Bad news for ESV Kaufbeuren. Trainer Rob Pallin told ESVK Michael Kreitl in a personal conversation on Monday afternoon that he would like to return to the USA with his family for personal reasons. Since the recognized reasons for the Allgäu DEL2 Club are absolutely understandable, Rob Pallin’s ESV has been complied with and has agreed to the termination of the existing contract.
ESVK managing director Michael Kreitl said: “Yesterday we were of course shocked when Rob Pallin asked to terminate his contract for personal reasons. From the two results over the weekend, I think we were on the right track with our team. The time of separation is of course far from ideal for us and also difficult to accept. But we will handle it as always and make the best of what is now current. Of course we started looking for a successor for Rob Pallin and we already have one or the other idea. But it is also clear that.
It is currently planned that assistant trainer Sebastian Osterloh will lead the Joker training units from Thursday. Depending on how quickly a solution can now be found for the head coaching position, it will then be found at short notice what the solution will look like for the upcoming games at the weekend.
The ESV Kaufbeuren wishes Rob Pallin and his family all the best for their future.
