1. FC Union Berlin have confirmed the club and Helmut Schulte have parted company. The 60-year-old, who was the head of the first-team department at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei, reached an amicable agreement with the club’s management.
“We enjoyed working with Helmut Schulte and would like to thank him for his commitment to the club over the past few years. Together we were convinced over the last few weeks that a new start for our first-team department was the right decision at the end of the season. I wish Helmut Schulte all the best for his future and I’m pleased that we’ll remain in a positive relationship with him,” said club president, Dirk Zingler.
“I was happy to work for this special club. After two such difficult seasons, I think the timing for a new impetus is right. This applies to the club, as well as, me personally. I wish Union every success in the future,” added the departing Schulte.
Schulte has been head of the club’s first-team department since February 2016 and leaves with immediate effect.
