Jesse Marsch, the former manager of the club, was dismissed on February 6. In the interim, the under-21s coach, Michael Skubala, has been appointed as caretaker for the last three matches.
Unfortunately, their most recent game on Saturday resulted in a 1-0 loss to Everton, a team also facing relegation. This defeat has left the club in a precarious position, as they are now only two points away from the relegation zone.
