Bundesliga outfit Buyer Leverkusen have sacked manager Roger Schmidt after three years in charge with a successor set to be named in the near-future according to an official statement on the club’s website.

Leverkusen are enduring their worst start to the season for the first time in 14 years under 49-year-old Schmidt and the German club’s shareholders’ committee and supervisory board decided to let Schmidt go on the club’s recommendation after Saturday’s 6-2 loss at Borussia Dortmund.

It was Leverkusen’s third straight defeat in all competitions, including the 4-2 home loss to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

Leverkusen are ninth in the Bundesliga, 11 points behind Hoffenheim in the last Champions League spot.
