"VfB Stuttgart have parted ways with head coach Bruno Labbadia as well as assistant coach Erdinc Soezer effective immediately," the club said.

A news conference was planned for later on Monday, it said.

Labbadia, who joined Stuttgart in late 2010 and saw his team lose 2-1 to Augsburg on Saturday, becomes the first coaching casualty of the season after only three matchdays.
