Sport For family reasons: Assistant coach Kelly leaves Düsseldorf

Apparently the 22-year-old has little desire for games in the 2. Bundesliga and none at all for the coach Uwe Rösler. However, leaving will not be easy. Striker Bernard Tekpetey was used for Düsseldorf only nine times last season, only once over the full 90 minutes.
Assistant assistant coach Rob Kelly has left Fortuna Düsseldorf for family reasons. Uwe Rösler's assistant asked the club to terminate his contract, which the Rhinelanders complied with.
Rob Kelly (left) will no longer act alongside Uwe Rösler. "We very much regret that Rob Kelly is forced to take this step in the coaching and function team and the players. But of course we respect his decision. I appreciate Rob as a football professional, but above all as a person. Over the years of cooperation he became a very good friend of mine. Not only me, but the entire Fortuna family wishes him the best for the future, "said Rösler.
Kelly had also accompanied Rösler at his previous stations. The assistant coach came to Fortuna Düsseldorf on February 7, 2020 and has supported the coaching team with his expertise ever since.
"For family reasons only, I was forced to ask the club to cancel my contract. I felt very comfortable at Fortuna from the first to the last second, and I am very grateful to the club for being able to express myself in the very intense months I was also able to thank Uwe Rösler and the entire trainer and function team for their trusting cooperation, "said Kelly.
