Reports: Augsburg prepare to dismiss Herrlich, reappoint Marcus Weinzierl

Markus Weinzierl. As of late Sunday evening, FC Augsburg sporting director Stefan Reuter had not returned calls seeking comment on the status of head-coach Heiko Herrlich. The 54-year-old executive told journalists at footballing magazine Kicker that he wished to take the weekend to consider Herrlich’s future following an embarrassing loss on Friday night. 

Speculation begins to built that Reuter and club President Klaus Hofmann are busy finalizing terms with a replacement. The name of former Augsburg trainer Marcus Weinzierl is currently being traded.
