Rescue the goal of recovery: Dresden separates from Kauczinski

Dresden separates from Kauczinski

Dresden suffers a major setback in the return to league two project. At home, the Saxons lose significantly against Halle and fall from the exit ranks. The association then takes action and hopes for the famous new impulses.

Third division Dynamo Dresden released a day after the sensitive home bankruptcy against Halle FC coach Markus Kauczinski. The Saxons communicate that. The two assistant coaches Heiko Scholz and Ferydoon Zandi initially look after the team. The decision was not an easy one for the club, said sports director Ralf Becker. But they want to “set new impulses in the most important phase of the season to achieve our goal”. Dresden wants to return after relegation to the second division.

The traditional club had slipped to fourth place after the 3-0 draw against Halle the day before. Two counters are missing on relegation rank three. In addition, Dresden has the worse goal difference compared to 1860 Munich. In second place, which entitles to direct promotion to second division, four points are missing. However, there are still four game days to go, and Dynamo even have two catch-up games left, so ideally they can still score 18 points. The leader of the league is Hansa Rostock with 65 points – six points more than Dresden.

“The development recently was not good,” Becker is quoted further by the club. The eight-time GDR champion has only got one point from the past four games. In the coming week, Dresden will play its two catch-up games against MSV Duisburg and KFC Uerdingen. “There are now six games left for us in which we absolutely want to achieve our goal of promotion to the second division,” said Becker. “For this we will now mobilize all our strength again.”

Kauczinski took over the coaching position in the Saxon capital in December 2019. The club had ended the season as bottom of the table in league two and had to move into the third division.
