Jupp Heynckes hass resigned as coach of Borussia Monchengladbach, the day after a goalless draw with Nuremberg left the club without a win in 13 matches.
“We all regret this move very much,” Moenchengladbach president Rolf Koenigs said in a statement announcing the decision. “He’ll always be a Borussia man.”
Tuesday’s result left Gladbach third from bottom with 16 points from 19 matches.
Heynckes, the 61-year-old former Germany international, has only been in charge since May 2006, but with the club without a win since October, he has decided to stand down.
Heynckes began his coaching career at Moenchengladbach before moving to Bayern Munich, where he won the Bundesliga title in 1989 and 1990. His greatest success was in leading Real Madrid to the European Cup in 1998.
Assistant coach Jos Luhukay will take charge of the team for Saturday’s Bundesliga game at Arminia Bielefeld.
