Former Bayern Munich U-19 coach Danny Galm is sacked after just 13 games

His big break really didn’t last long, did it?

In the summer, then-coach of Bayern Munich’s U-19 side Danny Galm left the club via mutual consent to go manage relegated 2. Bundesliga side SV Sandhausen. It seemed like a phenomenal opportunity for the manager. But, after less than a third of the 3. Bundesliga season has been played, Sandhausen have confirmed, as captured by @CampusVid2, that Galm has now been fired from his position. This decision came immediately after a 2-2 draw with SC Verl.

SV Sandhausen sit in 11th position with 16 points after 12 games, having finished rock bottom of the 2. Bundesliga the season prior. In 2012-13, the club was promoted to the 2. Bundesliga for the very first time in the club’s history and it managed to stay in the division for an entire decade.

This perhaps would explain why sporting director Matthias Imhof decreed via SV Sandhausen’s official website that “our sporting goals are deeply in jeopardy”. The club’s expectations of promotion are not being met, though frankly it seems that such goals are far beyond the club’s current capabilities.

Not that this is Galm’s problem anymore. He will have to find a new job with ideally less trigger happy bosses.
