Official | Pirmin Schwegler returns to Hoffenheim

Hoffenheim have today announced the appointment of former player, Pirmin Schwegler, as the club’s Head of Licensed Football and Football Cooperations. The 35-year-old returns to the club from Bayern Munich.

“Compared to other Bundesliga clubs, Hoffenheim has had very streamlined organisational structure for years. The tasks that have to be completed internally and externally have grown significantly and continuously during this timeframe,” said Alexander Rosen. “We will not inflate our structure in the future, but we will adapt it to a moderate degree in order to meet the requirements facing a modern and ambitious professional football club.” 

Schwegler, who has represented Switzerland 14 times, played 64 games across all competitions for Hoffenheim between 2014 and 2017 before joining Hannover.

Upon his retirement from professional football in 2020, Schwegler took up a scouting role at Bayern Munich just three months later and was made the Rekordmeister’s chief scout the following year, a position he’s held since July 2021 until his return to Hoffenheim today.

Schwegler will work closely alongside Sporting Director Rosen.

Hoffenheim currently find themselves down in 11th after 15 Bundesliga games, but are just seven points behind Borussia Dortmund, who occupy the UEFA Europa Conference League position.

TSG resume their league campaign against Union Berlin on January 21.
