Dortmund to appoint Roeber as new coach

BERLIN, Dec 19 (Reuters) - Borussia Dortmund, who sacked coach Bert van Marwijk on Monday, have reached an agreement with former Hertha Berlin coach Juergen Roeber to replace him, according to Kicker magazine's online edition.

Bild newspaper reported on Tuesday that Dortmund managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke had interviewed Roeber for the job after first choice Ottmar Hitzfeld turned down their offer on Monday.

'Yes, it's true that we had a talk with him (Roeber) - there's no point trying to conceal it anymore,' Watzke told Bild. 'It was a very good talk, but I don't want to say any more at this time.'

Roeber was most recently coach of Partizan Belgrade but they parted company on May 11 after a disappointing season. Roeber has also coached VfL Wolfsburg and VfB Stuttgart.

He enjoyed a successful spell in his six years in Berlin from 1996 to 2002, leading the club out of the second division into the top flight and then into the Champions League.

Dortmund sacked van Marwijk on Monday after a 2-1 defeat by Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday left the side in ninth place with 22 points at the halfway stage of the season.

Dortmund have won only two of nine home matches this season and their disappointed fans mocked the team on Sunday - cheering Leverkusen when they went 2-0 ahead late in the match.

The Bundesliga resumes after the long winter break on Jan 26 when Dortmund host Bayern Munich.
