WARSAW, Poland. October 4 (PSN) – Legia Warsaw have parted ways with Henning Berg as the First Team manager.
The dismissal was announced after a 2:2 away draw to Gornik Zabrze on Sunday.
”The existing model of working with the manager has exhausted and no longer guaranteed accomplishing goals we set for this season in terms of sport results and development of Legia,” club president Boguslaw Lesnodorski explained on the Legia webpage.
”With Henning Berg as the manager Legia Warsaw won the Polish championship in 2014, and the Polish Cup in 2015. The team also competed successfully in UEFA Europa League 2014-15.” Lesnodorski summed up.
“We are parting company with mutual respect, remembering that the result achieved last season in European cups will be beneficial to Legia Warsaw position in European competitions in the years to come,”
Along with Berg, the entire Legia coaching staff have also been let go with the exception of goalkeeping coach Krzysztof Dowhan who has been with the club since 2001.
Former Dynamo Moscow coach Stanislav Cherchesov is rumoured to be the Norwegian’s successor at the capital club.
