Eintracht Braunschweig general manager Marc Arnold has assured manager Torsten Lieberknecht that his position is secure at the club.
Following their first win in the Bundesliga at local rivals VfL Wolfsburg, Arnold believes that Lieberknecht is the right man to lead Die Löwen in their relegation battle.
"If we should go down at the end of the season, Torsten Lieberknecht will be in charge of the first-team squad. One hundred per cent," he told Norddeutscher Rundfunk.
"We will continue with what we think is the right path for a club of our size. It's still a long way left to avoid relegation and it will be tough."
Arnold has provided further support for Lieberknecht by suggesting they will be active in the January transfer window.
They are keen to build on a summer transfer window that saw eight players join the club, including former Norwich and Gillingham striker Simeon Jackson.
"We have signed players during winter transfer periods in recent years and it's a fact we will consider signing further players for the first-team squad during this year's window," he added.
Braunschweig are currently bottom of the Bundesliga on goal difference, level on four points with SC Freiburg.
