Stevens joins Hamburg as Magath steps away
AMSTERDAM, Feb 2 (Reuters) - Dutchman Huub Stevens is to leave Roda JC Kerkrade immediately to take over at Hamburg SV, the Dutch club said on its Web site on Friday.
He succeeds Thomas Doll who was sacked on Thursday after Hamburg fell to the bottom of Bundesliga.
A statement on the Hamburg Web site said Stevens, 53, would be signing a contract until the end of June 2008.
Stevens, who led Schalke 04 to UEFA Cup final victory in 1997, told the Hamburg Web site: 'I'm very happy with this new job.'
