Babbel takes reins as Stuttgart sack Veh

November 23, 2008

Stuttgart have sacked coach Armin Veh after Saturday's 4-1 defeat at Wolfsburg, a result which left the 2007 Bundesliga winners without a win in five matches.

Veh pays the price for a dramatic dip in form which culminated in his side's drop to 11th in the Bundesliga table, 13 points behind leaders Hoffenheim.

The club have appointed Markus Babbel to take temporary charge of the team in the build-up to Thursday's UEFA Cup tie in Genoa against Sampdoria.
