At the post-match press conference, Dutt himself had raised questions about his future and, one day later, having conducted the training and then exchanged views with the VfL management and CEO Hans-Peter Villis, he reaffirmed himself.
Robin Dutt did a lot for VfL Bochum 1848. He took over the team in a very difficult situation and led the team to relegation. The same team did not then in the second half of the 2018/19 season, also due to a large number of injured players, retrieved the performance that was expected of her.
At this time of the game a change in the team was made, knowing that this can lead to difficult situations. VfL grants the required time for this development process. From club side Robin Dutt, as he himself has confirmed, always had the confidence.
Because the coach after four match days completely surprisingly even publicly questioned, personal conversations were required.

The Bureau invited Robin Dutt, after having exchanged views with the management and the Chairman of the Executive Board, to have a personal conversation with the entire panel in order to hear his point of view and reasons for the resignation from the club. He was not available for this meeting this Monday morning.
In the overall context, the VfL comes to the conclusion that the team would not follow the coach after the events of the weekend and his public statement no longer unreservedly. At this point, VfL has come to the conclusion that the team needs a new impetus.
The VfL Bochum 1848 thanks Robin Dutt for the good cooperation and will inform about the further procedure shortly. "
