According to a report by the TV broadcaster “Sky” from Bundesliga relegated SpVgg Greuther Fürth, coach Stefan Leitl changes to second division Hannover 96. According to this, the 44-year-old will take over the office of head coach near the Lower Saxony in the coming season.
The “Bild” newspaper also reported an alleged meeting between Leitl and the club managers in Hanover. There was no confirmation for this. Hanover is three game days before the end of the season second division-15. And is about six points before the relegation rank.
The current 96 coach Christoph Dabrowski is still fighting for his job. “It is clear that I feel like going here,” said the 43-year-old in a media round. Dabrowski’s contract expires after the end of this season. relegated SpVggs director Marcus Mann only wants to talk about new contracts for coaches and players when the class stay is secured.
As “Sky” reports, Fürth would have liked to continue working with Leitl, but the trainer now makes use of an exit clause in his contract, which actually still applies until 2023. Nothing is officially known about a transfer fee. Leitl had taken over the association in 2019 and sensationally made the promotion in the previous year. The descent of the final has been determined again since last weekend.
