Juergen Roeber quitted Borussia Dortmund Monday as coach after serving only less than three months in the German Bundesliga club.

Former Bayern Munich coach Felix Magath and Hamburg ex-coach Thomas Doll were immediately seen as candidates to coach the struggling Borussia Dortmund club.

Roeber, 53, resigned after the Dortmund slipped to the verge of the relegation zone as the team beat Bayern Munich in his first match in charge in January and then lost six of their seven games.

He made the decision after a 2-0 defeat at Bochum on Saturday, which leaves Dortmund finishing in the 13th place in the Bundesliga, only one point off the relegation zone.

"In this difficult situation it is not about me but only the future of Borussia Dortmund, which is why I have offered my resignation," Roeber said.

"With the defeat to Bochum I finally came to the conclusion that not everyone in this team realizes the seriousness of the situation," he added.

The club confirmed his resignation with immediate effect, but did not say who will take the place of Roeber, who was appointed on December 19 after the dismissal of Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk.

Magath and Doll, both dismissed by their clubs earlier this year, are considered to be leading candidates.

Roeber had been expected to lead Dortmund until the end of the season before Thomas von Heesen was expected to take over.
