Leverkusen sack coach Hyypia after Hamburg loss

Reuters, Saturday 5 Apr 2014

Bayern Leverkusen dismissed coach Sami Hyypia on Saturday, a day after the club slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Hamburg SV that left them with just one win from their last nine league games.

"After a lot of thought and because of the ongoing crisis we reached the conclusion that a change at this point could help us urgently turn things around," Leverkusen CEO Michael Schade said in a statement.

The former Finland international will be replaced by interim coach Sascha Lewandowski.
