After Markus Weinzierl announced his departure, FC Augsburg is looking for a coach. According to reports, Gerhard Struber should be at the top of the wish list of the people of Fuggerstadt.
This reports Sport1. The Austrian Struber is currently active in the MLS with the New York Red Bulls and is said to have aroused interest from Germany on several occasions. Struber’s time as head coach at Wolfsberger AC, where he caused a sensation in the Europa League in 2019/20, also contributed to this.
Before Ole Werner signed on, the 45-year-old was traded as the new coach in Bremen, and the name Struber was also mentioned at Manchester United when it came to Ralf Rangnick’s assistant coach position.
Struber’s contract in New York runs until 2023. The native of Salzburg is currently in fifth place with the Bulls in the Eastern Conference, last season they finished in seventh place and failed in the first round of the play-offs.
In addition, the Augsburgers continue to deal with Enrico Maassen. However, the 38-year-old coach of the Dortmund U23s is also being courted by other clubs. Maaßen led the second representation of BVB to sovereign relegation in the 3rd division and is considered a promising talent on the sidelines.
