1. FC Nuremberg appoint Michael Wiesinger as their new coach
1. FC Nuremberg have decided to appoint 39 year old Michael Wiesinger as their new head coach, with assistant coach Armin Reutershahn remaining by his side to guide the team until the end of the German Bundesliga season. Just a couple of days after their now former head coach Dieter Hecking decided to move north to join VfL Wolfsburg, which forced the club management to react and they decided that second team coach Michael Wiesinger as an in-house option was the best for the club.
“In Michael Wiesinger and Armin Reutershahn, we have two coaches from within our own ranks who enjoy a high level of trust and acceptance,” the club’s technical director, Martin Bader, said.
Wiesinger had been a player at Nuremberg from 1993 to 1999 and then went to play for Bayern Munich and 1860 Munich before coaching FC Ingolstadt in der 3. Liga and then the second team of Nuremberg.
Nuremberg are currently 14th in the Bundesliga table and will want to avoid relegation.
