Frankfurt appoint Thomas Schaaf
Former Werder Bremen coach Thomas Schaaf has taken over as the new Eintracht Frankfurt coach.
Schaaf, 53, put pen to paper on a two-year deal on Wednesday and succeeds Armin Veh, who is set to coach his old club VfB Stuttgart in the new season.
During his 14 years at the helm of Bremen, Schaaf won the domestic double in 2004, two more German cups in 1999 and 2009, and reached the Champions League five times. In May 2013, having successfully battled relegation, he stepped down and has been out of a job ever since.
"I have been at one club for a long, long time, and now a new challenge awaits me," Schaaf told Eintracht TV. "I am looking forward to my new task and I am curious.
"In the last few years you could see which direction Eintracht Frankfurt has taken. They play interesting and attacking football. That's what I also stand for. I hope we can continue in this direction."
