Hanover coach Neururer pays price for poor start
BERLIN, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Peter Neururer of Hanover 96 became the first coaching casualty of the Bundesliga season on Wednesday, just three matches into the campaign.
Neururer did not take training on Wednesday morning, instead going in for talks with club bosses. Hanover said in a statement that at the meeting he had offered to leave.
Hanover lie bottom with no points and 11 goals conceded in their three games.
Neururer took over at Hanover in November last year, after the club had won just one of their previous eight league games.
The coach kept the club clear of relegation danger and secured 12th place in the end-of-season table.
