Hamburg coach Armin Veh will leave the Bundesliga club at the end of the season.
The 50-year-old has a contract until June 2012, but has said he will leave at the end of the season, by mutual consent.
“Given the situation at the club right now, I am not going to be here any more next year,” said Veh, citing a break-down in communication with the club’s senior bosses as his reason for leaving.
“I have never experienced a situation like I faced here.
“You can’t work in these conditions. These things are not about football, Hamburg is in a dangerous situation.”
The club are experiencing a difficult time with president Bernd Hoffmann receiving a vote of no confidence at the weekend.
Veh, who won the German league title with Stuttgart in 2007, took charge in May 2010, but his record of 11 wins, four draws and ten defeats from 25 games this season has not satisfied his bosses.
“This is actually a great club, but people are working individually and not as a unit,” Veh added.
“Otherwise, things would really happen here.”
