The football club confirmed the news first shared by the German Bild newspaper -Luxembourgish coach Jeff Saibene will be leaving Arminia Bielefeld.

Saibene took over as coach for the team in April 2017 and saved them from relegation. The last season went well and the club moved up to the fourth spot. The 50 year old's contract was meant to last until 2021, but has been terminated early, as confirmed by the club.

The club is also terminating co-trainer Carsten Rump's contract. The cause for this is the 1-1 draw on Sunday against the second last team of the second Bundesliga, Sandhausen. This match became the 10th consecutive loss for Bielefeld, causing the club to fall down to the 14th spot in the league, only four spots ahead of relegation.
