Ex-Ghana midfielder Otto Addo has been appointed as a caretaker coach of Bundesliga side Hamburg following the dismissal of Thorsten Fink.
Addo has been appointed alongside Rodolfo Cardoso to prepare the side for their next league match against Werder Bremen on Saturday.
The 38-year-old had been in charge of the U19 side of the Red Shorts since July this year.
Fink was relieved of his duties on Tuesday morning three days after losing 6-2 to Borrusia Dortmund.
“We were not convincing in our games and we could not recognise any consistency,” Hamburg Sporting director Oliver Kreuzer said.
“I had a very good relationship with Thorsten and I hope it remains that way, but given the current situation, we decided yesterday to part ways.
“Rodolfo Cardoso and Otto Addo will coach the side this afternoon until further notice.”
Hamburg have lost three of their first five games of the new Bundesliga season as one point separates them from the relegation zone.
