Magere 18 points in 38 games were in the past shortened season in the DEL, a pünktchen has brought Krefeld after four games in the current playing time. Too little. The responsible persons of the del club reacted early and vacated coach Donatelli. This was announced by the de-penalty on Thursday.
The 55-year-old American had taken the permanent crisis team of the league only in January. Since then, the penguins lost 27 of 31 del games. Donatelli had stressed at the end of the past season, in the new season to play the championship.
In fact, the nightless Rhine countries are still in the table cellar this season with just one point. Only the Schwenninger Wild Wings started with a point of five games worse. He has taken over the team in a critical phase and we were optimistic despite the sporting performance in the last season, that in this directional season we will make a significant step forward, said Krefelds Managing Director Sergej Saveljev.
A point – and without Donatelli
The so far only point of the Krefelder succeeded on Tuesday at 2: 3 after extension of the title favorite Adler Mannheim. However, Donatelli was not there because of a gastrointestinal infect. For the time being, the previous co-trainer Igor Sacharine should coach the penguins.
