Fürth coach Stefan Leitl before moving to Hannover 96

He has just been relegated from the Bundesliga with Fürth. It is now reported that he will be on the sidelines for another second division club next season.

Head coach Stefan Leitl will move from Bundesliga relegated SpVgg Greuther Fürth to Hanover 96 second division football team, according to Sky TV. According to this, the 44-year-old will take over as head coach of Lower Saxony in the next season.

On Tuesday, “Bild” also reported on an alleged meeting between Leitl and the club’s leaders in Hanover. There was no confirmation of this. However, this coincides with the t-online information. Hanover has been in contact with Leitl for a long time.

Leitl uses the exit clause

Current 96 manager Christoph Dabrowski is still fighting for his job. “It’s clear I’m in the mood to continue here,” the 43-year-old said in a media round on Tuesday. Dabrowski’s contract expires at the end of this season. Sporting director Marcus Mann wants to talk about new contracts for coaches and players only once they have secured a place in the class.

As Sky reports, Fürth would have liked to continue working with Leitl, but now the manager is taking advantage of a release clause in his contract, which is actually valid until 2023. Nothing is officially known about a transfer fee. Leitl took over the club in 2019 and resoundingly managed to get promoted the previous year. The demotion of the rear light was already decided last weekend.
