German clubside, Werder Bremen, have confirmed the resignation of the club manager, Markus Anfang and his assistant, Florian Junge after allegedly faking a COVID-19 vaccination certificate.
Anfang has previously refuted the allegations, but has now resigned from his position as the club’s manager due to the “extreme stress” of the investigations against him by the German authorities.
“Because of the extreme stress caused to the club, the team, my family and myself, I have decided to immediately step down from my role as head coach of Werder Bremen,”
“I requested that the club management dissolve my contract, a request they have granted.” Anfang, who had earlier denied any wrongdoing, said in a statement.
Werder Bremen currently sit in eighth place in the second tier of the German Bundesliga table following their relegation from the German top flight last season.
