Brentford's Schade sacks agent after post about Union Berlin coach Eta

Brentford striker Kevin Schade has sacked his representative Maik Barthel following disparaging remarks made about Union Berlin's appointment of Marie-Louise Eta as interim assistant coach.

Earlier this month the German side parted ways with head coach Urs Fischer, with former U19s boss Marco Grote taking over on an interim basis, with Eta, who joined the U19s staff in the summer, moving to the first team with him.

Eta, who won the Champions League and three Bundesliga crowns with Turbine Potsdam as a player, is set to become the first female coach to appear on a men's Bundesliga bench when Union host Augsburg on November 25.

Barthel is the CEO of football players agency Eurosportsmanagement, and former representative of Barcelona forward Robert Lewandowski.
