Berlin, April 4: Werder Bremen’s head coach Florian Kohfeldt has penned a contract extension ahead of schedule with the German club.
The 35-year-old coach has been rewarded for securing Bremen’s top-flight status and leading the “Green-Whites” out of the relegation zone after taking over in October 2017, reports Xinhua news agency.
“He has led the team out of a difficult situation with clear ideas and a recognizable philosophy. We are convinced that he and his coaching staff will continue on this positive path in the future,” Bremen’s CEO Frank Baumann told the club’s official website.
Kohfeldt took the reins from Alexander Nouri at the end of Octorber 2017. Bremen were trapped in the Bundesliga bottom but Kohfeldt steered it out of the drop zone and onto 12th position of the standings.
“I regard this decision as a high esteem to my entire coaching staff and I am pleased that we can continue to shape the future of Werder Bremen in the coming years,” Kohfeldt said.
Bremen kick off the 29th round in Bundesliga when they encounter newly promoted Hannover on Friday.
