It was clear for some time, now it’s official.
shared Thursday at 3:50 pm Hanover 96 via the homepage and Twitter with: “Farewell to Ingolstadt: Christoph Dabrowski leaves Hannover 96”.
Dabrowski (43) took over the pros in December after splitting from Jan Zimmermann (42) and saved them from relegation early. He previously coached the club’s Under 23 team (4th league) and spent a total of nine years in the junior division. Between 2006 and 2009 he himself played for the Reds in the Bundesliga.
96 did not want to extend the expiring contract. The Noch-Fuerther Stefan Leitl (44) will be Dabrowski’s successor, but it’s not official yet.
Head of sport Marcus Mann (38): “We would like to thank Christoph Dabrowski for nine years of full commitment and dedication to Hannover 96. He took over the team in a difficult situation in the winter, stabilized it and ultimately secured the Relegation. We wish him all the best for his future career, both from a sporting and personal point of view. For me personally, it has always been very pleasant to work with him. “
Dabro does not return to the youth academy, he remains in professional football and is looking for a new club: “My next steps will be in professional football. This is the path I want to continue on. I can look back on nine exciting and informative years at Hannover 96 and would like to thank everyone who has accompanied and supported me here, especially during the intensive period with the pros over the past six months. We have achieved our goal. However, I accept the club’s decision to do something different. It is absolutely clear that Hannover 96 will always be a special club for me. “
