Wolfsburg have announced Nico Kovac as their new head coach.
The former Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayern Munich manager has replaced Florian Kohfeldt after a disappointing season which saw Wolves finish 12th place.
Kovac has signed a contract that will see him operate as head coach until 2025. His duties will officially begin on July 1st.
Speaking on his recent appointment, the 50-year-old said: “The talks with Jörg Schmadtke and Marcel Schäfer were very good and trusting and convinced me to accept this exciting challenge. The anticipation of making a difference and being successful together with my coaching team in Wolfsburg is great, the team has enormous potential and the conditions for optimal and successful work are there.”
In a statement, Wolfsburg’s head of sport Jörg Schmadtke explained: “When filling the coaching position, it was important to me that we not only find someone quickly, but above all engage a coach who can develop VfL Wolfsburg in the long term and bring it forward. So I’m very pleased that we were able to convince Niko of our path and win him over for VfL.”
