FC St. Pauli versus Würzburg: The basement summit

It never gets worse …

Würzburger Kickers against FC St. Pauli, 18th place against 17th place in the 2nd league. Both teams stand for records in the league – negative and, it is hard to believe, positive too.

The biggest difference between clubs is their trust in the coach.

Timo Schultz (43) is still in office at St. Pauli. In contrast, Würzburg already has the third trainer on the line. Promotion coach Michael Schiele (42 / now Sandhausen) was sacked after two match days. Successor Marco Antwerpen (49) was thrown out after five games. Ex-HSV assistant coach Bernhard Trares (55) is currently responsible.
