Official | Freiburg extend the contract of head coach Christian Streich

Freiburg have today announced the contract extension of head coach Christian Streich.

As is the case with Freiburg, the contract details remain undisclosed but the 55-year-old will be in charge for at least the 2021/22 Bundesliga season.

“We are very pleased to continue the cooperation with Christian beyond the current season,” said Freiburg board member Jochen Saier. “It’s valuable to consciously and repeatedly decide in favour of the joint project because it’s intense and challenging.

“We continue to feel a great desire for the joint path. The togetherness is constructive.”

Streich added: “I’m pleased about the recognition and trust that is placed in our work. The cooperation contains all the prerequisites that are important to continue on the path we have chosen.”

Freiburg sit eighth in the Bundesliga and are on an exceptional run, losing just two league games in 12, winning seven and drawing three.

They travel to Werder Bremen on Saturday as they look to compete for a next place in next season’s European competitions.
