Soccer-Moenchengladbach sack coach Luhukay

BERLIN Sun Oct 5, 2008 5:16pm BST

BERLIN Oct 5 (Reuters) - Borussia Moenchengladbach sacked coach Jos Luhukay on Sunday, the day after a 2-1 defeat at home to Cologne left the club bottom of the table with just three points from seven matches.

The club said in a statement on its website that sporting director Christian Ziege would take over coaching duties on an interim basis.

"We're looking for a new coach but we're going to do it calmly and carefully," Ziege told www.borussia.de. "We're not going to make a hasty decision and I've therefore agreed to train the team for now."

Moenchengladbach were promoted back to the Bundesliga under Luhukay after winning division two last season. (Writing by Kevin Fylan; editing by Miles Evans)
