Mainz have sacked manager Achim Beierlorzer just 10 days into the Bundesliga season.

His dismissal comes in a week in which Mainz players refused to train after forward Adam Szalai was suspended and told to find a new club.

Reports say Szalai asked for the team’s outstanding salaries – held back during the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic – to be paid.

The club denied the reports, saying he had been cut for “sporting reasons”.

Mainz then suffered a 4-1 defeat by Stuttgart on Saturday.

Beierlorzer, 52, had been in charge of Mainz since November 2019 and will be replaced in the interim by assistant coach Jan-Moritz Lichte.

“I am disappointed with the club’s decision,” said Beierlorzer. “Nevertheless, I wish Mainz and the team all the best for the future.”
