Borussia Monchengladbach coach Hans Meyer has dismissed three players from his first-team squad.
The 66-year-old returned to the five-time Bundesliga winners in October for a second spell in charge after his previous four-year stint came to an end in 2003.
Meyer has had three games to assess the crop of players he has inherited and has taken decisive action in banishing Sascha Rosler, Soumalia Coulibaly and Sharvel Touma to train with the Under-23 team and declared that the trio had no future at the club.
He said: "I don't want to continue working with players who are dissatisfied because they are not in the starting line-up or because they know we are not planning with them.
"I want to spend the next few weeks working hard with a smaller group of players to guarantee that we have the best possible preparation for the upcoming games."
