Freiburg Relegated

Five year association with Germany's top flight ends as SCF open talks for new Head Coach

By Mathias Neumann

The 2014/15 Bundesliga season threw up a thrilling relegation battle with clubs from Borussia Dortmund (my team) to SC Paderborn. It was certainly one of the most topsy turvy relegation battles in recent German footballing history. For clubs like Borussia Dortmund, they managed to turn their season around with a brilliant 2nd half, other weren't so lucky. Take Hannover 96 for example, after 17 Matchdays there were in a comfortable 8th position but then failed to win a game from Matchday 16 up until their Matchday 33 victory over Augsburg.

Frieburg occupied 18th place in the table when the winter break came but looked to have escaped when they placed 14th with 4 games to play. A late win over champions Bayern in the penultimate game of the season was enough to drag them up to 14th again but after claimed their 2nd victory of 2015 on the last day of the season SC Freiburg were relegated.

The departure of Christian Streich as Head Coach has left several big names in the hat for the job.

The favourites for the job are;

Recently resigned Schalke04 manager Roberto Di Matteo. 3/1

Former Stuttgart manager Huub Stevens. 5/1

And another former Schalke manager Jens Keller. 8/1

Outsiders for the job are;

Roberto Martinez 15/1

Jurgen Klopp (20/1)

Michael Laudrup 25/1

Sebastian Kehl 50/1
