German coach Christoph Daum is to leave Belgian side Club Brugge at the end of the season and not see out a contract running until June next year, the club said today.

Daum, 59, only took the reins last November, replacing sacked Dutchman Adrie Koster but cited personal reasons for wanting to go back to Germany.

Bruges have qualified under Daum for the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League by finishing second in the Belgian table.
