Thomas Schaaf says that he is not worried about losing his coaching job at Werder Bremen despite their recent poor run of form.

Werder Bremen coach Thomas Schaaf has admitted that he is under pressure following his side's 1-0 defeat to Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

The loss was Bremen's third in a row and left them seven points above the relegation zone in 14th.

"It is not up to me to decide," Schaaf told reporters when asked whether he could be sacked.

"We have officials in this club who in the end have to judge me. I try to do my job."

However, Bremen's general manager Thomas Eichin has said that the club have no plan to fire Schaaf.

"We have to show what we can do on the pitch and not during the week," he said. "Thomas Schaaf will work on this."

Schaaf has been the Bremen coach since 1999.
