“No longer the strength”: Ex-Dortmund player Frei resigns from Aarau

Former Dortmund Bundesliga striker Alex Frei has terminated his contract as coach of FC Aarau with immediate effect and intends to take some time out. The third-placed team in the second Swiss football league made the announcement on Monday. "In recent weeks and months, I have realized that I no longer have the strength and energy to fully pursue my passion as a coach," the 44-year-old explained in a statement from the club. Club boss Sandro Burki explained that they would like to thank Frei "for his valuable and always highly professional work. We are losing a highly esteemed person with whom we have had a great time."

Frei was a striker for Borussia Dortmund from 2006 to 2009. In 83 competitive matches for BVB, he scored 37 goals and provided 20 assists.
