Martin Schmidt has resigned as manager of Wolfsburg, just five months after replacing ex-Arsenal academy boss Andries Jonker in the role.

Schmidt, 50, cited "increasing public pressure" for the decision, with the club just one point above the Bundesliga relegation play-off place.

The Swiss was appointed in September and won six of his 22 games in charge.

The 2008-09 German champions let slip a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 to leaders Bayern Munich on Saturday.
