Berlin - VfB Stuttgart coach Armin Veh resigned on Monday, a day after the former Bundesliga champions were beaten 1-0 by Augsburg to remain anchored to the foot of the table.

Veh, who led Stuttgart to the Bundesliga title in 2007, had returned this season, but after three straight losses without scoring a goal he decided to pull the plug on his second stint at the club.

"It was a difficult step to take because the club and team are close to my heart but I was convinced it was the right one," Veh said in a club statement.

"The team is better than the position in the table but nine points from 12 games are too few."
