ANDERLECHT, Belgium (AP) - Belgian champion Anderlecht has parted company with coach Rene Weiler following a disappointing start to the season.

The Swiss coach led Anderlecht to the Belgian title and the quarterfinals of the Europa League last season in his first year in charge but the club has won only two of its seven league games so far.

Anderlecht was also beaten 3-0 by Bayern Munich in its opening Champions League group game last week. It leaves the team third in a group that also includes Paris Saint-Germain and Celtic.

Anderlecht says it “thanks Rene Weiler for his commitment, his services and his professionalism.”
