RB Leipzig have sacked head coach Domenico Tedesco following their 4-1 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk in their UEFA Champions League opener on Tuesday night.
Leipzig currently sit 11th in the Bundesliga, winning just one of their opening five games. Their most recent outing in the league saw them lost 4-0 to Eintracht Frankfurt, meaning they have shipped eight goals in their last two games.
Tedesco had been in the position at Leipzig for less than a year, guiding the club to DFB-Pokal success as well as the Europa League semi-final last season. His two assistants have left alongside him as the German outfit look for his replacement.
