borussen hanging on for fourth place.

Dortmund travel to Hoffenheim on the last day of the Bundesliga season this Saturday knowing they only need to avoid defeat at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena to clinch third place.

Stoeger stabilized the team after taking over from the fired Peter Bosz in December but came in for criticism after some lackluster performances.

The Revenge Body host's decision to stay with Thompson has reportedly caused some tension within her family. The Good American founder announced the name of her baby girl in a sweet Instagram post on April 16.

"This was my last contracted game for Dortmund, which we decided together some time ago", he was quoted as saying by ESPN. "It is still important for this club that we are in the Champions League", he said. The easiest way to get that is with a new coach.

"The game today was a reflection of what has happened at Dortmund throughout the season".

RB Leipzig's Jean-Kevin Augustin scored twice in their 6-2 demolition of host Hertha Berlin as it joined Leverkusen in the Europa League.

Victory for the Bavarians in the Cup final would mean seventh-placed Stuttgart could compete in the second qualifying round of the Europa League.
