Hans Meyer has been sacked by Nuremberg after just over two years at the club.
The 65-year-old, who came out of retirement in November 2005 to coach Nuremberg, was informed of the club’s decision late on Monday night. His dismissal comes just nine months after he led the club to success in the last season’s German Cup.
Meyer, and co-trainer Juergen Raab, have left with immediate effect.
Former Arminia Bielefeld coach Thomas van Heesen is set to replace Meyer, according to reports in Germany.
The decision to sack Meyer was taken “unanimously by the club president and the club’s advisory board,” said Nuremberg’s director of sport Martin Bader.
Meyer is the third Bundesliga coach to be fired this season after Petrik Sander was sacked by Energie Cottbus and Ernst Middendrop at Arminia Bielefeld.
