Bizarre managerial change at Werder Bremen as Anfang resigns amid fake Covid-19 vaccine certificate allegations

 The 2.Bundesliga club's former head coach is the subject of an investigation by prosecutors in Germany

Werder Bremen head coach Markus Anfang and his assistant Florian Junge have stepped down from their positions at the 2.Bundesliga club amid allegations of faking Covid-19 vaccine certificates.

Anfang was revealed to be the subject of an investigation by public prosecutors in Germany on Thursday after it was alleged he had used forged documents proclaiming that he had been vaccinated.

The 47-year-old had previously denied the claims but has now resigned from his role at Weserstadion ahead of Saturday's game with Schalke, citing the "stress" of the current situation.
