Hamburg have parted ways with head coach Bernd Hollerbach with immediate effect, the struggling Bundesliga club announced in an official statement on Monday.

A statement from Hamburg's Chief executive Frank Wettstein said: "We have intensively analysed and discussed the overall situation after the 6-0 defeat in Munich and concluded that we had to act to improve our chances of avoiding relegation". It was the 16th loss in the current Bundesliga season and leaves Hamburg on the 17th place, which is a direct relegation spot.

Hamburg now sit 17th place, second-bottom in the standings and in the Bundesliga's relegation zone. However, the "Rothosen" have been involved in the relegation battle for the past seasons.

Hollerbach, a former Hamburg midfielder, failed to win any of his seven league games in charge since taking over from the sacked Gisdol on January 22, falling to four losses and claiming only three points. Nevertheless, Hollerbach spent only seven games at the sidelines and collected just three points.

"He (Hollerbach) has never moaned and behaved impeccably".

Christian Titz, who has coached Hamburg's reserves this season, will coach the first team until the end of the season.
