Official | Christian Streich extends Freiburg contract

Freiburg have confirmed that Christian Streich and his coaching team have extended their contracts at the club. The length of the contract is likely to be a year, but Freiburg usually doesn’t reveal this information. 

On his contract extension, Streich said: “It’s nice that we still enjoy coming into the office every day and have an open and honest relationship. Life here is really special and I’m pleased that I will be able to carry on working for this club together with my fellow coaches.” The 57-year-old has been a part of Freiburg since 1995 but has been the head coach at the club since 2011. Streich has been in charge for over 430 games. 

Streich has been key in the rise of Freiburg helping them go from mid-table to competing for European places. While last season, he led Freiburg to their first-ever DFB Pokal final where they lost on penalties to RB Leipzig. 

Jochen Saier also commented on Streich’s extension: “We’re delighted that we will continue working with our current coaching team. Christian Streich and his colleagues work extremely hard every day and give their best to ensure our team is developing. We’re continuing to do things our way and this successful and valued partnership will go into next season now as well.”

The other members of the coaching team to extend their contracts are Patrick Baier who is the longest reigning assistant coach in the Bundesliga, Florian Bruns, Julian Schuster, Lars Voßler (all assistant coaches), Michael Müller (goalkeeping coach), Daniel Wolf, Maximilian Kessler (both fitness coaches)

Freiburg are currently fifth in the Bundesliga after a 2-1 win against Hoffenheim at the weekend. They are also in the DFB Pokal quarter-finals and are 1-0 down in their Europa League round-of-16 game against Juventus.
