Bundesliga strugglers Nurnberg have dropped three players from their squad to face Cologne at the weekend.
FCN coach Wolfgang Wolf reacted to the club's current plight by axing Slovakian international striker Robert Vittek (pictured), Tunisian international midfielder Adel Chedli and Russian Under-21 striker Ivan Saenko from his squad for Saturday's crucial Bundesliga clash.
Ç£I have decided to be fully open in my dealings with the players,Ç¥ Wolf said.
Ç£I will take an extremely close look at each of them and decide who is prepared to give his all for the club and who isn't.
"There will no longer be any room for pussy-footing around,Ç¥ he added.
Youngsters Chunly Pagenburg, Sebastian Szikal and Michael Kammermeyer have all been promoted from the club's amateur team as replacements for the sacked trio.
