Gladbach appoint Farke as head coach

SoccerNews in Bundesliga 4 Jun 2022


Daniel Farke has been named the new head coach of Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Bundesliga club announced the appointment on Saturday, with Farke signing a deal until 2025.

The 45-year-old takes up his first head coach role in the Bundesliga having previously been charge at SV Lippstadt and Borussia Dortmund II.

He was hired by Norwich City in 2017, winning promotion to the Premier League twice at Carrow Road before being sacked in November with the Canaries again battling relegation in England’s top flight.

Farke was appointed head coach of Krasnodar in January but left just two months later after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Speaking to Gladbach’s website, sporting director Roland Virkus said: “In Daniel Farke, we have been able to sign a coach that fits perfectly to the path that we want to go down as a club.

“We are looking forward to tackling the challenges that lie ahead of us, together with him.” 

Assistants Christopher John and Edmund Riemer will join Farke at Borussia-Park.

Gladbach parted ways with previous coach Adi Hutter last month following a season that saw them finish 10th in the Bundesliga, their worst placing since 2010-11.
