Werder Bremen's general manager Klaus Allofs insists under-fire coach Thomas Schaaf retains the full support of the club's board.

Schaaf guided Bremen to UEFA Champions League qualification last season, but the team are waging a fight for Bundesliga survival this term.

A 4-0 thrashing away to Hamburg at the weekend left Bremen just one point above the relegation zone following a run of one win in nine league games.

There have been calls for Schaaf to be replaced before the end of the season, but Allofs says there are no plans for a change of coach.

Disappointed

"Everyone is disappointed right now and anyone is able to understand that," Allofs told Norddeutscher Rundfunk.

"The manager has the full support from the club and its authorities, there are no contradictions."

Allofs also stressed Schaaf would not step down either, adding: "This is not an issue.

"Looking at how Thomas Schaaf is working on our planning for the new season ahead, you are getting that impression.

"No one would work that hard on a new team if he is eager to quit his job."
