Cottbus coach gets dreaded vote of confidence

Energie Cottbus have insisted coach Bojan Prasnikar's job is safe despite a disappointing start to the season.

The Bundesliga club have taken just one point from their opening three league games and Prasnikar was widely touted to become the first managerial casualty of the season.

However, club president Ulrich Lepsch has backed the Slovenian and hinted that it is the players who should take more responsibility.

He told Kicker magazine: 'I can only repeat it every single day: He will stay even if we are relegated.

'I get the feeling the players are only looking for excuses.

'The coach pressures and supports the team as he sees fit and I trust him 100%. Now it is up to the team.

'The fact we have not scored a goal yet has nothing to do with the tactics.

'The quality is there. Last year we beat Hannover 5-1 and Bayern 2-0, so we can score goals, and we have kept the same players and even strengthened the squad. It's just a mental problem.'
