Uli Forte commented on his dismissal: “Of course I’m disappointed because I believed in being successful with Arminia. Even if it was only a few weeks, it was an intense time. I would have believed that I could turn things around together with everyone and find my way after the start of the season. The time off hurts, but as a long-time head coach I have to deal with it professionally. I wish the club and everyone who is rooting for Arminia all the best in the coming weeks and months.”

Sports Managing Director Samir Arabi justified the exemption: “We need a turnaround and that’s why we have to act according to our opinion. Taking into account all the impressions and discussions, we lacked the conviction that we could be successful in the existing constellation. We have overall responsibility for DSC Arminia. We thank Uli Forte for his commitment to Arminia Bielefeld. We wish him all the best in sport and in private.”

Bielefeld lost in the 2nd league against Sandhausen, Regensburg, Rostock and HSV and is in 17th place in the table. Now the club is pulling the ripcord.
