Werder Bremen hire Dutt as new coach

Werder Bremen have appointed Robin Dutt as their new coach, the club announced on Monday, after the 48-year-old was released from his contract with the German football federation.

The former Bayer Leverkusen and Freiburg coach had been on top of the list to succeed Thomas Schaaf at Werder Bremen. Late last week Dutt and Werder Bremen had asked the German federation (DFB) to release him from his contract as the DFB sporting director to make way for his instalment as the new Bremen coach.

On Monday the DFB freed Dutt from his duties and Werder Bremen announced his appointment Dutt will sign a three-year contract at the 2004 Bundesliga champions.

"With Robin Dutt we have signed our first-choice candidate for the coaching job. We are convinced we can shape a successful new beginning with him," Bremen general manager Thomas Eichin said and also thanked DFB officials for making the deal possible.

The new Bremen boss Robin Dutt also thanked his former employer and added: "I am very delighted to be back on the sidelines. Werder Bremen is a great club and a very interesting task which I will approach with great vigour."

Before joining the DFB in August 2012 to replace Matthias Sammer as sporting director, Robin Dutt had worked as a Bundesliga coach for Freiburg and Bayer Leverkusen, where he was sacked after only just over nine months in early April 2012.
