Korkut was appointed manager in January 2014 and helped the side to avoid relegation last season.

Hannover are back in a relegation scrap, just two points above the drop zone in 15th place.

The German side hope to announce a new manager before the next game.

“Hannover on Monday have put head coach Tayfun Korkut on administrative leave,” the club said in a statement that was quoted by the Guardian.

The 40-year-old coach became the first Turkish international to take over a Bundesliga club when he was appointed Hannover manager last season.

It is the first senior coaching job for the former Fenerbahçe midfielder who previously worked as a youth team coach at Real Sociedad, Hoffenheim and VfB Stuttgart.
