Michael Henke named caretaker Ingolstadt boss

Michael Henke has been named interim head coach of Ingolstadt following the departure of Markus Kauczinski on Sunday.

Henke, a member of the backroom staff under Kauczinski, will take temporary charge of the Bavarian club as the search continues for a permanent successor.

Kauczinski was a summer arrival but was dismissed after a 10-game winless start to the season which saw them pick up just two points in the Bundesliga, currently sitting 17th in the table.

In a statement on the club's official website, managing director Harald Gartner admitted they were in no rush to find a long-term replacement

"We are working hard to find the right coach for us," he said. "Until then, we have found an optimal solution with Michael Henke, because he knows the team and the circumstances."
