AGF fires coach as teams agree to TV deal

Assistant coach, Jesper Fredberg, has been named the club’s interim coach

AGF Aarhus sacked its coach Peter Sørensen following a 1-4 loss to rivals Aab Aalborg in the Danish cup yesterday evening.

The AGF chief executive, Jan Christensen, said that poor results in the Superliga and the heavy cup loss at home yesterday convinced the club’s board to look at other options.

“We greatly regret to have to end the co-operation with Peter Sørensen,” Christensen wrote on the club website. “Our results have been unsatisfactory over a long period of time, and we evaluated that the company and club are best served by a coaching change.”
