(GSM) – After entering the winter break second from bottom in the Bundesliga, Nurnberg have parted ways with manager Michael Oenning.

Oenning, 44, guided Nurnberg to promotion last season with a second place finish in the German second division, but they have lost four straight games to leave them on just 12 points from 17 games this season.

The final straw for club management was Sunday’s 3-0 defeat at the hands of Koln, a team that had managed to score just seven goals in 16 matches prior to Sunday’s game.

The Nurnberg job was Oenning’s first as a first team manager in Germany, though he had spent spells in the training staffs of Borussia Moenchengladbach, Wolfsburg and Bochum.

Nurnberg president Franz Schafer wished Oenning well at a press conference on Monday but did not announce if a replacement or caretaker manager had been named.

The Bundesliga is in its winter break until 15 January.
