According to Austrian media reports, the 103-time Austrian national player Andreas Herzog is a possible candidate for the head coach position at Bundesliga club Werder Bremen, which is threatened with relegation. The now 52-year-old once played at the Weser for a total of eight years.
“The fact is that I’ve often been traded somewhere, as the Austrian national coach, always in the media, including at Werder Bremen. That’s why I’m taking it easy,” said Herzog at Sky Sports News. He doesn’t want to “impose himself”.
Much more important is “that Thomas Schaaf and his boys win the last game against Gladbach and that they stay in the Bundesliga”. He doesn’t want to bring himself into play. That doesn’t help either, “said Herzog. The ex-Munich resident wouldn’t be averse to going to SV Werder:” This assumption is not bad … “, he said with a smile.
On Sunday, the Hanseatic coach Florian Kohfeldt (38) had released and ex-Werder master trainer Thomas Schaaf (60) transferred responsibility until the end of the season. What is certain is that the North Germans are looking for an external solution for the coming season.
The former midfielder was the U21 national coach in Austria and long-time assistant to Jürgen Klinsmann when he was the coach of the US team. Most recently, Herzog was Israel’s national coach from 2018 to 2020. However, Herzog is also traded as the new coach at Admira Wacker Mödling.
