Der VfL Wolfsburg hat die enttäuschende Saison 2021/22 als Tabellenzwölfter abgeschlossen – weit entfernt von den eigenen Ansprüchen. Nun machten die Wölfe nach ihrer Saisonanalyse den dritten Trainerwechsel in der Bundesliga unmittelbar nach dem 34. Spieltag perfekt: Wie Markus Weinzierl in Augsburg und Adi Hütter in Mönchengladbach wird auch Florian Kohfeldt ab Juli nicht mehr im Amt sein. Nach kicker-Informationen ist Kohfeldts Aus besiegelt.

Als mögliche Kandidaten gelten unter anderem Matthias Jaissle (RB Salzburg), Daniel Farke (zuletzt Krasnodar) und Sandro Schwarz (Dynamo Moskau), der auch bei Hertha BSC im Gespräch ist. Auch der Name von Bruno Labbadia, der von Februar 2018 bis Juni 2019 den VfL betreute und seit seinem Abschied aus Berlin im Januar 2021 vereinslos ist, kursiert.

Auch Labbadia wird als Nachfolger gehandelt

Im vergangenen Oktober hatte Kohfeldt den Posten von Mark van Bommel übernommen, eine klare Verbesserung ergab sich seitdem aber nicht. Lange mussten Fans und Verantwortliche gar um den Klassenerhalt bangen. Das 2:2 im Saisonfinale gegen den FC Bayern München, das vierte Spiel ohne Niederlage in Serie, versöhnte nur bedingt.

Mittelfeldchef Maximilian Arnold hatte nach dem Remis gegen den Rekordmeister noch über Kohfeldt gesagt: “Er hat die richtigen Schlüsse gezogen und uns auf die wichtigen Spiele eingeschworen.” Für die Führungsetage der Wolfsburger waren die Darbietungen unter dem ehemaligen Bremer Cheftrainer aber offenbar nicht verheißungsvoll genug, um eine Zukunft mit Kohfeldt zu sehen.

Am 26. Oktober 2021 hatte der 39-Jährige das Kommando in Niedersachsen übernommen, drei Pflichtspielsiege in Folge ließen Hoffnungen auf eine unbeschwerte Saison keimen. Doch Wolfsburg zeigte sich danach viel zu wankelmütig. Exemplarisch dafür stehen die Spieltage 28 bis 31: Einem 0:3 in Augsburg folgte ein 4:0 gegen Bielefeld, diesem folgte wiederum ein 1:6 in Dortmund und ein 5:0 gegen Mainz.

Lewandowski hits 50-goal mark as Bayern sign off season with draw at Wolfsburg

Champions Bayern Munich surrendered a two-goal lead as their season ended on a sour note following a 2-2 draw with Wolfsburg.

Julian Nagelsmann was keen to get his side back to winning ways after a shock defeat to Mainz and draw with Stuttgart, but despite a bright start they couldn’t get over the line.

Josip Stanisic’s first Bundesliga goal gave the visitors a deserved lead after 17 minutes, the Croatian defender’s looping header from Joshua Kimmich’s corner beating goalkeeper Koen Casteels.

Lewandowski confirms intention to leave Bayern Munich

3 HOURS AGO

Lewandowski put speculation about his future to one side to double their advantage five minutes before the break, heading in Thomas Muller’s devilish cross for his 35th league goal of the season – and 50th of the campaign overall.

Out of nowhere, Jonas Wind halved the deficit on the stroke of half-time with a fine effort that arrowed into the bottom corner, a goal that proved their catalyst for an unlikely comeback. And just before the hour-mark Wolfsburg restored parity, provider Max Kruse getting on the scoresheet as he poked home Micky van de Ven’s cross.

Leroy Sane spurned a golden opportunity at the death to restore Bayern’s lead but that would have been unfair on Wolfsburg, who were the better side after the break and fully deserving of their point.

The result, coupled with Borussia Dortmund’s victory over Hertha Berlin, means Bayern Munich finish eight points above their nearest challenger. Wolfsburg, who had been sucked into a relegation battle at one stage, climb a place to secure 12th position.

TALKING POINT – Could this have been Lewandowski’s farewell?

News emerged on Saturday that Lewandowski “would like to try something new” (according to Bayern Munich’s director of sport, Hasan Salhamidzic) and if this proves to be his farewell appearance, it’s fitting that he registered a landmark 50th goal of the season – his second-best return during a trophy-laden eight-year stint at the club.

He finishes the term as the top goal scorer in Bundesliga for the seventh time, equalling the record set by Gerd Muller.

Sadio Mane is reportedly Bayern’s top target to replace him, but with 344 goals in just 374 games, it’s going to be an impossible void to fill.

AS IT HAPPENED

MAN OF THE MATCH – Josip Stanisic (Bayern Munich)

The youngster is making an impression on Nagelsmann, contributing both in attack and defence. He was in the right place at the right time to head Bayern in front and his positional awareness in defence was evident too as he broke up a number of dangerous Wolfsburg moves.

PLAYER RATINGS

Bayern Munich: Neuer 6, Stanisic 8*, Upamecano 6, Hernandez 6, Davies 6, Kimmich 7, Goretzka 6, Musiala 7, Muller 7, Gnabry 6, Lewandowski 7.. Subs: Choupo-Moting 5, Richards N/A, Sane 5, Fruchtl N/A, Vidovic N/A.

KEY MOMENTS

17′ – GOAL! WOLFSBURG 0-1 BAYERN MUNICH (JOSIP STANISIC): Stanisic heads Bayern into the lead, marking a rare start with a goal! He climbs highest to meet Kimmich’s corner and his looping header nestles into the top corner!

40′ – GOAL! WOLFSBURG 0-2 BAYERN MUNICH (ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI): There it is! Lewandowski’s inevitable goal comes five minutes before half-time. The deadly duo combine – Muller whips in a devilish cross into the heart of Wolfsburg penalty area, Lewandowski outmuscles Lacroix and arrows his header into the bottom corner for his 35th league goal of the season.

45′ – GOAL! WOLFSBURG 1-2 BAYERN MUNICH (JONAS WIND):One back for the hosts! Deficit halved! And what a finish it was too! Kruse drills a low cross into the box, Wind takes a touch to set himself up for the shot and he unleashes a bullet into the bottom corner.

58′ – GOAL! WOLFSBURG 2-2 BAYERN MUNICH (MAX KRUSE): They’ve done it! Wolfsburg are level! It’s a deserved goal for Kruse, creator of their first, as he is unmarked to tap home van de Ven’s wicked low cross! Bayern’s defence fell asleep and have been punished.

Lewandowski hits 50-goal mark as Bayern sign off season with draw at Wolfsburg

Champions Bayern Munich surrendered a two-goal lead as their season ended on a sour note following a 2-2 draw with Wolfsburg.

Julian Nagelsmann was keen to get his side back to winning ways after a shock defeat to Mainz and draw with Stuttgart, but despite a bright start they couldn’t get over the line.

Josip Stanisic’s first Bundesliga goal gave the visitors a deserved lead after 17 minutes, the Croatian defender’s looping header from Joshua Kimmich’s corner beating goalkeeper Koen Casteels.

Lewandowski put speculation about his future to one side to double their advantage five minutes before the break, heading in Thomas Muller’s devilish cross for his 35th league goal of the season – and 50th of the campaign overall.

Out of nowhere, Jonas Wind halved the deficit on the stroke of half-time with a fine effort that arrowed into the bottom corner, a goal that proved their catalyst for an unlikely comeback. And just before the hour-mark Wolfsburg restored parity, provider Max Kruse getting on the scoresheet as he poked home Micky van de Ven’s cross.

Leroy Sane spurned a golden opportunity at the death to restore Bayern’s lead but that would have been unfair on Wolfsburg, who were the better side after the break and fully deserving of their point.

The result, coupled with Borussia Dortmund’s victory over Hertha Berlin, means Bayern Munich finish eight points above their nearest challenger. Wolfsburg, who had been sucked into a relegation battle at one stage, climb a place to secure 12th position.

TALKING POINT – Could this have been Lewandowski’s farewell?

News emerged on Saturday that Lewandowski “would like to try something new” (according to Bayern Munich’s director of sport, Hasan Salhamidzic) and if this proves to be his farewell appearance, it’s fitting that he registered a landmark 50th goal of the season – his second-best return during a trophy-laden eight-year stint at the club.

He finishes the term as the top goal scorer in Bundesliga for the seventh time, equalling the record set by Gerd Muller.

Sadio Mane is reportedly Bayern’s top target to replace him, but with 344 goals in just 374 games, it’s going to be an impossible void to fill.

AS IT HAPPENED

MAN OF THE MATCH – Josip Stanisic (Bayern Munich)

The youngster is making an impression on Nagelsmann, contributing both in attack and defence. He was in the right place at the right time to head Bayern in front and his positional awareness in defence was evident too as he broke up a number of dangerous Wolfsburg moves.

45′ – GOAL! WOLFSBURG 1-2 BAYERN MUNICH (JONAS WIND):One back for the hosts! Deficit halved! And what a finish it was too! Kruse drills a low cross into the box, Wind takes a touch to set himself up for the shot and he unleashes a bullet into the bottom corner.

58′ – GOAL! WOLFSBURG 2-2 BAYERN MUNICH (MAX KRUSE): They’ve done it! Wolfsburg are level! It’s a deserved goal for Kruse, creator of their first, as he is unmarked to tap home van de Ven’s wicked low cross! Bayern’s defence fell asleep and have been punished.
