FC Ingolstadt are struggling for survival in the 2nd Bundesliga. As coach Jens Keller did not lead Schanzer on the road to success, he has to come back after only a few months.
Second-division FC Ingolstadt pulled the emergency brake again in an increasingly desperate fight against relegation and dismissed coach Jens Keller. This announced the bottom of the table after a supervisory board meeting. His assistant Thomas Stickroth also has to go with Keller. The successors will be Thomas Oral and Michael Henke, who were already on the sideline from 2011 to 2013 for the FCI.
Thomas Linke should also help the mission to relegation. Linke, who has worked for the club again as an external consultant since November, will be helping as a "sports director." Oral, Henke and Linke are employed until the summer.

Former coach Keller had taken over the Schanzer only on December 2, before the 16th round. Under his leadership, there were only three wins and two draws in twelve games, the last five games were lost.
Keller was behind Stefan Leitl, Alexander Nouri and interim coach Roberto Pätzold, already the fourth coach of the old Bundesliga this season confused.
