on Tuesday, Lars Frederiksen kicked in KIF Kolding in the light of a disappointing tenth place and just four wins in 19 attempts in the Mens Handball League.
varying results, however, was far from the only reason that the 48-year-old coach was fired - just two months after he extended his contract with the club,
According to multiple media - including JydskeVestkysten and the TV 2 Sport has spillertruppen been so dissatisfied with cheftræneren, that they have gone to management with these concerns, and the club's director has subsequently confirmed the lack of confidence from the squad.
TV 2 Sport refers to, among other things, a trend from the team's training camp on Lanzarote in the last moon, where the players think that Lars Frederiksen had more busy riding than to engage in the team.
Allegations that the ex-coach denies.
- So, I am actually angry. I will be pissed. Our management was down there - I invited them actually to take - and it was actually them, I was on the bike ride with, so that we might have a close relationship to each other.
- If the players have a perception that I just has been cycled off and haven't bothered to be at training camp - I am very frustrated and upset, if someone has got the view, says Lars Frederiksen in a larger interview with TV 2 SPORT.
the Club's new managing director, Christian Phillip, laid after he was fired, does not hide that it not only was the results that got him to give Lars Frederiksen silkesnoren.
- There has simply been a lack of trust from players to the coach, which could not be restored, and therefore we felt that this was the way to go, even if, from both management's and the board would have seen that it was something that could be addressed, which we also tried.
- There are tried to be reached out all the way around, but it here was the conclusion, says Christian Phillip, who just had been hired in five days when the dismissal was executed.
He will, however, do not talk about specific details - such as the training camp.
- The specific points I will not comment. Them, we keep internally of personal and human terms, says the director to JydskeVestkysten.
